Morning Cuppa Ritual


Thaya from Beatnik Bazaar tagged me to show my morning cuppa ritual: always, a double shot of foamy coffee in my Skinny laMinx mug, and at the moment, gooseberries from the garden. (Yes, dear neighbours, those aren't straggly neglected weeds in the front garden, they're my breakfast patch!)

I'm tagging Flower Press, Mrs Eliot Books, and Notions (who have all, incidentally, had really nice things to say about my new prints - thank you!) And.... Flower Press has some beautiful new fabric, Notions has gorgeous card/brooches to give away, and Mrs Eliot has some new tea towels coming soon, so go and have a look!

what does a gooseberry taste like?

I had to look those up, they don't look anything like the European gooseberry. They are called Cape Gooseberries and are actually in the tomatillo family. I read they taste like a tomato/pineapple blend, is that true? We grew European gooseberries in our garden when I was growing up! The bushes are thorny and it was difficult to pick the berries. The flavor is very unique, and I think appeals more to the adult palate (we liked the red currents better and another plus, no thorns!).

Coffee...hmmm. I stopped drinking coffee about two years ago, but I still LOVE the smell. I especially miss cappucino's. Coffee looks even better placed on lovely fabric!

I have seen those gooseberries as decoration in desserts in restaurants. But never tried.
Coffee...something I need to start ok!

That is a really lovely photo! I've never had a gooseberry, but now I'm intrigued.
