Then, if one package wasn't enough, my coworkers ordered me a box of vegan goodies from Pangea for my birthday. They sent vegan jerky, peanut butter cups, Caesar salad dressing, organic croutons, marshmallows, and sprinkles. I used the salad dressing on my salad last night and it was delicious.
In spinning news I now have 4 skeins of handspun complete (and more plyed yarn that needs to be set.) I am going to try spinning the ingeo fiber I have this weekend; I have been saving it since I wanted to feel pretty confident in my spinning before I attempted using the expensive stuff. I will post the results, good or bad.
In honor of the cold weather I am going to do something that I haven't done in quite awhile, I am going to post a recipe. Chai tea is my favorite thing in the world to drink when it is cold outside so here is the recipe that I use when I am on the go.
Warm Winter Chai
1 teabag of your favorite chai teaSquirt the agave nectar in the bottom of a large coffee cup. Then fill the mug 3/4 of the way full with very hot water. Add the teabag and let seep for 3-4 minutes. Remove the teabag and fill the rest of the mug with Vanilla soymilk. Stir and enjoy.
1/3 cup Vanilla silk
1 Tbls. Raw Agave Nectar
Why agave? In my opinion, agave nectar is the best thing to happen to tea since the teabag. While it has a very similar flavor to honey, it is thinner so it dissolves more readily in hot and cold liquids and it never crystallizes. The fact that it was never spit out of a bee's mouth is just an added bonus.
