Fall is here- or at least it looks like it in Sam's Club (Yes I'm writing at work again). There are giant pumpkins on display, halloween candy, and even the first hints of Christmas items. A lady called in at work a couple of days ago asking if we had Christmas trees yet, but I think she was getting a little ahead of herself. Nonetheless, it looks like fall in here. Outside it's about the same as it has been all summer-- sunny and warm. I think most people would find me crazy for complaining about that but I've always loved fall and winter. I love boots and peacoats and snuggling up next to a warm fire. I will say this, Savannah has better seasons than El Paso ever did. Nonetheless I find myself craving snow capped mountains, and crisp morning air. I guess I need to go back to Washington for that.
The thing that fall and winter holds for me that I can control though, are the traditions that come with it, and today I'm going to share one of my favorites-- Hot spice tea. This is my mom's recipe and she starts making it every November at about the same time that she starts getting out the Christmas music. I like to start a little earlier in the season. I'm not very patient.
Before I post this recipe, I will add a bit of a disclaimer-- this recipe is not for everyone. It's the kind of thing that you either love or hate. I think it is spiced goodness, but my husband can't even stand the smell. The same goes for my parents.
Ok enough of that, here's the recipe:
This is meant to be drank hot, but I prefer it chilled. Either way, it's delicious.
Ok now let's hear the reviews-- who loves it and who hates it? It'll be my first Poetry and Pesto case study.
