The rain is starting and the cold is settling in. Snow flurries are called for this weekend, which hasn't happened in the Sacramento area since the mid 70's. Everyone is freaking out, but still secretly hoping it might stick for more than a few moments, at least long enough to scoop some up. This is definitely the afternoon for hot tea. I love tea in the winter, and in the summer I brew it, cool it, and add ice! A few years ago we discovered Stash brand of tea. They make fabulous regular and herbal teas in all sorts of interesting flavors. So here I sit, after putting together a spinach and bacon quiche for dinner (which I may or may not blog about later), and take a few quiet moments before everyone comes home and the chaos starts!!
