On Saturday afternoon we took a trip uptown to Kalustyan’s, a beautiful spice store on Lexington, which incidentally (or, oddly), is where Vice President Chester Arthur was sworn in as President when Garfield died from gunshot wounds.
JustAwesome picked up some star anise, burdock, sarsaparilla, mint and whoknowswhat. In a pot they all went (with the nose hair of a small statured man and the ear wax of a Siamese cat). From the other room I heard a cackle or two. She magically turned our water into seltzer, mixed with the aforementioned concoction, and we had homemade freakin’ root beer. NO WAY!!! JA made root beer! All natural! I am under her spell.
Tonight for dessert? Root beer floats. What else?
