This was supposed to be a post with pictures of cute onesies that I appliqued for my new granddaughter Avery . . . with matching hair bands, but I actually forgot to take pictures of them. How do I forgot to take pictures of anything???? I am still trying to figure that one out. Plus I didn't even realize that I hadn't taken pictures of them for a couple of days. What is with me? I am pretty sure I must have been thinking only about giving them to her . . . and more importantly - just excited to go see her. So maybe I will get pictures of them later . . . if not - they turned out really cute and I am hoping to make some more. So instead . . . you get pictures of my Turmeric Tea . . . or Turmeric Milk may be a more accurate description. I have made something similar before, but I really like this recipe and having been drinking it consistently. Turmeric is supposed to help with inflammation as well as having other health benefits. How much it helps??? - but it is worth a try.
Plus this is just fun to make every night.
Richard commented that I was mixing up some witches brew . . . maybe it was the moon and star spoon that gave him that idea. (The spoon belonged to my grandma . . . and I love using it.)
He did agree though that this tastes pretty good.
You start out by making a turmeric paste . . . that keeps in the refrigerator up to two weeks.
Someone else commented while looking in my refrigerator . . . that it does look like something else. But we won't go there . . . . because who would keep a jar of that in their refrigerator? :)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup turmeric
Simmer on low 7-10 minutes.
Store in glass container in refrigerator. Will keep up to two weeks.
Turmeric Mild Recipe:
2 cups coconut milk
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. - 1 Tbsp. turmeric paste
1 tsp. chopped fresh ginger
1 pinch stevia
Whisk ingredients together in sauce pan over low heat.
Simmer for 10 minutes - stirring occasionally.
Strain. Top with cinnamon.
The coconut milk tends to make this a little thick. I have found that I like it better if I use a little less coconut milk and add a little water. (1 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1/2 cup water)
Watch out spilling this stuff . . . it turns everything yellow and I would advise using glass bowls not plastic ones . . . just so they don't stain.
No onesie pictures . . . but here is one of our new baby girl.
She is already a month old.
Dream big little girl . . .
