my cupboard is useful again!

useful.  it's a term i've been hearing a lot lately.  Bubby is on a Thomas the Tank Engine kick, and Thomas likes to be useful.  (of course for 90% of each episode, Thomas is a little jack-ass but always realizes the error of his ways and is, in fact, useful, by the end)

i have a cupboard in my kitchen that hasn't been exactly useful.  my witchy cupboard.  it's sat very lonely for a couple of months now.  I'm not sure if it's the weird weather winter we've been having, or the switch-over from Persephone to Frigga.  but it's sat, being slowly taken over by excess boxes of Cajun food (because we have TONS, and need a place to keep it all) and basically being of very little use at all.

and then....  pintrest.

oh yes, this is another 'gods pintrest, how i love you' post.  because it has helped me to circle back a bit more towards the kitchen witch side of myself (which you'd think i'd be all over because of the Frigga thing)  so far this week alone, i've dried apples for snack, made garlic oil for an ear infection, and made vanilla extract.

did you hear me?


that's right.  that's how cool i am.  i just mixed vodka and vanilla beans and made WONDERMENT PEOPLE!!!  did you know it was even possible to make extract?  i had no idea, but apparently friends of mine have been doing this for years.  and it's going to be awesome.  and i can't fracking wait to bake something with extract i made by myself.

this calls for brownies.

Scrappy little hat

I got a bag of scrap yarn from a friend.  Yarngasm. So today I knit up this cute little hat.
