School is in full swing for us, and in Southern California, that means hot afternoons and early evenings.
To keep my son from begging to go to Starbucks to slake his thirst, I have taken to making him special beverages and teas. If he sees something in the refrigerator with his name plastered on it, he is more likely to pour a glass when he gets off the bus, and not try to negotiate a trip to the money pit that is known as Starbucks.
This Strawberry Iced Tea is my latest lure.
See if you like it, too, and it serves the same purpose for you.
It is Secret Recipe Club  day today, and My Hobbie Lobbie is the blog I was assigned to investigate and cook from this month. Today is our “reveal day,” and I’m happy to have had the chance to immerse myself in it.
My Hobbie Lobbie is written by Trisha, a full-time baker and crafter who tracks her recipes and crochet patterns on the site. I’m not much of a crochet person or crafter, but if you are, definitely check out her index of crafts at the top of the page.
As I parsed her blog this past month, I found some treasures I plan to make:
- Garlic Paprika Chicken , because don’t we all need a smoky spicy new chicken recipe?
- Just give me a whole plate of her Onion Straws 
- I just want the Spinach-Stuffed Omelette  tomorrow morning for breakfast. Is that asking too much?
