Hello to you visitors from the 5-Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party!
My name is Amy Jane, and my blog is called Untangling Tales because I’m always looking at how things are put together and I’m an incurable storyteller.
I’ve been happily married for over 7 years, and have three children, all born in less than 3 1/2 years. I have the challenge and delight of staying home with them.
I don’t blog on a schedule, and yet I end up with a fairly regular output. ;)
I do try to post a new Tuesday Tale each week, and generally write about what’s going on in my world– whether that’s listening, learning, reading or relationships.
And words. What is said and how it’s said always catches my mind.
To get an idea of the spectrum of topics I cover you could look at the “Favorite Posts of Year 2” on either side of this one (the links are at the top of this page).
What else I write and do are covered fairly well in my More About pages at the top of my sidebar.
As a story-lover I find myself enjoying stories of all kinds, including novels, real-life, folk or fairy tales along with movies and even some television.
My husband and I try to be vary careful about what we consume, but we really enjoy the good stuff we find. (In Defense of Movie Dates is my justification of this “non-interactive” activity.)
And here’s a nice drink my whole family enjoys, as a “take-away” for visiting my corner of the party :)
One warning: I’m an “artistic” cook more than a “scientific” one. I’ll give approximations but I’ll never guarantee your tastes will match mine. So assuming whatever I offer is merely a starting place, you’ll bring it to your own perfection.
- 1 heaping cup of strawberries (we use partially-thawed strawberries since fresh usually aren’t economical here in Alaska)
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup sugar (3/4 cup if you prefer to taste the tart)
Pile into a blender and add water until it’s 3/4 full— to make mixing easier.
Once the ingredients are chopped, mixed and frothy you can pour the mixture into a pitcher and add water to the 2-quart line.
