I've been keeping busy in a steady, methodical, home-based sort of way. I just read my August horoscope prior to communing with you, dear reader, and it seems being practical and down to earth is the way to be for us Gemini this month. The horoscope says I've been to Planet Hell and back the past few months....Ha Ha Ha Ha.....HAHAHAHAHA! Maniacal Emphatic Laughter. And now is my chance to catch a breath. THANK GODDESS. Plus I may even come into some money around August 18. Looking forward to that.
So anyways, in addition to general scrub and brush clean up and weeding and such outdoors, I've been canning and freezing and not wasting a bit of what's coming out of the garden or from the farmers' market. You want pickles?!? I got enough for an army. Fancy peach, lime and cardamom sauce? Probably a dozen jars for January and February eating here at Chez Enhab. Plus I've frozen some loaves of zucchini bread. So far so good.
I also started making this bread again. You are making a grave mistake if you do not try to bake this yourself. It's so easy a turkey could make it. Plus it tastes fabulous.
Ok, before I lose you I also want to share this herbal tea blend I made recently. Pictured above. I didn't measure or anything but here's what's in it: blueberry leaf, bilberry fruit, red rooibos, cinnamon chips and stevia. This tea is good for regulating blood sugar and as a digestive aid as well as having abundant vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. and I made a lot of this so I thought I might work up some trades for some of it. If you want an 8 ounce jelly jar of this loose tea blend and you have something I can't live without send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and let's barter.
Now go read your horoscope and stay away from planet hell. Ok? Ok.
