While yogurt was being made in the dehydrator, I put a few turkey breasts into the crock pot with some home canned hot pepper mustard sauce.
Homemade grout cleaner needed re-stocked, as the tile floor is being cleaned this week. It's a job. In my next home, there will be all wood floors. No tile, no carpet. Both of them give me so much to clean and scrub (the hard way). We've talked about ripping it up, so it may even happen one of these years. I know there are other ways to clean tile, but I have to keep things "green" with no chemicals.
I also whipped up a double batch of Honey Lavender Stress Relief cookies. These are always a delicious light treat.
I made two tea infusions. One for me - nettle to drink. And one for my face - thyme/fennel facial cleanser.
2 sprigs of fresh thyme straight from my garden
2 tsp. fennel seeds crushed (I buy these organic/non-gmo)
1/2 cup boiling water
Let steep 15 minutes, strain.
Add juice from half of one organic lemon
Store in the refrigerator.
Dab face daily with cleanser.
It's my second skin cleanser to make. The first one was with lavender and apple cider vinegar. I lost the recipe. Hmpf. I'm trying this one. My thyme is growing again with all this rain we are getting.
Thyme works as an astringent and antiseptic, and fennel works as a gentle cleanser and toner for the skin. This cleanser will also help to reduce puffiness.
