My favorite "pick-me-up" as of late . . . a hot cup of Bigelow Vanilla Caramel tea (with sugar and milk of course!) and a turtle pecan biscotti. A blissful experience indeed. The biscotti I found at Wal.mart, unfortunately they don't carry this tea, so that I usually get at Sup.er Sa.ver (and the French Vanilla is also very good). I always think of biscotti as more a "coffee thing" but it goes quite well with tea too. And hey, there's only 110 calories, which is about what a piece of fruit has . . . Apple--bicotti--apple--biscotti . . . So sorry apple, you lose. (See, decision-making made that much easier). ;o)
And also, I got the ingredients to make my most favorite spinach artichoke dip--it starts out with fresh spinach which you cook down. Yes, it's a bit more time consuming but it is AWESOME. If only one could live on chip and dip alone. And tea. Head here if you're in need of a good dip recipe.
We're enjoying a dark and rainy day here. Just perfect for tea . . . biscotti . . . hot dip . . . hmmmm. ;o)
