Sunday afternoon tea

Digestive biscuits are so much more delicious than the name implies.

{I pretend I'm being healthy if I don't get the chocolate covered ones}

D and I managed to eat an entire roll of them over the weekend, which is why we don't keep them in the house more often. I wish I could restrain myself and just have two every afternoon with my tea. Sadly, restraint is not one of my strong suits.

I did do other things this weekend besides eat too many biscuits and drink tea. Namely, a bit of cooking, a bit of sewing and a lot of daydreaming. Projects and recipes coming up this week. I hope you all had lovely weekends.

  1. I've never been a big tea person, but I drink so much coffee I think it's time to make the leap.

    What flavor is your favorite?

  3. Digestives are absolutely my favourite.
    The best is to dip them in your tea.

    I could eat endless amounts of them.... Together with endless amounts of tea. In my perfect world I would. Without any weight gain.

  7. I hoard Digestives and hide them from my family. They are hard to come by in Nevada.

    cheers!

  9. That's so funny! I have an unreal attachment to Hob Nots--the one's with the blue top tube! I can't help but eat four at a time. They're gone so, so quickly!

  13. BRING BACK TEATIME! How did we inherit the puritan work ethic and not teatime? Lame. I say biscuits and tea for everybody, with no guilt at all!

  26. Oh, you've got the cup from Anthro. Why didn't I buy that (2 years ago?) before it sold out. Do you have more, and the teapot too....love all those seashell-like pieces. Sigh.

  29. Digestive biscuits remind me of my Nana in Scotland - she always has them around - and of course has the control to eat just one or two each tea-time - but I'm totally on the same page as you - if I knew where to buy them around here I would eat them all! Tea is my fav!
