Thank you all for the wonderful comments from yesterdays post. It was great to hear everyone’s thoughts and suggestions, and it left me with a ton more to think on with the issues of plastic consumption.
There is one last surprise project for Rhythm of The Home that is up today. It is hard to believe that the winter season is coming to an end, and that we are putting together the Spring edition over the next few weeks. We have such an amazing list of contributors, and it is just exciting to see this project grow.
As my children have learned to read, and are now spending more and more time in their own reading spaces, I thought that it would be fun to make them book covers to enjoy. I always loved covering my books in brown paper or fabric, and it was a special way to mark what I was reading at the time. These covers are also perfect for a personal journal or sketch book.
The covers are easy enough for the most beginner sewer, and are even perfect for an afternoon project with your children. We hope you enjoy!
Once the covers were made (the boys insisted that we make them for about 10 of their favorite books) I sat down to make a cup of chai tea, and put a few gluten free drop biscuits into the oven. As I was standing there, I was trying to come up with a few other recipes that might be good with the concentrate mixed into it. It took me a minutes to realize that I was staring right at it.
As soon as my biscuits came out of the oven, I drizzled the chai right over them, and it was the most luscious frosting I think that I have ever had. It melts over the biscuits, and provides the perfect blend of sweet and spice to the hearty bread.
The kids and I literally sat on the kitchen floor and ate the whole pan (there is only 5, it wasn’t that bad). Not one crumb was left when we were done, and I see a very regular treat in our household.
My next stop with this versatile chai? Tea bread and rice pudding.
I’ll keep you posted.
