Joining Altered Book Love and the T-gang this week, as many prayers are being said for France and the fight against terrorism. This photo collage is one that I saw on Facebook and it brought tears to my eyes.
Now it is time to share my T-time drink.
I saw something on Pinterest (oh surprise there!!) and it involves Epsom Salt and I knew there was some around here.....somewhere. I finally found it, under the bathroom sink.......way in the back. Now this box of ES has been around here for long time, and I do mean a LONG time, so long it had become a brick of salt......LOL!!! Well, I need it to be back in granular condition, so I beat on the box, with a metal ladle, until it was in large chunks. Then I put the large chunks into a zip lock bag and beat it some more. Now that's more exercise than I've had in a week.....and there were still pieces a little too large hummmmmmm.........................
Well, I dug around in one of the kitchen cabinets and finally found what I was looking for.......as OLD sifter...........I think it was my Mom's, or maybe my Grandmother's sifter. I had already sifted some of the first banged out bag of salt when I remembered the camera. My cup has some of the Coconut Tea you can see in the background.
Do you remember these sifters? Most recipes, now a days, don't call for sifting your flour along with your baking soda, salt and baking powder.....now we just throw it all in the bowl and mix it well.........LOL!!
As a kid, I remember how much fun it was to turn that little crank and sift the flour, with dreams of one day being a wife and mother........just like my Mom. Of course I also wanted to be an actress, dancer, school teacher and many other things.......*grin*
So, as I was working the little crank, and watching my salt become granules again, I was flooded by such good memories.
Looking down into the sifter, you can see that all was NOT a complete success, some of those were just not going to beak up, so into the blue bowl to be used for bath time. That ended the "battle of the salt". It will work great for the project I have in mind....but that has been put on the shelf for after Thanksgiving.......since it is a Christmas decoration......*grin*
The Playhouse is parked out side and waiting to be loaded for our annual trip to the desert next week. The Honey Baked ham has been ordered and it came with a large Honey Baked turkey breast...yummmm! Our oldest son will smoke a turkey and for the 6 of us there will be enough food to feed 25....LOL Everybody has a favorite dish for the holidays!! What is yours?
We will be leaving "early" next Tuesday, so chances are I won't have time to really do a T-day post. So I will wish everybody, that celebrates, a Happy Thanksgiving and to all a Happy T-day!!
