On Saturday, I saw the first snow flurries I have ever seen since living in Florida for the last eleven years. Even though I grew up living in the Midwest where getting a couple feet of snow each year was common, I felt like an excited child when I saw those tiny flakes falling from the sky.
Getting so excited about those flurries, made me realize that I have grown accustom to the South. I’ve learned to say “y’all” and “fixin’ to”, and I can even make some biscuits and sausage gravy that will stick to your ribs. However, there is one thing that I will never get used to in the South, and that is sweet tea!
Since I married a Southerner, this was a problem when we were first married. My husband likes to have tea with his dinner, so I attempted several times to make him tea during our first few years of marriage. But it never came out right, and I resorted to buying his tea from the grocery store for years.
Then about two years ago, I decided to give the sweet tea another try. When my husband drank my new version, he loved it and even said that it tasted like the tea his granny used to make. When he said that, I knew I had hit the jackpot!
I did a little happy dance!
Ever since then I have been making his sweet tea and saving $5 at the grocery store each week! I like to call this my perfect sweet tea because it took me six years to get it just right!
