Summer in a Jar

You all know I love hot tea and I do drink it even when it is hot outside, but I also love iced tea. If I know I'm going to be out and about I usually just toss a big tea bag into a quart mason jar and add a few springs of mint or lemon balm and water. I twist on one of the plastic lids and am ready to roll. I've brewed it in the fridge overnight so it's cold and ready to go the next morning. I've also taken a just assembled jar and left it in the van to steep on the dash. Not as cold, but still refreshing.

Today we're headed to the library. I'll be sure to grab my jar to take with us. I'd brewed a bunch of herbal iced teas for dinner last night, so I'm all set.

I had my Bunco group over and had such a wonderful time with everyone! We had supper together and dessert and then just kept talking. We never ended up playing.

They were asking me questions about how we've changed things here at home. I ended up passing around jars of all the stuff I make now and sharing what everything was. The deodorant was a big hit!

It was such a neat time to share with the ladies I love in real life. I figured they thought I was just crazy, but they were really curious and even want to learn how to make things, too! I'll share more in another post soon.

Have a great day!

That would be a neat thing for a party. An assortment of iced teas in mason jars w/ a tag sticking out for a label maybe...I can see the jars nestled in a bed of ice...

That makes me want Iced tea, and I'm not the biggest fan of it!
I opened a jar of herbed green beans that I canned last year for dinner yesterday- WONDERFUL! They were basil and rosemary, I just bought 12 pounds today to make more!

Hi...I just found your blog this evening...and I believe by reading your list of favorites in your side bar that we are kindred spirits...I have a list too and if anyone matches "most" of my list I considere them a kindred spirit and have an award right below the list that you can help yourself to, no strings attached.

I'll be back for more of your great blog!!♥
