Red tea cake

Hey pixels!! I love tea as much as I love coffee, so when I found this tea cake I was so happy. I’ve just made my first one, and I’m going to eat a piece now. With, guess what? Yes, a cup of tea!! Too much tea?? I don’t think so…

It’s been a while since my last post. I’m sorry, my happy pixels… I needed to take some kind of Internet detox. I spent a lot of time using my computer, my smartphone… so last week I reduced this time. Just a bit using my smartphone, but I did not use my computer. You know, it was easy to take this break: giro d’Italia. I’m so happy with Dumoulin’s victory.
