food:: homemade hooch & other kitchen alchemy
Martha’s Roadside Vineyard presents mildly aged peach wine, peach mead, & mulberry wine.
~canning:: mushrooms and soup stock~
so easy:: sliced fresh baby bella mushrooms cooked for 5 minutes, then canned for 45 minutes with a 1/4 tsp. sea salt per jelly jar
They were the perfect addition to a spaghetti braid for dinner this week.
oh yeah, the jar lid idea was a Pinterest find as well…
My only suggestion to make the soothing oatmeal bath easier:: blend the oats first and then stir in the rest of the ingredients afterwards if you are using a blender instead of a food processor.
And I can’t forget to share this one. It must be one of the best links I’ve found yet. I got rid of my Magic Bullet blender because it was a POS and died within about a year of purchasing. Did I mention I’m a smoothie addict?
I always have about 15 pre-measured bags of fruit set up in the freezer for quick smoothie breakfasts on the go.
My favorite smoothie recipe is:: mixed frozen fruit (bananas, watermelon, blackberries, peaches, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries – in any combination) and orange juice. That’s it. Fill the jar 3/4 of the way with the frozen fruit and fill with enough OJ to blend easily.
Whatever did I do before I had Pinterest? Ummm, well I found fewer great links to even fewer great ideas and promptly forgot each idea immediately after turning off my computer.
A toast to Pinterest, “May you continue to serve as an auxiliary brain to the memory-impared for many years to come.”
