Yesterday I made homemade pink marshmallows. They were delicious and soft and fluffy and pretty. Had I made them last week and cut them out in heart shapes they would have been adorable Valentine’s tokens for teachers. So, a very successfully homemade version of something people usually buy at the store.
Today I made homemade granola bars. Not a success. I followed the recipe in this month’s Everyday Food, but I ended up with not enough of the sticky stuff (brown sugar, honey, peanut butter melted together) to bind it all together. (Confession: I didn’t have enough because I cooked it too long and some of it was burnt and I couldn’t use it.) So I’ve got a container filled with granola crumbles and chunks. Not successful as a bar, but awfully darn tasty. It would be great on yogurt, in cereal, with fruit, etc. In fact, Paul is on his way home with vanilla ice cream right now and I think it will be delicious on top of it.
I made a treasure map for Robo-Pirate. I was going to rip out the stitches for the waves because I didn’t like how they turned out, but Clark’s face lit up and he said they loved them, and that’s more important than perfect stitches, don’t you think? Note: I bravely put in a shark fin!
I found the perfect item for my photo scavenger hunt today: #45 Soft. I took a close up of the downy bottom of hen. Check out this funny hen turning around as if to say, “why is my door open and why are you taking a picture of my butt?”
