Bacon, etc.

I just received a book I ordered: “Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking and Curing” by Michael Ruhlman and Brian Polcyn. I ordered this book to assist in my quest of learning how to make EXCELLENT, YUMMY, AMAZING bacon myself.

I just read the first part of the first line of the introduction and am liking it already! “A book devoted to animal fat and salt…”

How much more could one ask for?!!

Tie Dye Cupcakes

I made these today.

Tie Dye Cupcake

They are too cute. Used a Duncan Hines white cake mix (NOT yellow). Made it according to the package directions. Divided the batter into fourths. Dyed each fourth a different color. (I used the Americolor dyes). Then, using my smallest scooper, one color at a time, scooped some of each into each cupcake liner. Use white liners so you can see the colors. Do not stir them. Made exactly 18 cupcakes.

Then I iced them with vanilla buttercream and put festive sprinkles on the top. Easy and amazingly cute.

Another great shop hop!

My friend, Reidun, Erin and I visited all 12 quilt stores on the Blue Bonnet Shop Hop. Reidun’s first year. 🙂 Lots of great quilts and inspration! We also visited a fabulous native plant nursery in Medina. Absolutely beautiful!!!! Everything was in bloom and a little bluebird came out of its nest to show off for us. Loved it!! Thanks Ernesto!

Presidents vs. Aliens

I have become hooked on a game for my Iphone called “Presidents vs. Aliens”. The game asks questions about the presidents and you answer from a choice of four presidents. If you answer correctly, that president’s head becomes a weapon to take out the aliens. If you clear out all the aliens in a round, you earn a president for your collection. Three right answers in a row earns a temporary special power. Try it!!
