I have been wanting to make some upper-body garments for few months now and convinced myself that I needed to by yarn. However, thanks to a stash reshuffle I have isolated 4 sets of yarn for 4 wonderful projects which will be revealed over time.
I have also decided to embrace a 'green' mentality. My aim is to use what I have in as many ways as possible in the kitchen and in my crafting. I have a lot of stuff and there is a lot I still have to experiment with. I am happy to be in a good place.
Today I made some Peppermint Ice-Tea. It is a product of the positive approaches I have taken this week. I found two boxes of peppermint tea and some honey as I reorganized my pantry. I also came across an expired tub of ice tea mix.
It didn't happen all at once but eventually my mind's process lead me to making up some Iced-Tea with some fresh limes my Step-Mom brought home. The result is a delightfully fresh and palette cleansing drink; perfect for summer.
Further I used some tomato sauce and canned mushrooms I have had in my cupboard for months in tandem with fresh tomatoes, carrots, onions and garlic to slow cook a sauce to serve with some linguine. It was tasty but not all I hoped for, next time I'll add in more seasoning and less water.
