Honey & Hurraw

So, I ran out of honey.

Since it’s the season of yogurt-for-breakfast (in contrast to the other half of the year, which is oatmeal-for-breakfast season), I needed to pick up more honey asap. I like plain greek yogurt with honey and Susan Gibbs inspired granola best!

(I also needed to get the last dregs of honey out of the empty jar, and found this clever and tasty solution – which is GENIUS!)

So, I popped over to my local small grocer and picked up some of my favourite: Babe’s Honey! I have to say, although I don’t always buy locally produced food, I do try to… and when I tried local honey, the taste difference was SO HUGE that I haven’t bought mass produced honey since.

I also picked up some new lip balm! After reading about Hurraw balm on another excellent and local-to-me knitting blog, I was totally intrigued. I had to try it! I chose the Earl Grey tea flavour; how could I not?!

Growing up, I thought Earl Grey was just “regular” tea – it’s all my mom ever drank or had in the house. I still remember ordering tea in a restaurant as a semi-adult teenage person, and being stunned when Orange Pekoe was what came.

Anywho! I really wanted to try the Grapefruit flavour of Hurraw too, it smelledĀ amazing. I think it might be coming home with me next time!
