Everyday Things

Jules over at Everyday Mommy has a new endeavor, a weekly topic on everyday things. Read more about it here.

Today's Everyday thing is a take off on Jules' herself. I choose my glass of Southern Sweet Tea. That is my coffee. After years of practice I have gotten the technique down to perfection, at least at my own house. When ever I make tea elsewhere it hardly ever tastes right.

For me and my house it goes like this.
  1. Take a glass measuring cup, Fill 1/2 with water.
  2. Microwave until boiling.
  3. Take out. Insert 2 family size tea bags. Add sugar (correct ratio is 1/3 c of sugar per quart of finished tea)
  4. Allow to sit until a dark brown.
  5. Take out tea bags, stir sugar until disolved
  6. Pour into pitcher. Add water until full.
  7. Pour over glass of ice.
  8. Enjoy!! The first glass is ALWAYS the best!

We drink our tea plain (Gasp!) But having tea in the fridge is a good feeling:)
