This week has been a great catch-up week. I finished my socks plus another project, got ahead of the game with reading, and rocked the party with my a new recipe. Still excited and motivated.
Projects: The same night I finished the socks, I got an idea for the world’s laziest project. I was gifted some beeswax at Christmas time from a beekeeper friend. After reading up on homemade balms, I put the wax in a jar with coconut oil (1 part wax to 2 parts oil), and set it on a candle warmer. Occasionally, I’d walk past and swirl the mixture around. Once it was all melted, I took it off the warmer and let it harden. Best lip/hand balm I’ve ever had, with very little effort.
Recipe: This quiche was awesome. And with just four of us, it yielded some great leftovers. This recipe from smitten kitchen was outstanding. I used Joy the Baker’s no-roll crust recipe, and they were perfectly paired. My husband said that the crust tasted like it had pretzels in it.
Book: The Rosie Project (this one came highly recommended, and the kindle version is $1.99 at this moment)
Project: a collaboration with my kids inspired by this one
Recipe: These rolls will make a nice addition to some split pea soup I’m planning on for this weekend.
