let's start with saturday. let the snow storm continue. i use the term "storm" very lightly. it was not windy, but boy did it snow. i started off my day with a simple fruit salad of dragon fruit, kiwi and cara cara orange. those colours though!
after breakfast came the star of the show. there is nothing i love more than a hot cup of chai on a cold, winter day.
my go-to chai recipe is made with whole spices and fresh ginger and has such a rich flavour. it is a chai tea concentrate so you only have to add 1/4 cup or so to each cup. i sweeten mine with local honey already flavoured with nutmeg and cinnamon. this just makes it extra yummy. thank you the prairie homestead for a recipe i go back to time and time again. i added some steamed milk and sprinkled cinnamon and grated nutmeg and orange zest on top.
after a nice, hot mug of chai, my mom, bri, harley (my pup) and i ventured out into the trails for a snow shoeing adventure.
it was an absolutely perfect afternoon spent with three of my favourite people. harley is pretty much a person. at least we think he is.
