I have discovered that I can make tea in the microwave; I put Splenda, Tea bag, and the hottest water I can ge from the tap, in a microwaveable glass cup (so I can see how it's doing), and zap it for a minute and a half for 12oz.  More, or cooler, water takes a little longer.  At first I was afraid the staples in the tea bags would make sparks, so I mostly used Tetley Tea, but I guess the staples in Stash and Bigelow are too small to affect the microwaves, so I've been doing chai and cinnamon tea, too.

Best drink on a cold day!

That chai french vanilla. Very good with a teaspoon of dark honey, as Daniel suggestion.
I tried the chamomile earlier but I didn't boil the water so it was far to weak to suit me. I'll remember next time.

Thanks Daniel, Patricia. Please call me Kathy if you like. I went out and bought both chamomile and black chain. Now I'm going to drink some ;)

mildly not moldly

k.h., I make a lot of use of the chai tea. Store brand, Stash, and some other brands are good. The essential oils of cinnamon and clove with black tea are moldly anesthetic. I use a spoon of local unpasteurized raw honey which I think tastes very good and is slso more soothing than Sue Bee.

I just had mac & cheese for breakfast.  Delicious.  Added a couple of eggs, but was too lazy to add vegetables.

I think my "comfort food for the day" will be mac and cheese. I toss in broccoli, maybe some sausage.

Thanks Patricia.  Too bad it's a 2,400+ mile drive for me.

Well, the barley soup/stew came out great, even if I do say so myself. Wonderful meal for a cold winter's evening. Only problem (a major one) is the oven on my stove gave out, so I couldn't make any bread. Another expense I don't need!!!! AAAAGGHHHH!!!!!!

Comment by sk8eycat on January 11, 2015 at 1:39pm

Randall, just cook a cup or two of barley separately...in broth, preferably....then add it to the soup pot when the beans, or whatever,  are done.

I've done that for more years than I can count, and it works fine.
