I thought about trying to fry an egg on my balcony, but we're east-facing, not west, and I still haven't been to the commissary yet. What I do have a lot of, though, is tea. So, why not iced tea? Perfect, especially given that I got very dehydrated my first day here and have been forcing myself to chug lots of water (I really don't like drinking water).
At my visit to Stash tea a few weeks ago, I picked up a box of raspberry orange iced tea mix (Of course, you don't need to use a tea made specifically for iced tea - any tea will do! You do want to use about three times as much tea as you would for plain water though.). I tossed my teabag into my brand new .99c pitcher, filled it up with water, set it on the balcony, and continued cleaning the new apartment.
A few hours later I came back and pulled the tea back inside. I then added some ice and pureed peach, and started drinking! Delicious!
