A London Fog (earl grey tea latte) is a fairly common occurrence here in Vancouver. It’s a winning combination of earl grey tea, vanilla and steamed milk. But this fabulous flavour combination doesn’t just make for a comforting cool weather drink, it can be enjoyed as London Fog Cookies too!
Apparently this sums up summer!!!
I mean we did encourage her to keep a journal over the summer break. I just didn’t expect it to go in quite this direction.
Honourable mention about my two cup a day coffee habit, is arguably note worthy of course. I mean it doesn’t get much more fun than that when we discuss summer break now does it?! But is it really too much to ask that I don’t look drunk with my coffee, and struggling to stay upright on my chair in the sunshine?!

So cue the crazy hair day cookies! Continue reading Crazy Hair Day Cookies
