Here are a few little things I did this weekend
I read about using these name labels in Better Homes and gardens. In the past I have used whole wheat pastry flour instead of cornmeal on accident because I didn't have labels. The magazine used hand writing, but I don't like my left handed scrawl, so I used School House font on my computer. I didn't put labels on every jar, I left my decorated vintage ones alone!
This is our favorite Sake, the bottles are so beautiful, so I never toss them. I turned this one into a dishsoap bottle. The lid from the original plastic bottle fit perfectly over the top. It looks very cute on my sink instead of a huge plastic bottle!
One of Bunny's co workers was telling him how good fresh almond milk was, and how it was easy to make. I love milks of all types: dairy, soy, oat, hemp, almond, pretty much every type except rice milk. So I decided to try to make some. I bought a bag of almond meal at trader joes and all you have to do is boil two cups water for every cup almond meal and let it steep for 5 minutes once mixed together. Then you can put in a blender if you want it less grainy. Or you can strain it. This bottle here is for my friend Noel, I left it pretty grainy, leaving it up to her how she wants it.
My friend has a soymilk maker I would love to spend the day at her house making batches of soymilk!
Honey is like gold to me, and I got a new bottle. Call me crazy, but packaging means everything to me, and so I didn't really like the label on his belly, so I changed it. A little obsessive, I know.
Here is a little dose of Simon and Nigel. Doesn't Simon look so proud! Like a soilder!
