Summer Culottes



You know those days when you feel like you have nothing funny or interesting to say? 

This is one of those days. 

My brain is working so slowly this morning and all I can manage are two coherent thoughts: the comfort levels of these culottes are amazing and the fact that it's Friday again and how irritating it is that fall clothes are coming in already --  It's the beginning of the hottest month of the summer! 

So on that note, I wish you a wonderful day and weekend that's full of wit, charm and coherency ;)

Chai Milkshakes



I never used to be much of a chai fan until A started drinking it frequently during winter. He adds milk and sugar and it turns into a decadent drink to sip on while it's cold outside. This summer we were at our favorite local cafe when we noticed that chai milkshakes were on the menu. My curiosity was piqued and so we came home that evening and I whipped up my first attempt which was met with "mmm" and "so good." Admittedly, it was pretty successful. I've made it a few times since with one botched attempt (too much spice) and finally perfected it into today's recipe.

If you love chai, you'll enjoy this summery version of your winter favorite. Be sure to add more ice cream if you prefer thicker milkshakes!

Happy Thursday and thanks for reading!

CHAI MILKSHAKES RECIPE
Yield: ~ 2 large shakes

INGREDIENTS
1 c milk
2 bags of Chai tea
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 c + vanilla ice cream


DIRECTIONS
In a small saucepan, combine milk and spices. Place tea bags in the saucepan and hold by the string/tag (be very careful to not allow the string and tags to touch the stove as they can easily catch on fire). Bring to a slight boil, remove from heat and pour into a bowl. Place tea bags in the bowl and steep for 5 minutes, occasionally pressing on tea bags. After 5 minutes, remove tea bags and cool completely.**

In a blender, combine chai mixture (Do not add the spice that has settled on the bottom) and vanilla ice cream and blend until completely incorporated. Add more ice cream if a thicker shake is desired. 

**An ice bath may be used for quicker cooling.
