Halfway there

and I have a half day friday! I have a nuerology apt. which I'm not looking forward too.

How was everyones night last night? I made lemon pepper chicken with carrots and northern beans for dinner.

Tonight I threw spaghetti sauce and ground beef in the crockpot, since I have class tonight, that was the easiest thing to do :)

Re: Halfway there

  • Oops- I started a thread below. 

  • I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO POST ...

    I made meatloaf last night. True comfort food, but a healthier version (you couldn't tell).

    Supervising relief this morning, teaching two classes, and trying to catch students who skipped Tuesday's exam to write a make up. Meeting after school with a parent, errands to run in the cold (-39 again this morning), workout this evening, and junior high exam tomorrow morning.

    I want sleep.

    Trying a new tea this morning - called Chocolate Rocket. Higher caffeine than the ones I've been drinking, and it's a blend of chocolate, raspberry, chicory and almond. Not bad.

    I am becoming a tea snob.

  • Jenny, that sounds delicious! I'm kind of a tea snob, too. I like all sorts of flavors but getshy about trying new onces since I've had a bunch I didn't like, so it sits in the pantry unused. 

  • David's Tea is where it's at. Here's my beginner lowdown:

    Organic the Skinny: Oolong digestive tea with a hint of orange. My fave. (low caffeine)

    Read my Lips: black tea with chocolate and peppermint, with a dash of 'red lip' cinnamon candy. (Pretty good, but took me a while to aquire a taste). Also low caffeine.

    Chocolate Rocket: the one I'm packing right now. Cocoa, raspberry, chicory and amonds. Easier to take to than the other chocolate one. Am enjoying it. (higher caffeine)

    Cocoa Chai Roobios: have only had this one once so far, but I think it's awesome! Roobios, coconut, cinnamon, pink peppercorns, ginger, cardamon, cloves ... (caffeine free)

    It's where the cool people go! lol (I just posted this to GIS - total copy and paste)

  • Tea is also my caffine vehicle of choice.

    Jenny, are David's Teas loose leaf or bagged? Just curious. I've been brewing loose leaf and feel like a mad scientist sitting at my desk with little tins and spoons and such...

    Anyone ever tried Talbott Teas? (http://www.talbottteas.com/) Saw them on Shark Tank and they have some delicious sounding flavors!

  • They're loose. I have a tea ball for home, but my kids gave me a mug with a built in steeper in it for Christmas. You can also buy reusable bags from them as well, I think they're muslin - but I'm not 100%. I bought the tea ball because I wasn't sure I was going to like it and didn't want to invest a lot.

    The mug is awesome.

  • The mug is also from David's.

    Mine is like this, only stainless on the inside, with white trees on the outside so you can't see through it. I can't find it on their website now, but it's the same principle. Mine might have been a part of a Christmas promotion or something.
