Truthful Tuesday 2nd March

Frank aka PCGuyIV is our host for Truthful Tuesday.

This week’s question is a bit of a repeat, but it’s more focused on beverages than food in general. As I was perusing my Facebook memories, I ran across a meme that I had shared a few years ago that read, “It’s that time of year when people will say it’s too hot for coffee. These people do not understand coffee.” With that in mind…

Whether it’s coffee, tea, cocoa, cider, or whatever, do you reserve warm beverages for cold weather, or do you drink them all year round?I am a teapot. Winter or Summer, I cannot start my day without that first morning cuppa.
I take it with milk and no sugar, and have my own mug with Her Ladyship on the side, Hubby’s idea of a joke.
Throughout the day, every day, I will have at least six cups of tea. I like the occasional coffee and latte is my drink of choice should we be out, as I find tea can be a bit stewed and the milk often used is full fat which I find hard to tolerate.
As a child, winter bedtimes would see us with ovaltine, horlicks, or hot chocolate, very rarely cocoa.

However, on a really hot day, nothing goes down better than a half of lager!
I am not a drinker, but I remember one day was a scorcher and I downed that first half in record time, then savoured the second glass. I felt there was steam coming out of my ears.
On honeymoon in Amsterdam (May 1991), I was introduced to Dutch beer and Hubby warned me that it was a lot stronger than the stuff we got in the UK.
The first glass slid down like nectar. The second shortly followed and Hubby looked at me quizzically. The third saw me slid off my bar stool and the bartender asking if I was OK. I replied in the affirmative and asked him to just throw me the peanuts.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Did you listen to hubby after that?

    Lol! You are so funny! I love tea too! Not beer, though, I’m more of a wine drinker!

  3. I tried the ‘tea for breakfast’ routine for a while, but when you read my own post, you’ll find out why it stopped. *phew*. Now here (in Utah)? You could drink a LOT of our beer and never even get a buzz. I have seen lager in the State-owned liquor stores, but nowhere else..

    This made me smile! I only drink hot chocolate as I really don’t like tea or coffee. As for cold beverages I prefer mine at room temperature – water or flavored water. Of course a cold glass of milk with a favorite cookie is a treat but a rare one…

    • I prefer to drink water or milk if it’s ice cold, and tea or coffee if piping hot. ‘Engineer’s’ tea/coffee does not appeal and when Hubby drinks his cold, it makes me cringe! The last time I had a lager was three years ago, though I did treat myself to a bottle of poor mans Baileys for Christmas and had a small bottle of sparkling wine with my Christmas dinner.

    My mother swore tea was a drink for hot weather as well as cold. Indeed the joke was that if you couldn’t find mum in the garden you’d check the random half drunk cups of tea and the warmer they were the closer you were to finding her. She is responsible for introducing me to tea as a bed time drink!!

    • Sounds very Mumsylike! I do find a cuppa refreshing on a hot day though. I think the logic is it brings your inside temperature up to the outside and makes you feel cooler!
