Dried Sage and Red Shiso Microgreens
I made some tea with sage from last year's flora.  It looked good enough to shoot, as well as drink.  The plant is red shiso is from Koppertcress,  an online store which carries a wide variety of unique microgreens and sprouts.  The shiso looks too beautiful to eat, so I will keep it on my windowsill  until I can see this year's spring foliage again.

Waking up to my cup of morning Joe

Coffee the Pour Over Method

I love my morning coffee.  The pour method is one of my favorite brewing techniques, because
of the enhanced flavor.  This brew is from Gilles Coffee, a roaster in Brooklyn, NYC, which carries
a wide variety of organic blends you can buy online.
