This morning I brewed up four ounces of this double strength, stirred in a teaspoon of vanilla bean sugar (can you tell I made a trip to Whole Foods?), and topped with four ounces of steamed milk. Love love love. For two weeks I am swearing off refined sugars and alcohol in preparation for my belt test this weekend, BUT I am making a small exception for some sugar in my earl grey. This sweet, creamy earl grey is staving off my increasingly persistent cravings for sweets at the moment, but it’s doing nothing for my craving for a pint, though… Only four more days until the test! My celebration stout is chilling in the fridge.
