My Handyman hates when I throw big jars away, or medium size jars, or even small jars. He sees the jar as a potential iced tea glass.
So, what else to do with his large empty pickle jar? After thoroughly cleaning and airing out the jar to get rid of the pickle taste, I filled the jar with water, added a couple of tea bags and set it outside in the hot sun. A few hours later I had Sun Tea.
1 gal. cold water
2 family size tea bags
Place cold water in large glass jar. Add tea bags. Close lid and loosen a little. Put in sun until water is dark, 3 – 5 hours. Remove tea bags, sweeten with sugar to taste. Stir well. Pour over a tall glass of ice. Optional, garnish with a slice of lemon or lime.
What a busy day! The weather is beautiful after being warned earlier in the week that we would have severe weather. The sun is shining brightly, the sky is bright blue and the humidity is down. It’s a good day to grill out for supper. I plan on stopping by the vegetable stand on the way home and picking up some farm-fresh veggies to put on grill beside whatever meat I can find at the grocery on way home. I’m thinking some nice yellow or zucchini squash, sliced lengthwise, drizzled with melted butter and sprinkled with sea salt and fresh ground black pepper would be tasting real good tonight!
We’re going to pop up the camper today and air it out in anticipation of camping this weekend. Hopefully we can and the weather will cooperate. The girls are looking forward to it. It will be our first time camping this year and usually we’ve already gone a few times.
The Cardinals play the Astros tonight so I get to listen to an exciting baseball game while preparing supper. Go Cards!!!
