When I go grocery shopping, sometimes things catch my eye.
I saw this Wine and thought I’d give it a whirl. I do enjoy a good Sangria from time to time, even though I’m a White Wine enthusiast.
This Wine was bar none, the WORST Wine I have ever had, EVER!!
I’ve been trying to wrap my brain around the fact that this Wine was given 95 points by the Los Angeles Wine Competition and a Gold Medal?
Seriously, that stuff is so gross, I threw out the entire bottle, minus a small sip. Now, I’m not one to waste anything, but that was not fit for Man nor Beast! There was no way, no how that I’d be able to morph that Wine into anything that would be consumable, period. Down the drain it went.
Not so long ago, I made another batch of Meyer Lemon Curd for a recipe I want to try later down the road. This recipe calls for 12, yes a dozen Egg Yolks. 😮
What are we to do with all of these Egg Whites?
I divvied up each Egg White into a small, snack size zip-top bag and then put all 12 of them into a freezer bag. AH! Don’t forget to mark the bag with it’s content as well as the date that you froze it, I’ve made that mistake a coupla times
You can then take out as many Egg Whites as you need for all sorts of things.
What I did was to add an extra White to DH’s Scrambled Eggs in the morning, SHHHH! Don’t tell him that I was lightening up his morning 😀
Yup! I’m a July baby. AND I make my own Birthday cake, every year!
Well, it’s Salad Season again and I love to make my own Dressings, which brought to mind this post from 2017 :
I didn’t tell you all about the Anchovy Oil that I save and use in the recipe above.
My Husband is crazy for these little Fishies, me, can’t stand them! I hunted high and low for Anchovies from Italy, and finally found them at Cost Plus World Market, love this store!
Once DH has finished a jar of these babies, I save the Oil for Vinaigrette. But you can read more about that part in the thread above.
I like to change out my front door décor from time to time and went looking in my storage cabinet for something Summer-y.
I pulled this one out
… but alas, the little paper umbrellas were goners! I just so happen to have MORE of those Cocktail Parasols, so a-crafting we shall go!
I wanted to change out our ‘wreath’ on our front window to something along the lines of The 4th of July themed …
I think this came out GREAT!
It’s dead simple too …
I just got myself a piece of corrugated cardboard, cut it into a 8″ X 8″ square
Heated up my Glue Gun
Glued down 5 pairs of inexpensive slippers (or as you may call them Flip Flops) from Dollar Tree
and lastly I hung it on the window out front with a loop of Floral Wire, stuck through the cardboard.
I hope that you and yours have a happy and safe Fourth Of July!
