We're in the waiting game. Just waiting for baby. I think all the loose ends are tied up, and now we just sit and wait. And try not to wilt in the heat. Seriously, this is absolutely awful weather! I never thought June in Michigan could be this icky. But oh, wow, is it icky. And it doesn't look like it's going to let up any time soon.
I thank God multiple times a day for this wonderful house with air conditioning! Being two days away from having this baby, I am so thankful that God knows what we need before we need it!
But with this heat, I thought I would pass on this fruit ice tea creation that I have been downing by the half gallons.
First, find a container. I am a bit partial to my glass half gallon milk jug. And then you need some black tea and whatever fruit flavor herbal tea you want. I have used raspberry and orange. For the half gallon I use 8 normal decaffinated black tea bags and 2 herbal bags.
Then, bring to boil enough water to fill your half gallon container 2/3 full. Really, just eyeball this. When it reaches a boil, take it off the heat and add your tea bags. Let them steep until it seems right to you. Oh, and I do like my tea a bit on the sweet side. To the half gallon, I add 1/3 cup of sugar.
Pour the tea into your container, top it off with cold water, put it in the fridge to cool off and then enjoy with a lot of ice!
