January has been quite the interesting month weather wise....While December was all about SNOW....January...has been about MELTING SNOW. We've had a short stint of spring like weather with warm temperature, ice EVERYWHERE (hence a few no school days), and lots of sunshine. I loved it! Especially the sun. Made me feel GOOD, anticipation for spring...I pinned a tonne of gardening things on Pinterest and bought some cool planters....
Today though....its snowing. And that is okay. It's doing what January is supposed to do. I am thankful for the sunshine we had though.
So to warm myself on day such as today I am making some tea. Ginger Tea....with pineapple and honey. Comfort in a cup. I won't go into all the benefits of ginger...but I do love that it calms my tummy as I sip it as well as just helping calm ME. So maybe today you could use some tea....
What you Need:
sliced fresh ginger (peeled) about 2 inches.
1-2 wedges of pineapple
1 tsp of honey
1 1/2 cups of boiling water
What you Do:
1. Peel and slice about 2 inches of fresh ginger. Coarsely chop. Coarsely chop pineapple wedge.
2. In your favorite mug combine ginger, pineapple, honey and water. Steep for 8 minutes.
3. Strain solids and enjoy tea.
*** If you have a large loose tea infuser you can use this to steep the tea as well.
