Getting close to my goal of being able to walk to the nose gracefully. We got lucky like lottery winners Wednesday. Surfed Blackies. Looked kind of junkie when we got there. But, upon the parking enforcer's request, had to money in the meter. So, decided to stay and surf with the rest of our surf mama's clan. It was so fun. I walked nearly to the end of my board on three waves. The water was crystal clear. The waves were long and peaky.
I have been baking a lot lately. Made dinner for a friend who just had a baby 2 wks ago. Made her family chicken pot pie and apple crisp. Then last week, made dinner for a friend who's parents were in town. Made vinegar roasted brussel sprouts, these baked potatoes you slice up, dress with oil, butter and garlic, then roast as well as chicken. So delicious. I've been wanting to make granola bars and these look pretty good. I also rented a bread making book from the library. I want to get the best, most simple recipe down. On the Deliciously Organic blog, I have also made her chocolate granola. It is amazing.
I also finally have all the ingredients to make my own laundry detergent. Can't wait. You only need three ingredients: Borax, bar soap and Washing Soda. The last was the hardest to find. We picked it up from Walmart yesterday. I try to avoid that place because why is everyone so angry at Walmart? Is it they type of person that shops there? Is it the mob mentality with it's overcrowded isles and over sized shopping carts? Too many low prices?
Found some cool egg decorating techniques to try out. So pretty. The cupcakes are also from Martha Stewart. I'm such a sucker for holiday crafts.
