Wednesday! Almost to the week-end. This morning’s tea is brought to us by Harney & Sons Teas. African Autumn is a caffeine-free herbal. It’s part of their Historical Palaces Teas. Red Bush, hibiscus, orange peel, cranberry and orange flavors.
The color is a deep burgundy and it is a mellow and comforting tea. I love it.
This book came to my house just the other day. I was skeptical. I don’t like recipes with a ton of ingredients. I like my food to be just-food. And this book is full of food. With a lot of herbs and spices. No fake meat, or complicated things to add. Just good food that my tummy can tolerate and digest. So this one is a keeper.
On a totally different note…does anyone else have a blast talking to their elder parents? My momma is 81. Talking to her on the phone is funny as heck! This morning I was crying on her shoulder about someone being verbally mean to me and her answer was to go to the wedding and object. Do it! She said. I’m like, uh, no. I’ll just pretend they are dead. That’s my usual go-to. So after her advice, she began telling me about the cook. She’s putting too much mayonnaise in the sandwiches. It’s seeping out of the sandwich. It’s unappetizing. She’s already told her once and now she just isn’t going to buy mayonnaise. Also, she just received a pair of pants made by Martha Stewart from QVC.
I had no idea Martha was making pants now! But she is. And they come in 00. She gave all of her ‘fat’ clothes away to the lady down the block who is on the small side. Everyone else on her block is huge to hear her tell it! Honestly, I didn’t know pants came in 00. Why not just shop in the kids’ section?? So that has been my morning so far. I laughed for a solid 20 minutes. And then she says, ‘I have to go lie down now, send some cookies.’.
I hope your day is full of tea and cookies and laughter. Sometimes it really is the best medicine.
