February is a short month, but it’s the worst month, right? So cold. So much snow. The worst. On the other hand, I can’t quite believe it’s March. Which means its almost April which means sun and green grass and maybe, just maybe, I won’t have to wear socks.
Anyway, here are a few things I loved in February:
Golden milk. Seriously, I can’t get enough of this. After making another batch of fider cider, I decided that I wanted to try something else with turmeric. Cut to Pinterest, the black hole of the Internet. Long ramble short, golden milk is where it’s at friends. Get on it. Side-note: To make this super easy to prepare, I keep a jar of turmeric honey on the countertop. 1/3 cup honey, 1 Tablespoon ground turmeric, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, a pinch of ground black pepper. Mix and put a lid on it! Then I add a tablespoon of the honey to a cup of warm almond milk with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
We’ve also been oil pulling (who am I?). I’ve actually only managed to do it twice because I’m still trying to get the hang of it, but Jim does it quite often. I’m going to do it again tonight while I watch TV so I’ll be distracted.
And speaking of TV, I really like Togetherness. I thought I wouldn’t like it because UGH SUBURBAN PROBLEMS (aren’t there enough shows about that?) but it’s sweet and funny and heartbreaking and well done.
My podcast list is overflowing, but I added four new ones last month. I haven’t listened to any of them yet, because my standard list IS ENOUGH, but I’ve heard good things about these so I’m going to try them … eventually: OMFG, This is Actually Happening, Do the Right Thing and Bitch Magazine.
I’m trying to menu plan for the week so there’s always something ready to reheat and eat. I think I did a pretty good job last month. I tried a few new recipes and the favorite by far, surprisingly, seemed to be the most basic: lasagna soup. It couldn’t be more simple. And it’s delicious!
Thanks for reading.
