Black Bread

September 12

I am not sure if I have mentioned it before, but I get major food envy. This is especially a problem when we are out to eat and I can’t decide what to order.

I realize I am being slightly over-dramatic but sometimes I get a little crazy, and it’s ok. A couple of weeks ago when we were out for brunch with some friends, I was agonizing over whether to get eggs and toast or peach waffles.

Roasted Plum and Black Tea Popsicles

Hopefully I can get in the popsicle groove and find some addictive ones that will stock my freezer in all seasons. This seems like a good start since  I “had to” eat them really quickly because I wanted to make a couple of other popsicle recipes before I take off for a few weeks, and I didn’t get sick of them even though I ate all six (on my own, my boyfriend is not a fan of the taste of tea) in a couple of days.
