Tea for today is a MateVana/Roobis Chai blend from Teavana. I can never get the tea to taste the same way that it does in ths store, drats! I think I need to start putting more tea in (?) I played around with the sugar amount today and it didn’t seem to make a difference, so I think I’ll try making it more concentrated. Though, this already seemed like there were too many tea leaves and not enough tea! Oh, I didn’t snap a picture pre-drinking, so this is my tumbler post-drinking. I drank two of these and I’m not really more awake (supposed to be the same amount of caffeine as coffee!)
This bento was made using leftovers from a recent dinner at Ray’s the Steaks. Pictured above, in a Mr. Bento (sans 1 container) is macaroni and cheese mixed with peas and unsweetened applesauce. Something about the combo of savory and sweet just gets me! I don’t know when I started eating this, but I think it probably started as a kid where all these things got mixed up on a plate together by accident and I liked it better that way! Sides are creamed spinach and mashed potatoes. I’d never had creamed spinach before–it’s okay enough.
