Yeah, we're odd like that.
So, in honor of my stinky porch, it's time for my annual potpourri post!
For those who make it past our front door, this is the scent they are greeted with. A reward for their bravery. The scent that permeates our home from this blessed concoction can only be described as heavenly!
Joanne's World Famous Simmering Potpourri Recipe
5-10 cinnamon sticks
1 heaping tbsp whole cloves
2-3 bay leaves
1/2 sliced lemon
1/2 sliced orange
Put all ingredients in a pot of water on your stove. Simmer over low heat, checking regularly so that it doesn't boil over or burn out all water.
Disclaimer for moms of teenagers: This delightful treat will cure the smelliest of stinky-stenches. I won't give away ALL my secrets, but I have been known to get this pot simmering and walk it through my house. It has even taken away evil-stinky-teenage-boys-room-stink.
You know you want to make some.
