This post is kind of a copycat of Deb's post, things she's liking this week, except I'm adding a spin on mine with a disliking portion.
First off, the things I'm liking....
Big Island Candies' lemon shortbread. I received these from my Aunty Marian, lemon shortbread with lemon bits in it, some covered in white chocolate, some in dark, some plain.
Not really a fan of white chocolate, I was surprised that the lemon shortbread actually matched the white chocolate more than the dark. (Thank you Aunty!)
With this awful humidity, I'm also liking cold drinks...Blueberry Bliss tea from Teavana. I received this from Deb when I met her. This tea is refreshing and delicious! I love the mixture of blueberry, rooibos and rosehip. (Thank you Deb!)
Last summer I read of a great way to make iced tea without having to heat up the water on the stove. Just pour 1 liter of water into a jug and add 3 tea scoops (about 3 tablespoons) of tea. Put the jug into your refrigerator overnight. Of course, if you want to make your tea stronger, add more tea leaves.
And iced coffee...when I make espresso or brew some coffee, I try to make extra to chill for the following day.
When drinking it, I add some milk to my coffee and then add more ice...mmm. If you use sweetener, you may want to make a simple syrup to put in the chilled coffee or put sugar into the coffee/espresso while it is hot. I drink my coffee black so I don't put any sweeteners in.
I am liking eating from the rainbow. Dinners have been mostly veggie type. For this particular meal I had eringi with kim chee, carrot salad, couscous pesto salad, 2 bean salad and fig with gorgonzola honey and pecan.
It was my first time making fresh figs with gorgonzola, a drizzle of honey and some pecans...mmm!
So, what is the part that I am disliking? After making the fabulous dinner mentioned above, Satoshi calling me last minute to say that he will be eating out...too bad, more for me!
What are you liking/disliking?
