Sugar In My Soup


Denise had evoked the delicate fragrance and taste of Jasmine tea to the forefront of my senses earlier this week. I had a craving.

Imagine my delight when I walked into CoffeeFusion tonight, and I-Spied Jasmine Tea prominently displayed on the menu board. WOOHoo! :)

Jodi walked in about the time I took my fist sip of the aromatic brew. My every tastebud stood alert to capture the sheer melodic liquid . . .

and then I grimaced.

Yes. I said I grimaced.

Stunned.

Stopped dead in my taste-budial tracks.

It was filled with a syrup-y sugar that made my head swim.

EEEEwwww!

I tried to take it back.

It appears that CoffeeFusion only serves pre-medicated-with-twenty-times-more-than-the-natural-body-requires-sugar-content-teas.

Sigh.

Jodi liked it.

So, I returned home to open a can of Vegetable Soup.


I asked Gil if he wanted a bowl.

He said no.

I ate out of the sauce-pot.

Gil asked me if he could have a taste.

I think his left eye will heal from the damage done by the emergent talon that suddenly protruded from my right hand and swatted him. :)

Rule #1: Do not add sugar to the Jasmine Tea.

Rule #2: Do not take soup from the Hungry Pregnant Jasmine Tea Deprived woman across the table from you.

You are liable to get sugar in your soup.

Meanwhile... I was being beautified at Chuck Kelly's (bankruptcy!) and treated myself to a Santa Fe Chicken panini and the BEST Chai Latte ever at Nezaty's Cafe.

Nice job protecting your soup!
