This rather abstract photo is nothing more than some honey in the bottom of a coffee cup. How did it come about? Well to begin with, I like vanilla. I was at the grocery store looking for some pomegranate flavored herbal tea. I had some at my mother's house one day and was telling the Better Half about it. I thought she might like it. The store I was at was all out of the pomegranate flavors but a box of CELESTIAL SEASONINGS Sleepytime Vanilla Herb Tea caught my eye so I bought a box.
As I said, I like vanilla. So I got home and brewed a couple of cups. One for me, one for the BH. She didn't like it. Point blank, it simply didn't taste good to her. I, on the other hand, thought it was OK, but very weak. The flavor was too subdued, too mild. I'm the type of guy that likes black coffee, unsweetened ice tea, grapefruit juice, beer, dry red wines. Get what I am saying?
Well, I am going to drink the whole box eventually, but I decided i had to perk it up some. So, I poured some hone into a cup along with an 1/8th teaspoon of vanilla extract. Well, when I did that, what I saw in the bottom of the cup is what you see in today's photograph. It looked interesting to me. So I snapped it. There you have it. Photographing my food again.
