New Teacup `~ New Tea




I have a new Teacup that I would like to share with you.
Found it one day while out shopping.
It has Dorchester on the bottom.


 I looked it up on the internet and found that it is from the Royal Albert Series from the 1960's and 70'.




 I loved it at first sight!




 This morning I made Banana nut muffins and added a handful of walnuts to the batter. 
Yummy!




 Now my granddaughter, Anna, loves Chocolate Mint Tea.
I couldn't find her the one with mint in it, but I did find this
Bigelow Chocolate Chai.  She said it's alright for me to try it first before I give it to her. (she's really sweet)




Well it's ok but not a favorite.  It has species in it but didn't say what kind, and they were a little strong for me.


I think I'll stick to my Earl Gray!

Slaw Recipe




Have you ever had a recipe that you loved but somehow you hadn't made it in months or years, and you wonder why?
That happened to me last weekend. We were having a picnic at a local lake and I said I would bring the slaw. Well the temperature was in the 90's and I thought mayonnaise might not be a good idea. Then I remembered I had a recipe for Marinated Cole Slaw. Have you ever tried it?  It is really good. Here's the recipe.



  1 large head cabbage, graded thin slices

2 med. onions, cut small (optional)

1 large bell pepper, cut small pieces

1 finely chopped carrot

mix together and sprinkle 3/4 cup sugar over mixture and let stand.

Bring to boil for 5 minutes, 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 Teaspoon salt, 1 Tablespoon sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed, 1/2 cup veg. oil.  Pour over cabbage while still hot, stir let stand for 24 hours in refrigerator.  Serve and enjoy.

 My girls had forgotten that they liked it.  I'll be making it again soon to take to my sisters for our family get together on Sept.6th. Maybe even more now that I have remembered that I love it!


Have a Blessed Day!

My Hiding Place






You are my hiding place,
You always fill my heart with songs of deliverance,
Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
Let the weak say I am strong, in the strength of my Lord.
Psalm 3: 7


Blessing for the Day!

It's Time for a Tea Break!



Old Blue Monday, a day of housework and chores!

When it gets you down then it's time to stop and take a break!



Enjoy life sip by sip,
Not gulp by gulp.

Enjoy your afternoon break,

A Grain of Mustard Seed





With all the troubles and trying times today there is hope to overcome!
 
This is a pack of mustard seeds



This is a grain of mustard seed




"If you have the Faith of a Grain of Mustard Seed .......
nothing shall be  impossible unto you" Matthew 17:20

The mustard seed is very small, but a little can be so big if you have faith!
