This has  been a busy week for us.  On Friday, the girls and I cut some mint to try a new recipe.

We wanted to make mint syrup.  One cup water, one cup mint and one cup sugar.  Bring it to a boil, reduce heat slightly, let simmer for 10 min.  Turn off heat and let it cool to room temperature.

For a half gal of tea, we used 1 cup mint syrup and then filled up the half gallon with water. It is absolutely delicious!!  I have been making mint tea for years and I definitely think this is the best.

After making the mint syrup, we all worked in the garden.  We had to take down the old fence we had put up last year to keep the chickens out, pulled up the stakes and the tomato fence.  Then we got the tiller out and started getting it tilled.  We had high hopes of getting the plants in the ground but the rain was faster than we were.  Oh well, hopefully tomorrow (or the next day).  We have had rain all weekend.

Yesterday, we went to the Greensboro Science Center with Dave, Jess and kids.   We had a great time!

Well, that’s about it for now.  We will be starting revival at church tonight so I guess I better be getting my crew ready to leave.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

  1. Hi! I am going to go down to the creek tomorrow to see how the mint is doing. If there is enough, I’m going to make your mint syrup. It looks delicious! Sounds like the Science Center was lots of fun. And a great alternative to getting rained out at Tweetsie! I can’t wait to see you guys on Tuesday!

    I hope you had a great Sunday!!
