A day inside brings out inside projects. The last time we were at an art store we picked
up some scratch boards. I hadn’t used one of these since high school. It was so fun, and
such a different way of drawing . . .
We played some good old fashion board games . . .
I also made the yummiest chai . . .
I usually like making it entirely from scratch, or I use a simple chai tea bag.
This time I was in a hurry, but I wanted the real deal, so I did this half-way version.
This is a rough guess as to what I did:
Bring to a simmer then simmer for several minutes:
2 cups water
2 black chai tea bags
1 black tea bag
3 ginger tea bags
a few whole allspice
a dash of ground cardamon
a dash of ground cinnamon
a pinch of ground nutmeg
a pinch ground black pepper
Pull out the tea bags and add:
3 cups almond milk
Honey or agave syrup to taste
Of course now it is sunny again . . . but there is still that
clean-ness to the air, and sparkle to the clouds.
