More Halloween Fun

I finally had time to learn some new beading techniques this weekend.

Naturally, there was a Halloween theme.

I’m not sure about the last necklace as the ‘BOO’ looks odd on the right-hand side. Ah well.

Until next time, stay healthy.

It starts with a village

We made a shopping trip to Michaels and added to our collection.

They are awesome when they are lit up.

Until next time, stay safe.

Halloween Begins

This last weekend, I decided to learn something new and started with my favorite thing: Halloween.

I love the buttons and hope my family love the end results as much as I do.

Hot, Hot, OMG

So my son got my husband watching ‘Hot Ones’. An interview show where the host and guest each hot wings with ever increasing hot sauce.

The sauces are rated on a Scoville scale, from pretty mild to your grandchildren will catch fire.

The hubbinator and son teamed up to show me Paul Rudd’s interview and gastronomic trials.

Then our son ordered an array of hot sauces.

They start very mild in the hundreds, then escalate to a thousand then 50K.

Until we got to “Da Bomb” which pegs in at 130K Scovilles. Holy macaroni. That sucker was hot for at least 10 minutes afterward. Or as my husband indelicately put it, he didn’t know his ass had tastebuds.

We are still 3 away from the top of the scale and our son plans to get the next one up for the holidays. It should be fun.

Until next time, stay healthy.

The food never tastes quite the way the picture of the recipe looks.

Start Again

When out rice cooker died, we bought an instant pot. So far, we’ve cooked a French toast recipe, ribs and hard boiled eggs. The French toast was good, the ribs could have gone a little longer, and the eggs were perfect.

And then it came time to cook the rice.

I was nervous. I read online so many different ways to cook the rice and the warning around each. In the end, we went with the rice setting since we were cooking white rice, we decided to give it a try. Aside from the little bit sticking to the bottom, it worked.

Which means now I am collecting instant pot recipes from my siblings who came before and have been cooking with the pot for a year or more.

Until next time, stay healthy.

Happy Labor Day

Here is the US today is Labor Day. The last holiday of the summer. Alas, while everyone is posting pictures of Autumn, we are peering into the blazing sun trying to see when the 110+ degree days will finally end.

It is easier to celebrate when you don’t have to be outside in the heat, unless you want to.

Either way, I hope you enjoy the day.

Until next time, stay healthy.
