Time for Chai

My current favorite recipe for chai:

  1. A good mug, having a smallish surface area so the drink doesn’t cool off too fast.
  2. Celestial Seasonings India Spice Chai, 1 bag.
  3. boiling water
  4. powdered milk, 4 heaping teaspoons (Fat free, yet creamy! Woot!)
  5. granulated sugar, 2 heaping teaspoons (Dude, if it’s not sweet, it’s not chai)
  6. a timer set for 4 minutes

Steep the tea for 4 minutes or a few seconds longer.  DO NOT SQUEEZE THE BAG.  Remove the bag.  Add milk and sugar, stirring.  Drink and relax.  If you’re really fortunate, you will enjoy the entire cup before it cools.  If your kids interrupt you with things like, “Gannon rode my bike and the chain came off,” or “Will you please call the national guard now,” do not despair.  This is yummy iced as well.

By the way, those are examples of two actual interruptions I have had during this very cup of chai, which I am now sipping.

    I love your sense of humor!! It is so like mine 🙂

    That tea sounds WONDERFUL (even with the interruptions).

My blog. Herein read entries related to who and what is important to me. Feel free to leave comments. I feel free to delete them if I don't like them. So there. By reading about my life, readers should expect to begin to see their own lives as increasingly more organized and sophisticated, their homes cleaner and neater.

Why This Blog?

Well, mostly this is for my family to see pictures and read anecdotes about the kids. It's also a venue for telling the story of my struggles and victories in my life as a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a teacher. Occasionally I toss in some weird or touching item that I've found.

What’s Christianity All About?

The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. [as said by John Piper]
