Chai la-TAY

So it's that pre-holiday time where all thoughts turn to food, and yoga, as my life will revolve around both for the next week. Now that's my idea of a holiday. I've been planning our Thanksgiving menu, making the shopping list, checking the pantry etc., and got to thinking a cup of chai would go well with these activities on a Sunday afternoon. Morgane loves a little chai in her milk, and calls it a "chai la-TAY". I decided to make some homemade chai and love how it turned out - not quite as sweet as the store-bought, but definitely richer and in my opinion yummier. I think Morgane will like it too. 

Here's the recipe. I'd recommend doubling or even tripling it, as this is only about 2 mugs:

Combine the ingredients in a medium pan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover, and let steep 15 minutes. Return to a boil, strain, and serve hot. Sip & savor - let me know what you think. Hope you find some quiet chai la-TAY time to yourself before the big day.
