So what did I do with some of that chocolate stash? Truffles, of course.

blizzard of ’06?

Wednesday, December 20th, 2006

When we heard this storm referred to as the Blizzard of ’06 on the radio, Jeremy and I looked at each other and laughed. We’ve heard a lot about the blizzard in March ’03 from several neighbors and friends. I’ve seen dozens of pictures of said friends shoveling several feet of snow off their decks and drives. We just didn’t think this would amount to much.

gold rush

Monday, December 18th, 2006

I got a package from Ro! What a total sweetheart. She went to a lot of trouble to send us this certain special tea from the Huntington. Love her so much. It’s the best smelling tea ever. If it wasn’t meant for consumption, I’d scatter it about my house as potpourri. We’re sending a few tins to our parents because both sets seem to love it too. Jeremy brewed a pot tonight and now I’m wired beyond belief.

If only blogs were scratch-n-sniff. This smells of peach and passion fruit, but is a lovely black tea with orange blossom and other dreamy ingredients. I wish I could give everyone a tin of this tea. If you live in Pasadena – run now to the Huntington! They only carry it in the rose garden tea room this month.
