I have stopped going to the Mexican restaurant because as much as I love the cheese and cheese and cheese dip and cheese! I can’t digest it very well anymore and I have two days of misery! or at least one night of reflux. But daughter visited tonight and really wanted to go, so we did. As a preventative measure, we made a huge pot of puerh tonight and we all drank it. Within minutes, the heaviness was lifting and the meal was not making miserable. (Oh, how I love hot melty cheese!)

My cake of puerh is now officially gone, expended, no longer in existence. I told hubby this means I get to panic and replace it with an order of ten more cakes of puerh. ( I do have a few more already here at home, so I will work on those!)

This has been an earthy, rich, delightful treat.

I miss cheese SO much. I’ve been off dairy completely since I was young…sigh…

The power of CHEESE! My wife has to be careful. Not me. Well only in I have to stop… eventually. Cheese!

JustJames: I buy five or six gallons of milk a week for the four of us. I buy the large fat free Greek yogurt for smoothies and as a sour cream substitute everywhere, and right now we have smoked cheddar, sharp cheddar, Colby jack, mozzarella, and smoked Gouda, as well a s a local hoop cheese. Something about the spices or the fat content (more likely) at the Mexican restaurant make me miserable after I eat there. I guess I love cow in every form….milk, cheese, steak….LOL!

K S: I eat all the cheese I want at home, so I guess it is the salsa and spices that set me off? Maybe hey cook with a lot of fat, too. I love it, but it doesn’t love me back.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
