Accepting these Winter days
catching up on some unfinished inside projects
or just sitting and doing nothing..
Sun will stream in the windows today
At lunch time I will go up to the loft, sit in the sun
and dream of Spring.
A steel cut oates kind of morning
and have been buying a quart about every 5 days.
On yogurt, oates or just plain with a little honey they are so good.
Tried something that I read about last weekend and wish I had learned years ago.
Rinse your fresh strawberries in 1 cup of vinegar and 8 cups of water (I half for 1 quart)
soak for about 5 minutes, do not rinse, cannot taste vinegar, pat dry with paper towel
and put in container uncovered (I put paper towel in bottom of bowl). I leave sitting out
for 3 or 4 days and then refrigerate if any berries left.
Berries stay fresh so much longer. I tried this last Friday and berries still
not showing signs of spoiling.
In the past berries sitting on my counter after about 3 days would spoil. In fridge
they do not taste as fresh as when out.
So wish I had known of this years ago.
You can google in case my information is not clear.
The coldest day for this one will be Thursday, below zero and then the weekend is warmer and
calling for rain.
Wonderful and can hardly wait for ice and snow to melt, need to fill my bird feeders.
