NOTE: VICTORY TEA PARTY HAS BEEN POST PONED UNTIL 100 lb WEIGHT LOSS HAS BEEN ACHIEVED… NEW DATE WILL BE POSTED SOON!!
Well my year living on wartime rations is drawing to a close. I have 15 more wartime recipes to cook and will continue to exercise and eat as they did in Great Britain during World War II and finally weigh in, take my measurements and probably shed a few tears on October 1st…
The blog WILL NOT stop! I love this too much! Although after October 1st I won’t be living 100% on wartime rations anymore, I’ll still be recreating recipes, doing more research into rationing and the home front and will spend time on building a resource for schools as well as writing that book!
To kind of celebrate the end of rationing and a victory against morbid obesity, we’ll be having a VIRTUAL VICTORY TEA-PARTY (thank you to Lili for this GREAT idea!) here at my home (just the children and I) and on the blog where we hope many of you lovely blog readers will send photos in of your wartime celebratory victory food!
Send your name, country, recipe name, website address (we’ll link to it) and of course your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and put in the subject line VICTORY TEA PARTY… I think it will be GREAT fun!
At 3 pm (Atlantic Canada Time) which is 7 pm (GMT) in Great Britain we’ll have a live virtual chat open on the front of the website with your wonderful photos and I hope we can all enjoy a 1940s Virtual Knees Up and Gossip! There will be wartime sound effects and tunes for you to listen to and YES the Hobbits and I will be enjoying a real celebratory tea-party at that time in our little home..
Hope you can come
Please spread the word, the more the merrier and we’d love to see you..

WHat an awesome idea! I may have to look up some recipes and join in! Congrats! And I am so glad you’ll be continuing!
Live virtual chat? Hooray! I have my copy of We’ll Eat Again in front of me. There’s a Ginger Parkin I’ve been meaning to investigate for some time. And tea sandwiches. And scones with jam and mock cream. Yum. This is going to be fun.
Ohhhh I am really hoping we can share photos- I can’t WAIT to see what people make or cook and take a piccy of:) I’d imagine our virtual table will be groaning !!! THANK YOU again for the great idea! xxxx
Yes I am looking into a live virtual chat thingy, its a chance for saying hello to each other and asking questions, sharing recipes, being silly 🙂
Delighted to accept your cordial invitation. But – too many recipes to choose from! The pressure!
I can’t wait to see what you cook and send 🙂 Hee Hee… This should be interesting and FUN 🙂 C xxx Thank you!
I don’t know if I can make the party “live” but I am making a No Cheese sauce that you will love. I put it on macaroni to take to potlucks. Since I will still be on the ration plan, I will put it on some veggies.
