(Tea review coming…travelogue first.)
Back in the 80’s, Precious Moments was a thing … little doe-eyed, childlike characters on posters and figurines. The artist, Sam Butcher, created a Sistine-Chapel-ish attraction in a remote rural area that in its heyday, was a tour bus mecca for collectors. It’s still open, on a much smaller scale, and a ten-minute drive from my front door.

There’s an Italian restaurant on the grounds that used to be the Precious Moments Convention Center—Chef Aleks is Albanian and puts a very non-Olive-Garden touch on his specialties. I could just order a cup of his chicken marsala sauce and drink it like soup.

Anyway, we trekked that direction for Sunday lunch and I came home full of carbonara and chilled to the bone because it’s a bit of a hike from the parking lot. (Crazy weather—snow Wednesday, 55 F yesterday a.m., tornado warnings in the evening, mid-30’s with wind like daggers today).

So, too full to eat dessert, I drank it. Now the tea. I have reviewed this a couple of times, and my experience continues to be good. Almond-y teas tend to be a little finicky for me, but so far, this one hasn’t been a bit bitter, even with inattentive steeping. It it is creamy and you know that moment when you’ve held a delicious almond sugar cookie in your mouth and it reaches the melting point? Yeah. That’s this tea.

Wow! I love all of this! Chef Aleks sounds like a real treasure.

We’ve met and chatted with him—really nice guy. One of our little local news station’s fluff shows has done cooking features with him—love to watch him work.

I remember Precious Moments! Sometimes the begging pug eyes remind me of them… XD

Precious Moments were in every curio cabinet across Ohio when I was a kid. And they were even the theme of my first bible. Sounds like a great lunch to beat that wacky Midwestern weather. Chef Aleks is doing your community a great service providing delicious Italian food!

Did Precious Moments ever really go away? The pharmacy that I frequent (too frequent… why can’t the medicines all run out at the same time?) has a big ol’ display case of them still for sale…

They’re definitely still around…just past their heyday. When the Chapel (you gotta see it just once) was in its hot dog phase, they had two restaurants, a wedding venue, one of those schmaltzy “dancing water” shows and conferences/concerts nearly every weekend. It runs about 20% of that now, which makes the grounds actually pretty lovely for us to stroll when we need some “outdoors.”

I had to google this place! How bizarre. :D
