I want to eat Meyer Lemon Souffle in a charming Tiffany blue cup! I do love lemon souffles and the presentation is lovely.
Some amazing photos of five cliff top towns. Been to one, Santorini, which really was nice (if mega-touristy). Would love to see the others as well...
I've picked up a couple of new podcasts. One of them is on travel, and listening to it makes me want to jump in a plane right now. Just heard guides to Paris and Rome, an amusing one on Scotland and Wales (apparently Cardiff is an ugly town?), and a more general one on food. I priced a plane ticket on a travel site, it'd cost about $1400 to fly over in October (picked a random non-summer month). *sighs* Compared to $600 and eight hours to Japan, Europe is too distant and expensive. No wonder I keep choosing to go to Japan all the time instead of exploring new places. :P
I was wandering around the world of tea blogs and tried a different method for making iced tea using only ice and tea leaves from here. I didn't find it particularly amazing, but maybe the problem was that I used crappy leaves?
I am currently addicted to oolong tea. For years I hated the taste, but recently I've grown to love it. I love it cold and hot, and I really need to find a good (and not too expensive) source of leaves to make my own. I've been buying big bottles on sale since the bottled stuff tastes good, but I know it's insanely expensive when compared to making my own.
