New Fragrance Oil Order

I got a big shipment of fragrance oils today and most of them are tried and true, the ones that sell well year in, year out. But I can't resist trying new ones and today I got the most incredible Lavender Ginger blend. It's so awesome, perfect for people who love lavender and even those who don't, because the lavender is barely there, just enough to soften the zip of the ginger. I can't wait to soap this one!

Tonight I made a scrumptious pasta dish with a luxurious, creamy sauce made from evaporated skim milk, pumpkin puree, gorgonzola cheese, fresh sage and nutmeg, mixed with penne and sauteed onions, garlic and shitaki mushrooms. OMG. It was heavenly, but a lot of work. It wouldn't have been so bad if I wasn't also trying to make homemade bread and boiling a chicken for the cats. Yes, we boil a chicken once a week for the cats, then portion it out into freezer bags for the week. We love our kitties around here!

Hi Steph! Wow, your meal sounds amazing - I love making homemade bread, but don't always have the time for it. There's something horribly seductive about the asiago garlic loaves at the store. They're never as good, though! Your pumpkin pasta sounds wonderful too.
I can't wait to smell the new soaps!

OMG that asiago cheese bread makes me weak...good thing it's so expensive most of the time I won't splurge on it :D
