drank Golden Wheat Head by Red Leaf Tea
1705 tasting notes

Needed something v-e-r-y light to top off dinner (more on that in a minute), so I reused leaves and managed to coax out a second, very subtle steep. Still has a lovely sweet dried grass taste; you just have to think about it.

Now, dinner. It’s so hot (sun was directly on it, but our garage thermometer registered 112 shortly after lunch) we’re pretending it’s dead of winter with curtains drawn, puttering with indoor crafts and projects…and the following recipe:

Slice pound cake. Melt butter in skillet. Coat on both sides and sizzle it brown on both sides. Set aside.

In the same hot skillet, dump fresh blueberries and drizzle in a generous amount of maple syrup. Bubble it to a froth.

Top pound cake with ice cream, then blueberry goop. Eat in a very comfy chair, because you will not be able to get up for a while.

You had me at butter.

I love recipes that are more assembly instructions than actual cooking.

My mom used to make strawberry waffles with whipped cream or ice cream and bacon on a hot evening (no one had air conditioning in those days). I know the feeling of sitting down in a lump. Here I sits and I dont’s move!

My godparents used to toast their pound cake under the broiler on each side, then add vanilla ice cream. I don’t think it was buttered, though. Adding fruit like you did would just take it right over the top. Drooling…

Buttered pound cake. Oh, yum. I recently discovered pan toasted/carmelized angel food cake with strawberries in balsamic vinegar. I believe next up will be buttered pound cake and I have some blueberries handy, too… :)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
