Food on Fridays: Tea Station


(smaller button below)

Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—to illustrate, you can cite your favorite tea (or coffee, if you must) or link to a YouTube video of your son singing “I Like Apples and Bananas.”My point is that the Food on Fridays parameters are not at all narrow. Think of it as a virtual pitch-in where you can sample what everyone brings and have a great time.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or the new smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post and join us through Mr. Linky.Here’s a Mr. Linky tutorial:

Write up a post, publish, then return here and click on Mr. Linky below. A screen will pop up where you can type in your blog name and paste in the url to your own Food on Fridays post (give us the exact link to your Food on Fridays page, not just the link to your blog).You can also visit other people’s posts by clicking on Mr. Linky and then clicking participants’ names–you should be taken straight to their posts.Please note: I return when possible during the day and update this post by hand to include a list of the links provided via Mr. Linky. If I can’t get to the computer to do so, you may access them all by clicking on the Mister Linky logo.

Food on Fridays with Ann

For Christmas, my son bought me a Vincent Van Gogh crock from Goodwill. I decided to store my all-time favorite tea in it—PG Tips.

I drink several cups of PG Tips each morning, so the crock sits next to the electric tea kettle alongside a vintage blue-green teapot (a Christmas gift from my mom) and the coincidentally matching sugar & creamer set (a Christmas gift from one of my daughters).

My tea station is an effective set-up for this bleary-eyed mom who stumbles around in the kitchen each morning, attempting, slowly, to wake up.
