Today I'm participating in Creative Kitchens over at Reflective Ponderings.
First off, I thought I would share the Gingerbread Muffin recipe that I used the other day.
Yesterday I finally made good on an ambition of 12 years -- to visit one of the local health food stores. Just as Alaina mentioned several weeks ago, they have a nice selection of herbs and spices in bulk and I stocked up! What fun! Try to imagine the wonderful aromas wafting their way out of my brown bag: ground cardamom, ground cloves, garam masala, ground coriander, etc.
I also discovered a shelf with the Celestial Seasonings holiday teas on sale. I really love the Candy Cane Lane which is made out of decaf green tea with peppermint and vanilla.
There was a new one to try yesterday -- Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride. Opening the package, one is greeted with the most delightful sugar cookie smell. I think this tea is fast becoming another favorite. The thought just came to me -- it is slightly reminiscent of that scent that the Children's Museum uses in their pretend cookie baking room (ha ha ha!).
With gingerbread muffins, and one of these teas, you can have a very festive tea time sometime this month!
And now I'm off to try to work on my cards. :) Life seems busy at the moment.
