So I went inside to collect my dinner and invited my husband and son outside to eat with me by the pond. My husband declined, saying he wanted to watch the news, but my son seemed intrigued by something different, I guess, so he and I went out and shared a meal while gazing upon this lovely view you see here. We talked, too, which is often rare with a 21 year-old. Yes, I'm still in Time Out with the internet, but you see how I'm not letting it get to me, right? The biggest drag is that I can't visit all your beautiful blogs in the evening and I have to sneak a peak during lunchtime at school. The tea I made is good for you. It's Bigelow's Green Tea with fresh lemon juice and grated ginger. It's really quite refreshing! Here's the recipe: Green Tea with Lemon & Ginger 4 green tea bags (I used Bigelow original green) 1 1/2 tsp. finely grated ginger 6 Tbsp. sugar 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Boil 4 cups water and add tea bags and ginger. Let steep around 10 minutes. In pitcher, combine sugar and lemon juice then strain tea in through fine sieve. Add another 2 cups cold water. Serve over ice.
If you don't like ginger, reduce the amount until it suits. I used 2 tsp. and it was just too much.
