Tea for Tuesday

Cradled Eggs

I was able to enjoy sunrise through a high window in our bedroom. No surprise, I even popped outside for a photo. Somehow, participating in the day's debut made me yearn for some "ME" TLC.

These Cradled Eggs were the ticket! Using red bell peppers as the enclosure, I added eggs, Parmigiano Reggiano, scallions, oregano, sea salt and pepper. I found it useful to hold the bell pepper rings down with a spatula until the egg sets a bit. This keeps the eggs corralled. I was quite pampered, even if I was the one doing it!

Florence Flavored Black Tea

I also ordered some Florence Flavored Black Tea from Harney & Sons. Their website says this: "Our delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Tea, better known as Florence. We can't always be sipping hot cocoa while sitting in the Palazzo della Signoria. But, we can sip this decadent blend of chocolate and hazelnut and dream we are there."

Lastly, I keep giggling because of something Chef Brock (13-year old son) did last night. He made dinner for both of us by cooking up Schwan's Tomato Basil Soup and baking Schwan's Southern Biscuits. He watches "Top Chef" and "Chopped" with me, so he created his own personal touches. He said, "It's all in the presentation, Mom." There was a big puddle of soup on my plate. He had used a spoon to add what he hoped would be swooshes, but the soup was not viscous enough. It was so cotton-pickin' cute! I love that kid!
