Earth Hour 2010

Just a very quick post as we prepare to turn off our lights (and power points) for Earth Hour.

I don't think I need to talk about what Earth Hour is about. What I want to do is show my support and add my voice to the many others participating.
So, how many others are joining in for Earth Hour and what are you doing in that time?
We are going to sit by candle light and chat. Things have been super busy this week and it will be nice spending time together.

For more information, check out the Earth Hour web site.

Lemon Iced Tea

I have been experimenting with iced tea lately. I love the Lipton Lemon Iced Tea but I don't want to be drinking so many unnecessary ingredients. (Mainly too much sugar!)

Here is the recipe I am using at the moment:

4 tea bags
1 cup of boiling water
3 and a bit cups of room temperature water
1/2 tbsp honey
3 or 4 tsp lemon juice

  1. Steep the teabags in the boiling water for about 4 mins.
  2. Remove tea bags and stir in honey til dissolved.
  3. Add tea mixture to a 1L jug and add remaining water and lemon juice
  4. Chill tea and serve with lots of ice, a slice of lemon and some mint.
Easy! And a lot cheaper than the bottles I have been buying.
