I'm rambling I know, sorry....but this is what is on my mind most days, as I try and decide what to cook for dinner every night, especially since it is now our turn for the triple digits! I eat a salad everyday for lunch, so the thought of eating a salad for dinner as well, is not appealing to me.
I wish I had more ideas for the summer months. What are some of your favorite things to fix for the hot months?
A tip for the day. Are you tired of buying these little cans of tomato paste, for only one to two tablespoons? I have literally tossed out nearly full cans, after they have sat in the fridge with plastic wrap around them. I then started buying the tomato paste in a tube, kind of like toothpaste, and thought that solved all my problems. Did you know that once you open that tube, it is only good for two weeks tops!!! Those sat in there too. Yesterday, I decided to try this......
I bought this silicone ice tray at Ikea a while back. I measured how much each heart could hold, and it was exactly one tablespoon! I filled as many as I could, then froze them over night.......
Look! Cute little tomato paste hearts!!! I then put them in a freezer bag, and now I can just use them as I need them.
Today I'm cutting out two more summer pieces for the shop, and then I think I better set my sights on fall sewing. Yesterday, I sat in my sewing room not really knowing what to add next. I think I finally have come up with a cute idea, and hope to share this with you soon.
Stay cool friends!
