Last year I was lucky to win one of Annette’s calendars. Well 2016 is over and I really thought the calendar was too cute to just hand it over to the trash bin. So: What to do with old calendars? I asked myself.
I usually have my cup of coffee by pushing a button and it’s done. However when having guests it would keep me quite busy. So we also got a fancy French press system for our wedding. But what to do when some is left?!
Freeze it. Yep.
With this kind of weather iced coffee is the best choice. But putting ice cubes in your coffee usually makes it quite watery (is that a word?). So freeze your cold coffee and just pour milk over your cubes. Very yummy, very refreshing.
are you online shopping crazy like me? I mean come on why hassle to the store, stand in line for the dressing room, fight your way to the cashier or not finding what you were looking for in the first place and ending up spending money that didn’t need spending…
Yes I am a big online shopper. I like it, it’s so much easier and much more relaxing.
However you do end up with all the boxing, papers, bubble wrap and what else. We keep some of it because we do sell online too but once in a while it’s just too big of a pile. That is when I start using the stuff laying around.
Like the other day I wrapped my friends birthday gift in boxing paper and added some masking tape.
I was quite happy with me. I thought it looked good, she liked it, less ruffle in my apartment and no trash in the can. Sounds like win-win for me.
Letzte Woche habe ich aus den Vanille-Schoten-Röhrchen ein kleines Recycle Projekt gemacht. Aber da bleibt noch mehr über zu Re-Usen und Recyceln. Die Schale der Vanilleschote.
Und was machen wir daraus? Homemade Vanillezucker!
Last week we had a little DIY with old Vanilla glass storage. This week we recycle the remains of a vanilla bean. And what do we do with them? Homemade vanilla sugar!
Nimm die Schale und schneide sie klein. In ein hübschen Glas füllen, Zucker drauf ein bisschen warten und die Schale gibt den Geschmack und Geruch an den Zucker ab.
Schmeckt lecker zu ALLEM! Geht ratze-fatze-blitze-flinke! Viel Spaß!
After scraping the seeds out of the bean cut up the peel. Take a cute little glass jar, put in the peel, add sugar and wait. The sugar will absorb the taste and odor of the vanilla. Easy peasy and in a jiff. Have fun. Tobia
