So, like I said the other night, I've not been drinking this last week (well, I did last night and remembered what poison can do to yr body), instead turning to tea at nights to wet my whistle.
To make it a little more interesting (not that tea is BORING per se, it's just... not booze) I decided to make a chai drink. It may not be entirely traditional, but I like the flavor.
I steep Irish breakfast tea in the boiling water and stir in a little less than 1/2 teaspoon each of: cocoa powder, powdered ginger, and cinnamon. Sweetened with agave and add in a good splash of vanilla almond milk.
It's especially nice tonight, since it's snowing outside. Snow can transform even dirty, tired Bushwick into a sparkly magicland. Some shots from the walk home:
I thew a shot of coffee into the chai as well tonight, as I've got lotsa writing I want to get done (that was the "exciting stuff" to work on, Ingrid - sorry to tease!) and snacked on a couple of these cookie bites for dessert.
So now I'm caffeinated and cookiefied and warm. So that's nice. Hope you guys are cozy on this winter weekend evening.
