Things I love Thursday - - 1/15/09

Insert picture of my tea glass here but I couldn't get it to send to my computer.. I might add it later!!

One my of my favorite things in the whole world is: Sweet Tea!!!

I know this is something that most northerners don't understand but I live on sweet tea. I even sweeten mine with Sweet-N-Low so that I don't have to worry about it making me gain (more) weight.

Sweet Tea is yummy and cold and quenches your thirst much better than cokes and you know that water has no taste!!

Here is how I make sweet tea:

Take your coffee pot and add two family sized tea bags to your basket. Then fill it up with about 12 cups of water. After the coffee pot is done take the tea in the pot and pour it into a one gallon jug. Add 12 packets of Sweet-N-Low and then fill the jug up the rest of the way with water. Store in the fridge until cold. You can drink it with ice before it gets cold but it will not taste as good. ENJOY!!

I'm going to make me some now! Yum!!

As a northerner I haven't ever had sweet tea. But I keep hearing about it so much it makes me feel like I must seriously be missing out. Now that I have a recipe I might have to give it a try next summer
