WIAW- a frosty day

Monday morning was very frosty indeed.

On Sunday afternoon the pond was still frozen solid, so it was clear it would be a heavy frost- I think everything looks so pretty when it is covered in white- even the cars!

Anyway, welcome to another WIAW and head over to Peas and Crayons if you fancy having a nose at what other people are eating.

So I went for a massive mug of peppermint tea to warm me up.

Breakfast– muesli, apple, soya milk, peppermint tea.

I did brave a little walk outside, and was hungry for my lunch after that- partly from the cold I think.


Toasted sourdough with mixed nut butter and blackcurrant spread, grapes, and satsumas. That sourdough was sooooooo good- we had some at the weekend but I think it was even better toasted. If I lived in San Francisco I would visit Boudins every day.


A few chocolate pecans and a tea-pigs latte.

Can you see the heart shape? I will get better! Love the Aerolatte for the froth!


Not sure what it was! It was from the freezer and it was not labelled (I normally label everything)- it seemed to be giant cous cous, black eye beans, carrots, sweet potato, peppers, tomatoes… It was tasty anyway. With rocket and nutritional yeast.


A provamel caramel pot that tastes just like those little tubs of creme caramel you can get with all the yoghurts. Yum. πŸ™‚

And look what picture got emailed to me today:

Hello? Is It Tea You’re Looking For?

From here. I do find the actual video rather funny (especially when he phones the girl), plus I love silly puns, and I love tea!

I think I had about 5 cups of tea that day- peppermint, vanilla rooibos, raspberry, peach, spiced winter…. I needed it to stay warm.

What is your favourite warm drink?

  1. Haha! That teapot is HILARIOUS!
    Ohmygosh those chocolate pecans look amazing! I need some of those in my life!

    My fave hot drink is either normal (English breakfast) tea or hot chocolate! I love coffee but I like it more for it’s caffeine than taste!

  2. My ‘default’ tea has always been a nice cup of earl grey but when the weather is cold like this I like to add in some fruit and herbal teas. I could drink earl grey and coffee all day long but I don’t like the thought of all that caffiene and having to add milk every time. I also love spiced teas like chai, and your vanilla rooibos sounds nice too.

  3. Glad you all liked the teapot πŸ™‚ Made me chuckle too.
    Bronagh- Waitrose do the vanilla rooibos tea (their “Love life” range or something)- think it was 99- for 20 or something. It is tasty too.

  4. Ha ha to the teapot! πŸ™‚

    I love all your eats – museli, sourdough, peppermint tea… looks like a good day of eats to me! πŸ™‚

    I like minty teas and fruity ones too. TBH, I’m not picky with tea at all. I’ll drink pretty much anything. I am partial to a good old proper tea with milk as well. That’s probably my favourite warming tea!

  5. Oh God, the tea thing made me wince and cringe a little in the best possible way – I do love a good pun.

    Monday was bloomin freezing up here too – my toes nearly dropped off when I was out on my bike for a bit.

    I love to drink cocoa, but I really shouldn’t get through so much of it – I put loads of rice milk and stevia in it and I probably drink an entire meal’s worth of calories in cocoa every day :/


  6. Haha I love that teapot! My favourite hot drink has to be some sort of herbal tea. I really like peppermint and at the moment I am loving Clipper orange and coconut tea.
    I like the sound of chocolate pecans – anything by Montezuma is usually delicious.

  7. I love the sound of orange and coconut tea- will have to look out for that one. I have some mandarin and ginger tea which is lovely.
    The pecans came from the Montezuma’s online shop- I went to look, must have signed up for an email, and didn’t order anything, then a bit later they sent me an email saying they noticed I visited the site but didn’t buy anything, so sent me a 10% off voucher. Well, it was rude not to use it surely!
