Because life is better when you are happy!

One of the awesome gifts I got for Christmas was from my very thoughtful mother-in-law.  Knowing my…arguably healthy addiction to tea, she found the perfect gift for me online.  A Teaposy!  The cool thing about it is that the tea comes in different flavor-combination buds that bloom into different “flowers” when seeped in hot water.  The tea that they use as a base for all of their teas is called Silver Needle Tea.  I’d never had it before, but I have to say, it’s a very tasty new find!  It’s more flowery tasting than say black or green tea.  Hehe.  Get it?  “Flowery”.  Anyway, I think it’s a fun, new-to-me thing to try to all of you tea lovers out there!

Below is a link to their website if you want to check it out!


This is a recipe that goes along with my first “2 Week Meal Plan”.  You should feel privileged.  This recipe has been handed down through my family and it is oh so good!


1 lb hamburger (I use turkey to make it a little healthier)

1 egg

1/2 c. chopped onion (chop a whole onion, freeze the rest for another day!)

1/4 c. flour

1/2 t. baking powder

1/4-1/2 c. milk (enough to make it thin)

1 t. salt

1/8 t. pepper

Thoroughly mix all ingredients.  Drop by small spoonfuls onto hot skillet and fry, turning once.
