In the past few years our family has tried to adopt a healthier approach to food- more clean eating. You know fresh vegetables,whole grains and more real food as opposed to processed and packaged foods.
My older kids will tell you that we have tried time and time again to get off all the white stuff- you know white sugar, and white flour- but it slips back in, ever so quietly.
Yesterday as I was preparing dinner I made a pitcher of iced tea-best tea on the planet. I'm not bragging- my kids will tell you- it's good every time.It's one of those things that just have become a part of "us"- white sugar and all!!!!! As I dumped the 1 full cup of the white "poison" in I wondered why it tastes so good.
I don't have the answer but I do know that after being in the heat all day we ALL want a glass of iced tea with supper.
I don't know if that'll ever change.
This last week I tried a project that I thought was just too cute for words- eggshell candles. Aren't they adorable??? The scent is called "sweet milk".
The only problem is- I don't really enjoy making candles and as cute as they are they don't work well. The wick singes the shells and then they STINK!!!
Moral of the story: I don't care for doing candles!!!! I'll just keep buying them from Pierre at "81" or online at http://jillsuzanne.com/products/index.php?category=2 I was also treated to some really nice crocheted lace!!! Angela brought a huge bag full of this yummy stuff for Liz and I to fight over! We both had some great ideas and looks like I'll get to the sewing room next week to start on some of them!! Thanks Angela, for supporting our obsession!!! :)
