my juicer & blender are getting a workout this summer. the other day i had some berries on the verge of going bad in the fridge so i tossed them into my juice. i’m amazed at the sweetness of fruit. and when combined with mint, 1/4 lemon with peel, and cucumber. my kitchen was surely the most aromatic on the block. a divine fruit cocktail!
this juice has body to it, almost like a thin smoothie.
i’m trying to get more greens in so i’ve also been making a delicious smoothie with fresh baby kale, chard, spinach, frozen blueberries, frozen pineapple, flax, and oj. very palatable. if you make a green smoothie that is dairy free, i’d love to hear about it! or a juice blend for that matter. do tell.
i want to push summer’s stop button. being in my kitchen with the morning sunlight, listening to the birds, the breeze moving the branches, a dome of blue just outside. well, it just makes me feel ecstatic. being home is such a pleasure.
i’ve been putting together carol & my travel journals. mine is finished. since my trip coincides with STITCH*BOOKERY i’ll go through the process of making the book with you in class. have been trying to document the journey from piles of paper, thread, and images to completed book.
here’s where i am.
now i begin sister’s !
