I spluged (again)

I bought tea.

I figure, I drink a  liter or two every single day, it should at least be quality stuff.

So I mostly have black teas, so I went for green. I told the lady that  wanted one that costs around 10€ for 100 grams (yes, that is splurging for me!)

I bought kukicha tea, because it filled other requirements, such as that it goes well with sugar, and without any additional flavours etc added.

“”Also known as Twig Tea, Kukicha Green Tea is a Japanese tea prepared from the stems and stalks of the tea shrub, Camellia sinensi. The twigs are pruned from the shrub, steamed and dried, and then aged and roasted.
Kukicha Green Tea is rich in many healthy properties that include minerals , Vitamin, Theanine, Catechins (polyphenols), Flavonoids, and Amino Acids.

Kukicha Green Tea is rich in antioxidants which protect cell tissues from the damaging effects of oxygen thus aiding in achieving healthy skin. The catechin known as epigallocatechin (EGCG) contains 25-100 times more antioxidants than Vitamins C and E.””

I found the quotes  here. I shortened them, obviously.

I like it. It’s not strong, but I’ve only made it once,  and I strictly followed the “2 minute steeping time”, so…I’m having fun with it 🙂

When all you can be proud on are your straight teeth…

No degree, no job, no boyfriend, no licence, living at home, and most importantly, on no speaking terms with my BFF= not attending a HS reunion.

I am ashamed of myself. I am stonewalling all friends who contacted me if I’m coming or not, and I am even more ashamed.

I’ll just send a short”I’m sorry, but i will not come today” email to the organisatior on the day of the party, and apologise to the friends afterwards. That way, I don’t lie, and I am rather weird than a failure.

This is the best I can come up with. I can’t face them. I can’t.

The lions breed book 3 and 4; a review //4

Lora Leigh: Megan’s mark (book 7)  7/10 and Harmony’s way (book 8) 9/10!

Megan’s mark; first time in the series a heroine wasn’t a virgin/raped/artificially impregnated and wasn’t smoothly shaven/waxed. Wow. Guess how doing anal is called? “His co’k breached the virgin portal“.

I’ll have to document this more often, they are borderline hilarious and uncomfortable. She has to promise to follow, but “he is not suppose to coddle her“. Jeeez, so much about equality…But lookey here; “He won’t take away her freedom, he just needs to know her weaknesses, otherwise there will be no trust between them as partners“. So generous. They are partners, as long as he leads.

Story of Megan, a cop, and Braden. She is an empath, and her fathers best friend, a senator, wants to capture her.

We meet Jonas Wyat; he thought he loved a woman, Aimee, but she already had a mate; he hadn’t known it.

Oh, this is happening 10 years after Calan and Merry.

 

Harmony’s way;Harmony is Jonas’s sister. Code name Death. Lance is Megan’s cousin, a sheriff. He understands her, he tells her in the beginning that he wants her to come to him, let’s her feel his heat for her, he doesn’t force her. In other books, this happens more towards the end of the books, I really liked that it happens in the beginning here. And I love how she has all those lotions and potions, how even thow she is an assassin, that doesn’t mean she is not feminine. And when she is frustrated, she goes for ice cream. Gotta love it.

OMG now I know why I like this book so much!! It’s a different publisher!!

Now I understand what a good editor can do.

The cherry pie story

So, I made a cherry pie crumble!

This is the basic recipe, I changed it some…

I don’t have potato starch, or guar gum, or almond flour; so I added more corn starch and tapioca instead of almond.

So, the dough did not work. At all. I basically had to take small pieces of dough and put it in the pie pan and then press together so they formed the bottom – like pieces of puzzle. Afterwards, it did crumble some, but oh well, nothing major.

I added some rhubarb, just because we have it, and didn’t have lime, but I like the filling just fine. I also didn’t add the oats in the crumble, again, I don’t miss it – but I am no pie expert at all.

So – the pie dough remains a mystery to me – yet I like this pie just fine! 🙂

Some wishes do come true!

It is raining, and even if it stops now, it will still be “bad weather”, like I wished and hoped  for!

Let there be rain

Oh please please please, let it rain tomorrow. Strongly. The whole afternoon and the evening and night! Ok, it can drizzle, I’ll be happy with that. Just let it be BAD WEATHER, please please please!!!

Surprise, surprise…

I just found out Zsadist and Bellla have a short story! ! ! !!

Everybody know I’m in love with Lower awakened, so this is like…heaven! ! ! !

Omg…

See, I am a masochist in some ways, I can have a book and just wait and wait till I read it, because i am prolonging teh pleasure that way…So i am leaving of the last book in the series untill I’ll be desperate for it.

But this…This I can not wait!! I am somehow not descriptive enough in my excitement over it, but no words can do it justice! More Zsadist and Bella…Is really an awesome surprise!!
