Today for lunch I made turkey panini with sautéed onions, lettuce, Raspberry Enlightenment from Penzey’s, and mozzarella cheese. As a side dish I had rotini noodles with Double Devon Cream, Parmesan, and mozzarella cheese. To me, that meal screams for a good, stout Chinese black tea, like Keemun Hao Ya or Fengqing Dragon Pearls. But hubby doesn’t go for many black teas…yet. His favorite black tea is Ceylon, and even then only certain Ceylons will do.

He liked this one very well, and drank three cups to my one. I really wanted some tea after lunch so I tried resteeping the leaves, something I don’t do with just any black tea because so many come out weak. This was definitely weaker, but still very enjoyable.

Side note: the puppy we are fostering because she was hit by a car is doing well and should be ready to go up for adoption in a month or less. The puppy I keep on Tuesdays is staying with us indefinitely now since his owner is in the hospital having tests run. So every bite I eat, every sip I drink, is watched by three pairs of eager eyes…

My Mom stayed at my house over Christmas. With our own dogs/cats and then the foster dog and foster cat, we had 5 dogs and 3 cats. That’s a lot of eyes watching as we ate our Christmas dinner, hahaha! Good luck with the foster pups!

Thanks! The vet says little Rosie will definitely keep her leg, so that was great news! We will probably have her until near the end of January.

I have some Raspberry Enlightenment too! I’ve only used it in a chicken dish so far. Have you used it in other dishes that you like? I want to try the salad dressing :)

..and three pups! Your cup runneth over :)

We have used it for a dip with Lil Smokies wrapped in Crescent Rolls, our version of pigs in a blanket. I have also put it on turkey and ham sandwiches. A deli in Raleigh outs apple butter and it was so good that I thought RE would be, too, and it really is. Hubby likes it! That is the only way I have used it so far, and I am almost out!
