I've taken a cue from Deborah Madison and started making sage tea a few times a week. Rub six (or so) sage leaves between your fingers to release the oils. Then, steep the herb in a cup of near-boiling water for 15 minutes.

I'm going to turn the music up, light a candle, pour a glass of port—celebrate this January darkness. Happy Sunday.


  1. Mmm, sage. I'm going to try a hot mug of this tonight before bed. Thanks for the idea, and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

  2. I'm going to try that recipe. Thanks. Enjoy your sunday.

  3. Oh, yum. Sage always reminds me of Thanksgiving. Am currently mustering up the courage (and patience) to read Goldfinch.

  4. I keep wondering about The Goldfinch, I've heard good things about it recently. I'd love to hear how it is.
