Mother’s Day minis

If you follow my business, Harmony Boards, on social media you may already know that I will be offering mini-boards for pick up on Mother’s Day weekend only.

I closed my business on March 18th to not only stay safe myself but to keep my father, who I take supplies and see often, safe as well. The way my business is set up requires me to grocery shop just about every other day for fresh produce and other goods. It is not like the restaurants who have been able to stay open, offering take-out, since those establishments have their produce and other goods delivered directly to them, without the need to venture out for any items.

When I offered the opportunity to make the mini boards for Mother’s Day in collaboration with a local florist and venue in downtown Phoenix, it felt the like perfect solution and opportunity to keep Harmony Boards in front of people, to remind them that we are still here and will be back when it is deemed safe to be back in full force.

a salt update

On April 28th, I posted a recipe for Fresh Italian Herb Salt. In the comment section, Linda G. posed this question, “Why is there a 3 week storage time limit? Does the moisture cause it to break down?” Her inquiring lead me to test drying out the salt to find if that would make it pantry safe and extend its shelf life.

The answer is yes, you can spread the salt out on a baking sheet, leave it out in the dry summer sun for a day (longer or inside if it is humid in your area) and it will dry and be able to be kept in the pantry and not have an expiration date. In the photo below, the jar on the left is the fresh salt that needs to be refrigerated and the jar on the right is the pantry safe dry salt.

Friday cocktail

Seriously, why am I not posting a cocktail recipe every Friday?!? While we’re all staying home, classic cocktails with new names, like the Quarentini are popping up all over the place.

This cocktail is my spin on the classic Zombie, tweaked and swirled to become a Zoombie. If you’re not on the phone with friends and family in FaceTime, you’re on your computer with friends and family in Zoom. Zoom Happy Hours have been the thing to do for weeks now. So please feel free to forward this recipe to your friends so that y’all can mix up a batch in your own kitchens and enjoy it together.

I enjoyed the Zoombie earlier this week with two dear friends who came by for a much needed Social Distancing Happy Hour. By the way, the appetizer you see in the photos above is Zucchini Crostini. It is always a hit!
