Sometimes We Just Need A Treat!!

I had a fun day yesterday. It was a cold rainy day so I decided to stay in and do some puttzing around the house.


I cranked up the Christmas music, and I proceeded to sort all the gifts I have purchased, and started wrapping and humming♫♪♫♪!!

I had the best day ever. Of course I did get a bit melancholy because this is the first year one of my son’s won’t be here, but I tried to focus on the good time his family will have getting a big box from the Big Brown Truck!!! I know I just love when that guy pulls up in front of my house.

Since I stayed pretty busy I tried to  fit in a couple of breaks and have a treat!!

I am going to highly recommend this treat to YOU, all of my readers. It is also something I like to have on hand for Holiday drop-ins!!!

I have always kept a supply of Trader Joe’s almond mini biscotti and enjoyed it immensely, but this by far surpasses  the almond biscotti.
If you have not had this before you must try it……….


Another plus it is only 80 calories, pretty good for a sweet treat.

One of these biscotti, and your favorite cup of tea or coffee =Love in a cup!

Speaking of tea I have two teas that I love to drink in the winter……


This tea has a spice, vanilla, citrus flavor. There is something about the addition of the vanilla that just makes this a wonderful mellow cup of tea with just hints of spice and citrus.

Peet’s only carries it this time of year so you can bet your bottom dollar I will be buying several boxes to last all winter. 

It makes a wonderful hostess gift too. In fact that is how I got my first box. A dear friend brought it tied up in a beautiful coppery brown satin ribbon. Boy, was it pretty on that blue box.

The other tea that I have been drinking this winter is Stash’s………..

Lemon-Ginger Tea

This tea has a strong ginger flavor so if you don’t like ginger you would not like this tea. I love ginger and lemon so it is a perfect mix for this girl. I squeeze a bit more lemon and a spoonful of honey and it is a perfect cup of tea.

So there you have it!!! This is what I treat myself with on a cold and rainy afternoon, with the fireplace lit, and Christmas music in the background.

Do you all have some fun little treats that you like to keep around for yourself and drop-in guest? Do share, we can always use more ideas in blogland!!

Whatever you are doing by adding a
biscotti and a cup of special tea!
