...Scout's Scout Update...

...Scout got the first approvals for his Eagle Scout Project at last night's meeting...he still has two more signatures and then I'll share his project idea with you...

~Have a lovely day!

...Bathroom Ceiling...Final Update...

...we had a really busy weekend...but we did manage to get the final coat of paint on the bathroom ceiling...

...so that's all finished...(kinda difficult to photograph though)...it's just smooth and white...and we did only do three coats...

...now on to the walls...a skim coat (or 2 or 3) over the entire surface...to repair the damage done by removing the wallpaper...ARGHHH!...

...Bryanna's Buttery Spread...

...One of the best things I've made with my new Vitamix Blender is BRYANNA'S COCONUT-CORN SPREAD...
...I printed the recipe and gathered my ingredients...nothing exotic at all...
...agar...corn meal and water...microwaved...
...then everything in the blender...
...blend on high...this is where the Vitamix is best...as it blends everything perfectly smooth...
...then just pour it into a covered glass bowl...
...and refrigerate until cool...
...it certainly looks like butter...
...a little bit firm...but spreadable...
...spread on toast...
...it was perfectly delicious...
...we tried it on some carrots for supper too...

...it was really, really good!...

...who would've though that you could take ordinary ingredients like coconut, and cornmeal and make a delicious spread like this...

~Have a lovely day!
