Elevenses on 11-11-11

"Full Moon" Pumpkin Cookies (Biscuits) with Cream Cheese Icing and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, to honor the Wolf Moon on 11-11-11.

In the United Kingdom, Ireland and some Commonwealth Realms elevenses is a snack that is similar to afternoon tea, but eaten in the morning. It is generally less savory than brunch, and might consist of some cake or biscuits with a cup of coffee or tea.. The name refers to the time of day that it is taken: around 11 am. (source)

  2. I can vouch that elevensies is most definitely an important time in the day, in the UK. Perish the thought of missing it!
