Earl Grey Hot Toddy #FoodieExtravaganza


Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays or cook and bake together with the same ingredient or theme each month.

Posting day for #FoodieExtravaganza is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you! If you're a spectator looking for delicious tid-bits check out our Foodie Extravaganza Pinterest Board!

This month, and to kick off our 2021 series, I am hosting this month's #FoodieExtravaganza. I shared with the group: "January is National Hot Tea Month. Let's share recipes for tea drinks, something you would serve at a tea party, or anything that uses hot tea for cooking (tea-poached fish, anyone?!). This topic is wide open! Be creative." 

Here's the hot tea celebration line-up...

Ingredients makes 2 drinks
  • 2 Tablespoons Earl Grey tea loose leaf tea
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 3 ounces whisky or bourbon, divided
  • freshly squeezed juice from 2 organic lemons (I used Meyer lemons)
  • 2 Tablespoons honey (less if you prefer it less sweet)
  • also needed: tea pot with strainer

Procedure 

Put the water in a kettle or saucepan and bring to a boil. Place tea in a mesh strainer and pour water over the leaves. Let tea steep for about 3-5 minutes.

In the bottom of your serving cups, place whisky or bourbon, honey, and lemon juice. Pour in the hot, steeped tea and stir to combine completely and dissolve the honey.


Serve hot.

Next month, Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm is hosting us as we explore dishes that start with a can. Stay tuned...

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
