Moroccan tea is a staple in the beautiful northern African country. Everywhere you go you will find locals sipping on this (often WAY over sweetened) mint nectar. As they are muslim and don’t consume alcohol, they jokingly call it Berber Whiskey, and it is considered very rude to turn down a cup. (I once did and they gave it to me anyway…)
Drinking hot tea on a desert hot day seems counterintuitive, but it really did help to cool down. But I couldn’t resist making an iced version when we came back home. Head over to Best Friends for Frosting for the recipe!
Today I’m also on the Wayfair blog. Going into my fifth year of teaching, I have a pretty good idea of which school supplies are necessary, and which to avoid. Hints:
- Avoid anything too toy like, such as a horse shaped pencil sharpener. Your child may only end up playing with it and getting it taken away.
- Unless specified by the teacher or unless your child is in middle school, you won’t need 5 packets of loose leaf paper. 1-2 should be enough. None if your child is in grades K-3.
- Avoid any supplies that are combined, such as an eraser with a pencil sharpener inside, or scissors with rubberized, eraser handles. It may seem like a good idea to save space, but they so rarely work properly.

And lastly, just because it is the best period commercial I have ever seen, and an amazing idea for girls getting theirs for the first time:
If I had a daughter on the brink of teenagehood, I would certainly show her this video, and subscribe her to this box.
