Every morning this month I've been getting up and making
tea in my Christmas Cardinal/Poinsettia Mug.
I found the mug and teapot at Homegoods last year.
It's a BIG mug (Gibson Elite China) and filled with
Twinings Christmas Tea, gets the day off to a wonderful, warm start.
Twinings Christmas Tea is a black tea with a little cinnamon and cloves.
In the evening I have Twinings Winter Spice.
It is camomile tea spiced with cinnamon, cardamon and cloves.
Just in case you haven't noticed,
I love cardinals!
I missed getting to the gym this morning.
On days when I miss walking on the treadmill,
I try to walk into my village (weather permitting).
Off I went with a list of books to look for at Half-Price books.
This book wasn't on my list!
But Mary at Home Is Where The Boat Is was very impressed
with Nigella Christmas. In fact, she even gave a copy away!
I didn't win (!!) and when I saw this at the book store I just had to give it a good look and I ended up bringing it home.
I'm glad I did.
My mouth has been watering and tummy growling all afternoon!
It's worth the price for the recipe for the poinsettia cocktail!
I love butternut squash and look forward to trying butternut orzotto.
It's a beautiful book and I probably should have picked up a few extras for gifts -- great price at Half-Price Books!
Thanks to our tea party hostesses.
These are just a few of the tea parties in the Land of Blog.
Wishing YOU well and a wonderful cup of tea!
