Feel Good Friday #8 – Citrus Spice Simmer Pot

After working several weeks straight without any real break, this Feel Good Friday finds me taking a much needed break. I’m giving myself a gift and taking the entire day off. The laundry and the need to vacuum can wait. Momma needs a break. If anyone needs me, I will be wearing this,


leafing through these,


eating naughty things,


sipping on this,


and watching one of my all time favorite movies, yes on dvd.


Even though it’s a balmy 81 degrees in sunny Florida I will also be enjoying this.


My house is going to smell even more amazing because I’ll have simmer pot on the stove filled with grapefruit, pomegranate, whole cloves, cinnamon sticks and lemongrass from my herb garden.

Fill the pot with your ingredients and then add enough water so that it almost reaches the top without spilling over. Bring the contents of your pot to a boil and then turn the heat down to low. Allow the contents to simmer for a few hours, add water as needed and fill your home with citrus spiced goodness.
