I didn’t want to do any more recycling of photos for this week’s Lasang Pinoy. I originally planned on making a banana smoothie because I have bananas in the freezer waiting so desperately to be used. However, it’s the July 4th (long) weekend here in the US. That meant our restless and certified Pinoy feet were out of the house for most of the time throughout the three-day weekend. So no banana smoothies. Hee hee. :D
I decided to just take a pic of my drink for lunch earlier today, which, I dare say, is one of the more popular drinks anywhere…Iced Tea…
Coming from the Philippines, iced tea for me means the overly sweet “Nestea”. But after a year of living in the US, my tastebuds have already gotten accustomed to unsweetened iced tea. I sweeten it, of course! Hee hee. :) Don’t you think iced tea is so versatile? It’s a beverage one can drink anytime: lunch, dinner, midmorning & midafternoon snacks, picnic at the park, outing at the beach, watching dvds at home while relaxing in one’s home theater furniture, etcetera, etcetera. :)
Between iced tea and fresh fruit juices, my vote will always go to fresh fruit juices. We’re lucky that watermelons, honeydews and cantaloupes are quite abundant here. And they’re sweet, too! Too bad I can’t say the same about the mangoes. I miss my Philippine mangoes! :(
With that, I raise my glass of iced tea. Cheers!
