So many OWLs coming up! I so wish I could sign up for one more...baby girl is going to need a sweater, and while I can knit around her hanging out with me or nursing, I can't cross-stitch that way...I also need to work on her stocking, which is one of those felt kits. I decorate for Christmas at the beginning of December so it needs to be done by then, lol.
Those cupcakes are soooo cute, they look absolutely delicious!
I've got another little project to add:
Name: Instant Mojito
So we were able to have a teeny patio garden this year, and included in the plants were spearmint and orange mint. I love mojitos (virgin since I'm nursing) and was inspired to make a citrus-mint simple syrup so that I don't need to go through the bother of muddling and such.
1 c. water
1 c. sugar
small handful of mint leaves
1 key lime (zested then juiced)
1 tbsp lemon juice
Put water and sugar together in a small pot, and heat on medium. Bruise the mint leaves with your fingers, and add in the lime zest, juice, and lemon juice. Bring the pot to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Allow to cool, then strain into a mason jar. Yields about 1.5 cups. Chill the syrup, then add to club soda for an instant virgin mojito!
