This blog needs some happy. Let's talk about Mason Jars. I brought Mason Jars to work with me this trip.
I'm kicking myself. HARD. I should have brought jars to work years ago.
They make life awesome. Totally awesome.
I have a jug of carrot juice left over from port. I've been drinking carrot juice out of jars on the bridge wing. AWESOME.
I have some lime juice. I squeeze a little into ships water (which always tastes a little funny) and drink it out of my jar during watch. AWESOME.
I have yougurt, mango puree and, cardamom powder. I blend it up and make mango lassi's which I put in jars for my shipmates at afternoon coffee. AWESOME.
When I have left overs I just seal them right up. AWESOME.
I'm telling you, they make life just the tiniest bit more wonderful. They also are just pretty - especially when the light hits them on the bridge.
You totally wanna see another photo right? Except this time you want it to be more artsy with a slightly out of focus ocean in the background...
Mason Jars = Awesome.
