Apple Iced Tea


We made 10 moves in 15 years and the most interesting thing about them is that we ended up in many cities, town and states that were never in our 'plan'. We were able to live in the South for five (5) years before we were transferred 'up north' - just a hop, skip and jump from the Canadian border. Currently we live in the upper Midwest where the winters can last 7 months, the temperatures fall to negative double digits and our driveway is lined with six-foot snow drifts.

It's far from the plans we discussed in our living room in Southern California that included raising our 'beach baby' children near the sun, sand and surf and growing lemon trees in our backyard!

Our hearts however, are forever in the South and during the long winter months, I remember life in Tennessee and take joy in some of my recipes from 'The South', like this one from Southern Living for Apple Iced Tea.

Apple Iced Tea
