Homemade Mayonnaise

Give it a Whirl Thursday
will be a weekly column
documenting triumphs and
failures of frugal projects.



2 egg yolks
12 oz veggie oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1-2 tsp Dijon mustard
salt and pepper

Whisk together yolks and a pinch of salt.Add one drop of oil to yolk and whisk until incorporated.Continue adding one drop of oil at a time until each is incorporated. Be patient it takes a few minutes. After a quarter of oil is added, add lemon juice and beat.Add rest of oil.
Add Dijon mustard and salt and pepper to taste.

**This has been on my to do list for a long time, but in all honesty I didn't want to make it for fear of taste. I am happy to report there is not much of a difference. I was very pleasantly surprised. I will not be buying mayo again.**

  4. I remember when I told my daughter the ingredients for homemade mayo. Yick - she said. Nothing tastes better than the homemade! and it isn't that hard, either. It spoils you against the jar stuff :)

  5. I grew up on homemade mayonnaise. In fact for years I didn't know you could buy it. I thought all moms made it. Homemade mayonnaise rocks. Happy Foodie Friday.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.

Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
