“Would you like an adventure now,” he said casually to John, “or would you like to have your tea first?” Wendy said “tea first” quickly, and Michael pressed her hand in gratitude, but the braver John hesitated. “What kind of adventure?” he asked cautiously. — Peter Pan
We’ve completed our Peter Pan menu, but since this month has an extra Thursday in it, we get to do a bonus post. Huzzah! This post also happens to be extra bonus-y because we’re announcing a new permanent page on the site. Double huzzah!
It’s hard to believe it’s been 4 whole months since I created a new book-themed tea blend for one of our menus. Fear not, tea lovers! We’ve got a new blend, this time with a Peter Pan theme: Second Star to the Right. It’s a bedtime blend composed of moonlight Earl Grey tea, vanilla, cream, and a sprinkling of lavender.
Which leads me to my announcement: See that new tab on the menu bar, the one labeled “Alison’s Wonderland Teas from Adagio”? Now you can find all my Adagio blends right here on the blog. SO MANY HUZZAHS! Please order as many as you desire, since the proceeds from the sales help keep the lights on around here.
They make for great Mother’s Day presents too!*
* That was my attempt at a shameless product plug. Am I doing it right?
Last week I announced that I’d be taking part in the #ReadingMyLibrary challenge for the month of April, because I love libraries…and any excuse to read more! 🙂
For those who didn’t see the announcement, the rule of the challenge is that you need to read at least one library book and discuss it in either a blog post, #ReadingMyLibrary main page comment, or social media post. Since I found out about the challenge just after my weekly library visit, I’ll be discussing the books I picked up that day: the first two installments in the Lockwood & Co. series by Jonathan Stroud.
It’s FINALLY starting to feel like spring around here. The snow is gone! The sun is out! And the birds are singing their wee hearts out! Singing isn’t really my thing, so I decided to show my appreciation for the sunny weather by creating 3 spring-themed kids’ snacks:
Seeing as I don’t have an infinite book budget, I’m a huge proponent of libraries. So it’s not that surprising that I was downright gleeful when I discovered that Stephani from Caught Read Handed and Amy from Read What I Like were hosting a library-oriented reading challenge for the month of April. It’s called the #ReadingMyLibrary Challenge, and all you have to do is read a library book and blog/comment about it! Considering I picked up two new library books just before hearing about the challenge, I was more than prepared. 🙂 Read More
Pirates! Peter Pan wouldn’t be the same without them, particularly Captain Hook. In just the same way that Peter is the embodiment of childhood, Hook is the quintessential pirate: cruel, cutthroat, yet “not wholly unheroic.” He’s said to be the only man of whom Barbecue was afraid, but I can’t help but find his refinement and devotion to good form endearing.
This Pirate Map Pizza is our tribute to the pirates of Neverland, complete with all the major Neverland landmarks: Neverpeak Mountain in the center, Neverwood Forest to the west, Tiger Lily’s Camp to the north…and a path to some buried treasure!
Our new Book of the Month is Peter Pan! Congrats to Selah from A Bibliophile’s Style who guessed it after our hint on Wednesday. With Easter approaching fast, this is probably a crazy busy week for many of you, so we’ll cut right to the chase:
Hey there, Wonderlanders! After such a crazy March, here’s hoping the snow is finally behind us. Luckily, our new book of the month is just the sort to get you thinking happy thoughts. Can you guess what it is? Here’s your photo hint:
