This morning I asked Mollie what she wanted to drink with her breakfast. She gave it some thought and said, "I would like.... um.... ahem.... I think....um.... I want a big girl drink. Tea, yeah, I want tea!"
Now we're not talking Southern sweet tea. In our house "tea" is piping hot, British-style. You know, the stuff they threw into Boston Harbor.
When I was little, my grandma always made "hocus pocus tea"- regular tea with sugar and lots of milk. My cousin Katie and I would drink it with her out of these tiny little teacups and it was so much fun. So, Mollie and I may have a little afternoon tea today, hocus-pocus style.
