Digging through the cupboards for something different today…what a combo!!
Now before you declare me an alcoholic…I only used about half a tsp of brandy. Shouldda used more! I’m not sure I could sense the aroma of the brandy because the butterscotch chips were so heavenly.
- 1/3 cup oats, vanilla soy milk, water, 1 medium banana, pinch salt
- 1/4 cup wheatberries
- 1/2 tsp – 1 tsp brandy
- Sprinkle ground flax
- 1 tbsp-ish toasty sliced almonds
- 1/2 tbsp butterscotch chips
- Spoonful Barney Butter
I am becoming quite the yogi Well, really, I just have more time this week. But I hope to continue the habit into the upcoming semester. I did this class this morning from Yoga Today. I love that these are free, have video accompaniment, and are set in beautiful Jackson, Wyoming. They are pretty casual (the instructors make mistakes) but that’s no problem! My only complaint: the hour-long class was too long for me and I lost interest at 44 minutes. I made it through 53 minutes and then moved on to breakfast. Sorry, yoga, my attention span doesn’t last that long!
Knock On Wood
You guys know I have been searching for the best wood floor cleaner for our kitchen floors for ages. Here are four kinds I’ve tried – plus vinegar and water. I made a decision today on the best option.
1) Method Wood Floor Cleaner – It doesn’t clean at all, and works just OK as a polish. It leaves my floors kind of splotchy with oil spots. Expensive and is used up quickly.
2) Murphy Oil Soap – The worst I’ve tried. My floor still had dirt spots after washing and drying. Cheap, but smells horrible. Requires a messy, heavy + time consuming bucket of water.
3) OrangeGlo Hardwood – Doesn’t clean at all, but great for a polish. Feels kind of chemically and doesn’t’ smell great. Expensive.
4) Vinegar + Water – The best cleaner. GREEN!!! Cheap!! Leaves the floors a bit dull. Requires a messy, heavy + time consuming bucket of water. Leaves the house smelling like vinegar.
5) Mrs. Meyers All Purpose Concentrated Cleaner – By far the best smelling. GREEN. Super convenient because I put in a spray bottle and generously spray the floors instead of having to use a bucket of water. Inexpensive since you only need a small amount per spray bottle. Also used to clean the counters daily so double duty.
-Use Mrs. Meyers each week.
-Use time-intensive vinegar and water once a month (or more if needed).
You guys probably noticed the “More” addition. I’m making some changes in anticipation of some upgrades and reformatting to make the site more user friendly for the recipes and all. But don’t worry – my goal is to keep KERF as sleek and simple as always.
I’m probably going running and/or to the gym in a bit.
