scones and tea

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Every now and again, I do up a proper tea time with scones and cream.  This is earl grey tea in my favorite Anthropolgie mug, gluten-free english muffin, homemade whipped cream by yours truly, some perfect little raspberries and some dark Belgian chocolate.  Totally decadent.


huevos divorciados

I love me some good huevos divorciados.  Especially good with a side order of plaintains.  Sazon on South Lamar in Austin makes this yummy breakfast.


whiskey punch

How to make yourself some Whiskey Punch:

1)  go to Florida
2)  at the beach, go to the only liquor store and buy the only whiskey they have.  This could well be Jim Bean Bourbon.
3)  buy yourself some real bonafide Florida oranges, then make fresh-squeezed orange juice
4)  squeeze some Meyer’s lemons too
5)  add one wee can of pineapple juice (also bought at beach liquor store)
6)  pour it all together
7)  add green straw

We couldn’t find a true recipe based on the above, so we let Lucy, age 6, name it.  Now officially it is called:
Triple Whipple Fantastic Orange Yumminess
(Note:  Lucy did not have any of this drink!)
