DEMITASSE: FRENCH = HALF CUP, is a small cup used to serve Turkish coffee or espresso. In some languages it is called a fincan. In spanish it is called a pocillo and holds about 60-90mls or 2-3fl oz capacity. It will be my lifes plan to collect these demitasse cups now LOL.
It's soup season here in the Southern Hemisphere so we've been making soup madly, it's healthy, warming and feel good dish. I started out by making stock with 1 corn on the cob, 1 carrot, 1 celery, 1 onion, chicken neck, smoked bacon bones and beef bones, cooked that on simmer for 5 hours. My intention was to remove everything except the broth and add new veges, but hubby came home and said he liked the broth like that and added more veges. Well I must say it turned out awesome.
Now that awful floating stuff in my tea is the tea leaves, the tea strainer has a fine weave but obviously not fine enough. I waited till it settled to the bottom until I drank it.
Found the cutest bottle of milk at the supermarket, 500 mls. I normally buy my milk in glass bottles but the egg factory doesn't get its delivery of milk until Wednesday so I was happy to get this one to tide me over.
