I thought it would be a great idea to make mini tea cakes for a little snack when you have a cup of tea. Its getting cold here in Florida, down to 50s or 40s at night but nice and warm at 70 during the day. I like to have something hot to drink at night and when I wake up in the morning but also like a snack :)
I used a pumpkin cake mix and poured into a long 24 inch glass pan that I coated with cool butter and baked, let cool, then cut into small squares. I did the same with a vanilla cake mix :)
The pumpkin tea cakes went fast, my family took half of them! :)
yum that sounds delicious...it's getting chilly now so i asked for soup...sending you joy and sweet peace
you dont even get snow there, try a few winters in canada or russia, then youll know what cold actually is.
yeah i get it , korea was probably your coldest experience, in alberta they get -40 C which is -40F as well frequently there. i still wear shorts to -10C
I know what you mean Sarah....I live in Florida and when it is 55 in the mornings now, to me that seems cold, lol...But I used to live in Maine my whole life, so when I call my kids in Maine and I complain it is getting cold here they laugh at me and say yeah, righttttttt. I moved from Maine to escape the cold because it was very bad for my health....I used to stiffen up like a robot and could barely move due to RA. Here in Florida I do much better, but I hear you about anything lower than 65 feeling cold, lol...
It's posts like that that get me reading up on new ways to make my food healthier and tastier at the same time. The limitation is actually fun because it brings out the creativity. Pumpkin is very good for fighting off and easing colds as most people know.
Over here in Australia some people like to dip timtams (chocolate wafer biscuit) in their tea to make for a nice snack/drink. Some do it with coffee too. Since i stopped eating barely any dairy products now something like these cakes would make for a great replacement for the odd energy boost on the go.
Medicinal tea's are a great way to feel better if you use the right ones at the right time I'm learning. I've been experimenting with making cold water tea in a spring water bottle with honey and lots of sunlight. All you need is a bottle of water, a bottle of honey, a steady hand and good teabags that won't break and nature can do the rest. Have to keep it moving on a really hot day though! If the plastic melts, don't drink it. Who knows, maybe that water resonance effect might be useful too?
Some people believe anyone can make and bless holy water.
You should! You've just as much right as anyone else to enjoy clean holy water.
