An anniversary surprise from my Beloved Enabler. I love a good apple tea, and I wondered if the fruit might be overpowered by the rooibos. Happy surprise—it’s a nice pairing. Though I didn’t see any apple bits as large as the ones in the picture, it’s in there somewhere—very fresh and cidery. Not tart like a Granny Smith; more like a Fuji or fresh Red Delicious.
Family needs took us to Haysville, Kansas, which is not what we’d recommend for an anniversary getaway; however, on the way home, we grabbed a pizza from a favorite local establishment and ate it al fresco at a rest stop picnic table near Beaumont, on a blissfully silent little hillock in the Flint Hills. You could see 20 miles in every direction and we watched dragonflies do touch-and-go’s among the Black-eyed Susans. Sometimes it doesn’t have to be where you are. Sometimes it’s just who you’re with.
