Lemon Ginger Mint Tea

My husband brought home a handful of mint and a very large ginger root last night from the grocery store.  On this beautiful, sunny late-fall day, I thought: what could be better than some tea?  Since I can’t have caffeine, I made a lovely mint tea.

Lemon Ginger Mint Tea Recipe:

2 Cups water

4 sprigs mint leaves

1 lemon

1″ ginger root, peeled and sliced

honey to taste

In a saucepan, boil the water. Remove saucepan from heat. Add mint, ginger, and lemon and let steep for about 5 minutes. Add honey to taste, and enjoy!

Thanksgiving Feast

This Thanksgiving is one of many firsts:

  • First time cooking a full holiday meal
  • First Thanksgiving with my In-Laws
  • First gluten free Thanksgiving

I’m praying that I don’t get stressed out, don’t take on too much, and let other people help.  Here’s the menu.  Hopefully I’ll post some pictures this weekend.

Roast Turkey (trying to figure out if I should dry brine it first…)

Cornbread Dressing

Roasted Asparagus

Spinach and Pomegranate Salad

Sweet Potato Casserole

Curried Fruit

Cranberry Apple Delight (a crisp-like side dish)

Pumpkin Pie

Mulled White Wine

Apple Cider

I think there’s enough vegetables in the menu, but I’m not sure…
