Here's what Leah and I were labeling...
The original labels have faded over the years, so we made some new ones with Leah's labelmaker. The print itself is slightly funky because Leah accidentally dropped the cartridge in Sammy and Annie's water bowl--ROFL! So this was a good thing to use up a lot of the funky tape on. It's not like they are out where you can see them.
We have made our own room sprays and a few concoctions for headaches, sleeping, etc. Leah's making bug spray now. She has quite a few of our EO stash over at her place right now--and she and Dagan labeled those while I was there on Sunday. If we hadn't done something soon we wouldn't have known what we had in another year or two--hehe!
Another extra large grocery order this month. Of course they don't put a lot in each bag, either. Kind of annoying that they waste so many bags, but I recycle them. I give the empty bags back when they come the next month and they recycle them. :)
So many things that have never seen the inside of my kitchen: pita bread, fillo, farfalle, couscous, mango chutney, kalamata olives, pesto, portabella & shitake mushrooms, coconut milk, salsa. I wonder how many of them will ever make it back a second time? ROFL!
If anybody has any ideas on how to store the roasted chickpeas, please let me know. When I put them in an airtight container they got all soggy. I roasted them again to dry them out (still good) and have just left them out in a bowl. Maybe once they get dry enough they can be stored in an airtight container? Anyways, I actually like them. Will make them again, for sure--and try different seasonings. :)
Oh--and the Kashi crackers are really good with cheese spread! Of course, isn't anything better with cheese? hehe! Also yummy with this veggie spread I bought. I'm going to try some other toppings, too.
Karma parked herself in the bag pile--as usual. :)
I did watch more of season three of Supernatural and then watched Precious.
Viciously abused by her mother (a riveting, Oscar-winning Mo'Nique) and pregnant by her father, Harlem teen Precious Jones (Oscar nomineeGabourey Sidibe) has an unexpected chance at a different life when she enrolls in an alternative school. Teacher Blu Rain (Paula Patton) encourages her, but Precious must battle unimaginable barriers everywhere in her life. Lee Daniels directs this drama that features appearances by Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz.
Wow! It was an emotional ride! I can see why both the ladies were up for oscars. One of those movies that lingers around in your brain cells and your heart. Brutally honest. Shows you the whys--even what is behind the curtain with the monster. A reminder that each of those "invisible" people you see every day has their own story--and not to pass judgment or make assumptions. Kindness can light upon a soul and even change a path. We need to remember that we are all connected. :):)
Quote for the day.
We cannot hold a torch to light another person's path without brightening our own.
