this is a collection of yummy things sitting on my desk right now, making me feel all kinds of happy.
clockwise from the top:
- awesome shell, found on the beach of Carpinteria, given to me by a friend. (thanks P! <3)
- mojo bag
- collection of things i like – found in nature from various watery places (rivers, oceans) – on a piece of fabric i bought in Haiti several years ago. and a little note i wrote in swirly letters, just like i used to do when i was a kid.
- spicy herbal tea
i’m drinking some of this tea right now, and it’s just so damn cozy and delicious on a cold wintery day, that i had to share the recipe.
the ingredients are:
- whole cloves
- whole green cardamon
- whole black peppercorns
- cinnamon stick
- milk and sweetener to taste
i’m not much for measuring specific amounts. i highly recommend working with bare fingers and intuition :]
also, i used maple syrup to sweeten this tea. i’m usually a honey gal, but someone yesterday mentioned that they love sweetening their coffee with maple syrup, so i decided to try it with this tea. gooooooood!
wishing you a warm and tasty weekend,
