This is a quote from the book,  Why I Adore the Night,  by Jeanette Wilterson:  " I have noticed that when the lights are on, people tend to talk about what they are doing --their outer lives.  Sitting round a candlelight or firelight, people start to talk about how they are feeling --their inner lives.  They speak subjectively, they argue less, there are longer pauses."

Our New Year 2023 Raffle is a set of  6  handmade  '100% pure' beeswax dinner candles. They produce a bloom, which is a snowflake looking film over the pure beeswax. This is a sign of purity and is cherished by beeswax candle connoisseurs. Pure beeswax candles purify the air because they release negative ions as they burn, eliminating dust, and other toxins from the atmosphere. They also burn longer and hotter than paraffin candles, and their light is the same spectrum as the sun. This is why people find candle light so relaxing and calming, and they  give off a beautiful  natural scent. These candles are 11" x 7/8 ".
 

THE WINNER IS INV 1992

It's the sauce that is what's missing in food served in restaurants here in Ecuador! As one reviewer said, "Sauce, and sauciness are keys to an interesting life."

JANUARY
RAFFLE

This is a Loyal Companion Dot Grid Notebook created by the esteemed company, Archer & Olive.  

 

You can use as a 2022 planner, or for any purpose.  The interior pages are Kraft Paper and they do not bleed through because the pages are ultra thick. It is the top of the line in planner notebooks, and is in the standard recommended size which is 5" x 8".

If you have never used a dot-grid notebook this will be something new for you in '22!  It's the same as a lined notebook except that you become slower and more deliberate in the letters you put down on the page and you can see everything you write clearer. Journal keepers generally like to use .3 thickness pens.

There are lots of books on ways to use them as planners and here's one of them: Dot Journaling,  by Rachel Wilkerson Miller.

This month's raffle is a bunch of Grade A Madagascar Vanilla Beans, along with a locally obtained lozenge-shaped glass container so that you can make your own vanilla extract and also have it look attractive.  There are 15 vanilla pods in this raffle so you can make more than one bottle, and you can top off with more vodka or rum as you start to use it so that you will have a continual supply.  It's so easy to make that it hardly requires a recipe but "jes' fo' fun" here's a link to Paula Dean, 'yawl', who's makin' some vanilla extract. She drips with southern charm and is a lotta fun even though she's not what you'd call a health food proponent, ha! But do a search online and you'll find videos of lots of people who are showing you how to make your own vanilla extract.

Very Basic - Paula Dean

This month's raffle is your choice of two exotic dried fruits:

                 Organic Turkish Figs
                Jumbo Medjool Dates
             Organic Turkish Apricots
   
Here's one way to supply yourself with lots of nutrients, such as, calcium, iron, copper and magnesium and potassium, although, to be totally honest, we already know that you don't need to know this for us to make you want to have them.

If you'd like to do something different you can make your own bars by processing with ground nuts and oats; or make your own granola. You can roll the dates in coconut flakes or blend them to any almost kind of beverage or salad dressing.



 

AUGUST RAFFLE

Nothing can take the place of coffee. That's a fact. But there are a number of herbal alternatives worth experimenting with.  This month we have your choice of two different ones:  Ayurvedic Roast or Teechino French Vanilla. Ayurvedic Roast is  non-acidic, contains no caffeine, and it has ingredients that are antioxidants and that promote relaxation. Aside from roasted rye, barley and chicory it contains Ashwagandha [sy that 3 times fast], Brahmi, and Shatavari. Just low boil for 5 minutes or use a percolator or drop coffee machine.  You can blend the Ayurvedic Roast to smitherieens and then strain it. Teechino has organic carob, chicory, ramon seed, and vanilla. The French Vanilla flavor is our favorite.

We'll be experimenting with others such as Instant Mushroom Coffee, and Mocha Mushroom Whey and may have another raffle with our favorite custom blend of different herbal coffees.

We hope that the winner of this month's raffle enjoys Ayurvedic Roast.

JULY RAFFLE

JULY RAFFLE

This month's raffle is good for you. Seaweeds have lots of trace minerals and B12 as well as iodine which is good for your thyroid. 

What is included:  Roasted Nori Half Sheets, Dulse Flakes, and Kelp. 

Dulse flakes and roasted nori are great on baked potatos, pizza, popcorn, salads, etc. You can crumble and sprinkle on things you like to eat. If you are feeling adventurous you can make nori rolls.

Kelp, though, is not for sprinkling on food. You soak a medium size piece piece or two overnight, then take a small piece, cut it up in strips. and blend it very well with anything you are drinking.  It has no taste when blended into a smoothie.  You can also make Japanese soup, like miso soup or udon soup with noodles.

 

JUNE RAFFLE

Once you get the hang of it please make a habit to order alot and often from USA Valet (...only kidding).
