Happiness in a Bowl

Seriously, look at how pretty this is!  I’m totally having salad for lunch tomorrow, this was that exciting! 

—————————————————————————————

I had some calories left over for the day (it’s a bad idea to go below 1200 calories.  You can’t meet nutritional needs that low) so I decided to have some chai tea!

Chai tea really is my guilty pleasure.  I tried it a few years ago while on vacation and have been addicted ever since.  Unfortunately, the brand I first tried is impossible to find! I’ve been looking for a suitable replacement and haven’t quite found it yet but I’ve had lots of amazing cups of tea.  Who knew there could be so many wonderful variations on essentially the same thing? 

I love my eco coffee cup.  The lid is my favorite part!  Of all the coffee cups I have, I really only use this one and everybody else gets the others.  This cup holds a special place in my heart.

The picture’s grainy because I took it with my webcam, but you can see how excited I am about this.  It’s wonderful!

Chai Tea:

  • 1 stash chai tea bag
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • vanilla!

First I microwave the tea bag in the water in my cup for two minutes.  I then add the milk vanilla, and sugar and test it to see if it’s warm enough.  If it’s not I’ll microwave it a little longer.  It’s happiness in a cup Happy
