Tuesday Tip: Fridge Beauty

Standard

Don’t you just love it when your husband brings home flowers? I’m the kinda girl who likes it even when he buys different kinds of flowers from the grocery store – and gives me the chance to arrange them myself.

Oooohhhh I hope my husband reads my blog today.

I don’t often get to create my own art, though, after digging playdoh out of carpet, magic-eraser-ing paint off tables, and brushing dried glue out of lovely locks of hair.  The one who gives me a chance to be creative, gives me a true soul deep gift.

You need a quick easy soul deep creative gift, don’t you.

Well, ok. Maybe you’re more practical than me.

Do this with your fresh herbs the next time you buy them.

Store your herbs in the fridge in some water - they'll last longer and you get to look at beautiful herb arrangement every time you open it.

Every time you open your fridge, you’ll take a deep breath and exhale with a smile. (Unless your kids left a homeschool science project in there that stinks. Then, well…your deep breath taking won’t be so deep.)

I’ve learned a great lesson in life. Parsley, cilantro, rosemary, thyme, and green onions are all so much happier in a Mason jar of water than they are lying in a dark damp cold corner in a bag. If I were in a dark, damp, cold corner in a bag, I’d probably be forgotten about too.

Store your herbs in the fridge in some water - they'll last longer and you get to look at beautiful herb arrangement every time you open it.

Go for it, though. Trim then ends, and the water will keep them fresh a few days longer. The cilantro leaves may start turning back a bit; they actually do a bit better on the countertop. But mine are in the fridge now. I pretend they are bowing to my creative cooking genius.

*Snort.*

And sometimes, your kitchen looks like this after Tuesday mornin’ breakfast. So you need to open your fridge, and smell the parsley.

Yeah, we use towels to clean off our table after breakfast. Rags are for sissies.

(sigh. I’m really trying to convince myself this morning, can’t you tell?)

Store your herbs in the fridge in some water - they'll last longer and you get to look at beautiful herb arrangement every time you open it.

Hey, if you look at it every day, you *may* actually remember you bought that parsley and use it more than once!

Happy Tuesday, ya’ll.

About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!

Tell me what you think!
