Lamb Bacon, Poached Egg, and Chipotle Hollandaise. This sounded much better than it was. The johnnycake was too thick, and very dry. The lamb bacon was was miniscule, and did not contribute to the dish. The albeit delicious chipotle hollandaise could not not even pull the dish together.

“The raw leaves are sun-wilted and then bruised, which exposes their juices to the air, so the leaves oxidise and start to turn brown like a cut fruit. They are allowed to oxidise only partially, giving them a rich, floral flavour. The tea is then dried fully; locking in the rich flavors that oolong tea is known to offer. Oolong’s unique drying process creates a tea that has many metabolic stimulating attributes.” [Source]
Tea has now replaced coffee and espresso in my diet. My favorite variety happens to be the Golden Oolong made by Teas’ Tea. I order it from Amazon via Amazon Prime, and it ends up being roughly $2.00 per bottle delivered. Equal to the cost of a cup of coffee, half the cost of an espresso drink.
Reasons I like Golden Oolong:
Smooth taste, not bitter
1/3 the caffeine in coffee
Amazon ships boxes of Golden Oolong in packs of 12 bottles. Shipping is free if you have Amazon Prime, and free if your order is $25 or over. I’m not sure how long they can afford to keep shipping 15lb boxes of tea, but until they raise the price, I will keep ordering.
Just received a coupon to try oatmeal at Starbucks. Has the world come full circle? I saw something about this in one of the stores, and now I guess I’ll have to try it. If it’s better than the Vivano smoothie, that will not be saying much.
Possibilities for Starbucks oatmeal should include:
Adding a shot of espresso to your oatmeal
Making the Barista crumble up one of the baked goods to top your Oatmeal
Adding a shot of the chocolate syrup to the oatmeal
