Milk & Magic
It's nerve-wracking to wear this cardigan, because any pristine white garment seems to be calling out for a spill. I wore an apron during lunch, but I can't let my guard down. You never know when your hand is going to slip and tea will splash out of your mug. Luckily I've avoided that fate so far!
Today I made milk from shredded coconut. I'm cutting out dairy (mostly) for a few weeks to see if it affects my skin. I didn't use a specific recipe, but here are two that seem legit: on Crunchy Betty & Healthful Pursuit. I recommend using a French press if you don't have other straining options. And save the pulp to bake with!
I started rereading Marion Zimmer Bradley's The Mists of Avalon. I love Arthurian/Grail legends, especially when told from a feminine perspective. #Herstory, whattup! Medieval witch-ladies = awesome. Remember when I was an enchantress for Halloween?
