It's the Little Things...

Ever done something on a whim, not really expecting anything to come from it?

Last week, I went online looking for a recipe for fruit tea. I couldn't find one I was happy with, because I have had the best and nothing else quite measures up. I tried a few, and they just weren't right. So I decided that, even though I figured the chances were small of actually getting a response, I'd go right to the source.

I emailed Legends.

I told them my situation, how I got addicted to their fantastic fruit tea while I was a student and living in Pulaski, and how much I missed it here in Scotland. Was there any way they would be willing to give me the recipe?

Wonder of wonders, I got a response... from Johnny Fleeman, the owner! And he very generously gave me the recipe! I can't tell you how surprised and thrilled I am. It made my day. Now I just need to empty a couple of milk jugs so I can brew me up some nectar of the gods.....

So if you are ever in middle Tennessee, stop in at Legends for some fruit tea! Thanks, Johnny! =)

Mean, and you aren't going to share it with us? That is very unthoughtful of you! I could use some good fruit tea, possible I could say it adds a bit more fruity nutrition to my already tea filled diet!

How cool is that! Small world! Enjoy it and finding milk jugs shouldn't be too hard for you. Keep warm and take care. Love you, Mom

That's so awesome. Yet another reason I love the cozy atmosphere that is my adopted home of the south. Way to go Legends, their tea is legendary. I really can't order anything else to drink when I eat there now. I do have to side with your sister, though meanie. Unless the cool owner of Legends swore you to secrecy, let's have the recipe there, Missy, before you die and take the secret to the most holy of beverages to your grave.

Yeah, for all y'all who are trying to get my recipe... get your own! Sheesh! Why should I have to share, when I did all the work? Remember the Mother Goose story of the Little Red Hen? Well, just call me Red!

I ain't even CONSIDERING sharing until I've gotten to indulge myself first. :P

Okay, but once you make that first batch, SHARE, please!
