Recipe: Bacon Ice tea

Hey everyone!

So now that I have some free time, I have come up with this new recipe!

Now I call it bacon ice tea, but it really has nothing to do with bacon, just a name! This recipe was made up after I had some ice tea at a restaurant, and it was gross! Way to sweet, and the tea tasted like it came from some pre-made powder (if that’s even possible!). It only takes a few minutes to make and its cheaper than buying it at the store!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp loose leaf earl grey tea
  • 2 tbsp loose leaf oolong black tea
  • 5 mint leaves torn in half
  • water

Preparations:

Loose leaf tea pot

3 liter juice container

Step 1:

Boil enough water to fill the teapot, make sure the water is boiling since black tea requires very high temperatures to steep properly.

Step 2:

Steep tea in the loose leaf tea pot for 8-10 minutes

Step 3:

Mix all the ingredients together in the juice container and chill until cooled.

Step 4:

Enjoy!

Why I Hate Eating Out!

Hey everyone!

So its time for the post about why I hate eating out so much! This dislike for eating out at restaurants first started in my first year of college in 2009. When I was younger I really enjoyed going out for dinner, but as I got older and learned how to cook for myself, I really started to appreciate food. Once I started to appreciate food I realized how many restaurants make and serve bad food. Some restaurants are just mediocre, others are just downright gross, but very few do the food justice.

When I get a bad meal, it ruins my day, but so many times I go out to a restaurant expecting to get a good meal, something that I can’t make at home. But when the meal comes and the food is slimy, or too spicy, not cooked or just plain ugly, it just enforces why I don’t really like going out to restaurants! For some reason, I still go out for dinner, I think I do this because I really want to find another great place to eat, but it has yet to happen, and at least in Victoria, I don’t think it ever will.

Now after reading this you may think that I’m some kind of restaurant hater! But im not! I am just very picky when it comes to me paying somebody else to make my food. If they can’t make food taste better than I can, they shouldn’t be serving food to people! But after many years of trying different restaurants, I have found 4 or 5 that I return too regularly. Now I won’t tell you what restaurants these are, and I will never review them, they are too special to try to critique the food, or the service. To me they should just be enjoyed, not judged.

Go out and find your favorite place to eat, It may take some time, and a bunch of bad meals in between, but you will always enjoy going back to them with your friends and family! Don’t share them with to many people, keep it to your self! This is the one thing you should be selfish about!

Thanks for reading everybody! I hope you enjoyed this, and I really want to hear about your worst food experience, and your best! Oh and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog!
