Reaping the benefit of cooking for the week on the weekend before. Monday's meal was a tasty quinoa salad and leftover mac & cheese. I'm forcing myself to wait a week before I make the m&c again.

TV watching is so much more productive this way.

My order from Halcyon Tea finally arrived, delayed a bit by Blizzardopolis 2011. I was completely out of Masala Chai (perfect for snowy days) so it was approaching crisis point. I purchased a couple of tea canisters to help me retrieve some counter space from the avalanche of silver bags of tea I've got going on in my kitchen. Also, a second hook handled strainer. The great thing about tea is (for the most part) you can get more than one (and sometimes as many as six) steepings out of one dose of tea leaves. Now I don't have to juggle caffeinated and caffeine-free teas in and out of the single tea strainer I had.

My new favorite morning tea, is the fun to say Tung Ting oolong. It's like a little cup of spring.

Found myself at Chicago Shakespeare Theater when a friend couldn't use her ticket. Was I lucky to see this outstanding production of As You Like It. I understood nearly all of it (seriously, Shakespeare is not my thing) and enjoyed it from start to finish. The acting was great, especially by the two female leads, and I loved the production design. And with the woodland setting, it was the perfect play to see in the heart of winter.
