For the current challenge "The Sea" at Tag Tuesday, I made a couple of painted/ hand drawn tags . These were created from a piece of watercolour paper which had been sprayed with acrylic paint - blue, yellow and quinacridone gold. I then sketched over the top , trying to follow some pattern created by the splatter and then add some felt tip pen lines watercolour pencil to highlight the shapes. The tags represent the fantasies of the hidden city of Atlantis and a mermaid.

Margaritas sound like an exotic use for limes, but as a non-drinker, I have been looking for other delicious ways to use an excess of limes.
One of the most obvious ways was to make some marmalade. One kilogram of limes made a tester jar and 10 other jars. Not only does it taste good on toast, it will make a good glaze for ham and in other sauces.
To celebrate limes more indulgently, I also made individual lime cheesecakes ( although the recipe calls them pies) - two batches of these didn't last long.
And with the rest .... just a slice of lime in water because
Limes are a good source of magnesium and potassium.
