Spread this on a shoe

Here are the recipes for the tea sandwiches I made for the Fancy Garden Party this weekend. As Meghan pointed out, you could spread this stuff on a shoe and it would be delicious. On thinly sliced bread with the crusts cut off, they're tres fancy to boot.

mix together the radishes, poppy, cream cheese and salt. spread radish mixture on buttered bread and top with a few arugula leaves

Vidalia Sandwiches

2 T minced fresh tarragon

mix together mayo, half the parsley, tarragon, lemon, and tabasco. spread on both sides of the bread, with the vidalia in the middle. cut off the crusts, butter an edge of the sandwich, and dip in the reserved parsley. very fancy presentation, and surprisingly delicious.
