    12 ounces button, cremini, or shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and cut into 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick slices 1 large red bell pepper, cored, seeded and cut into 1 1/2 by 1/2 inch (3.8 by 1.25 cm) strips 1 pint (550 mL) cherry tomatoes 1/4 cup (60 mL) soy sauce 2 Tbsp (30 mL) sugar 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sesame oil 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 Tbsp (30 mL) sesame seeds, toasted 1/2 tsp (2 mL) freshly ground black pepper 8 to 10 bamboo skewers, soaked for at least 2 hours

    Thread mushroom strips onto skewers so they will rest flat on the grill. When threading them, alternate with red pepper strips and cherry tomatoes. In a bowl whisk together soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic, 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sesame seeds, and pepper. Place kebabs in a large container and pour soy sauce mixture over them. Let marinate for about 2 hours, turning once.

    Place kebabs on grill and cook over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes, turning with tongs and brushing regularly with reserved marinade.

    The mushrooms and tomatoes should be tender and the peppers browned. Sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

      An Elegant Afternoon Tea

      Whether you call her Mom, Mother, Momma, or Mum, an afternoon tea is the perfect way to celebrate that special person in your life. It can not only be a fun and elegant occasion but also offer a wonderfully relaxed celebration. Afternoon tea has come to be a sort of ritual that allows you to slow down and take your time. The pace is gentle and calm, allowing time for everyone to unwind. Because it’s also something we don’t all do every day, it can help spark conversation and provide a special sense of occasion. The host can prepare food in advance, and with plenty of options both savoury and sweet, it can easily provide something that all will enjoy. And because offerings are all beautifully laid out and displayed, there’s no getting up and down from the table, which leaves everyone free for the most important reason for gathering—spending time with Mom. With afternoon tea, there’s plenty of opportunity to visit and spend time together and enjoy delicious food; these six recipes will help you prepare an afternoon tea to nourish body and soul and to celebrate Mom in style.
