And to make this post a bit more interesting. I discovered how to make cheater kombucha 🙂

picstitch-4

 

Take a can of zevia (any flavor will do! I made ‘apple pie’ kombucha with cream soda zevia and cinnamon!), pour it into a cup to let the fizzles go down, add a dash (tablespoon or so) of apple cider vinegar and your good to go!! You get the vinegary-ness from the acv, and the sweet, slightly fizzy, flavored part from the soda. If you need to add a bit of sweetener, go right ahead -but this costs wwwaaaayyyyyy less than bottled kombucha and the acv has a ton of benefits (even if its not quite the same as ‘real’ kombucha). And you can make any flavor you like!

Thats all for now!

Without Context

Sometimes

A word, A phrase, An idea (a recipe)

will pitch a tent in my mind

and refuse to leave

A guest which outstays its welcome

perhaps.

I think to myself

this would make a good poem

this fragment of a line

and it will not leave me be

until it is permanent

on paper

in what context?

there is none.

just pieces

and bits

of my thoughts

floating on a page

until at last they find a home.

shoes pounding the pavement in sync with the heartbeat of the earth

as I float round the river in my blue froot loop

we wash the live, rich creations of the world off in a sterile, plastic tub

isn’t poetry grand!

when no rhymes are required?

or even if they are?

just thoughts

floating on a page

without context

until I build them a home

with nothing but a pen.

Cinnamon Sugar Plantains

Because some recipes are so simple, they would rather live with no context.

  • 2 over ripe plantains
  • coconut sugar
  • cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Peel and slice your plantains into coin sized pieces 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle with a little bit of coconut sugar and cinnamon and roast for 15 minutes. Take out of oven, flip, and sprinkle the other side with a little more cinnamon and sugar. Roast 5 more minutes, broiling at the end if you wish. Let cool before serving
