1) The back tire blew out and no less than 5 gentleman had to stop and try to help me. The donut is hidden in a super secret hiding place and could only be released using a bit of kung fu magic and a few Chuck Norris moves..and 50 calls to the husband who didn't have his cell phone on him. I was half-way through learning how to change the tire over the phone, when 2 men from Virginia stopped to finish it up for me.
3) I burned my finger tip so bad I had to keep my finger in ice water for over an hour.
4) I had a 10-minute-long conversation with a 65 year old East Texan Farmer this week. We needed information so we could publish in the paper what produce will be available at the market this weekend. I still have no idea what he said. This is what I heard, "Mmh der der dat der der spinach. Mer den der der ad ber der turnips." At one point, I believe he was referencing a competitor because I heard the word "butthole". I could have had a more meaningful conversation about farming with this guy...
5) I made these and let the kids have some. I call them "So you want to clean up poop for 2 days" muffins. Damn you almond flour...
Since all of the above statements are 100% true, and they all happened in the last 2 days, I decided to work on a few items to tip the scales in my favor.
Homemade nutella for the win!!! This is the recipe. I made it in my cuisinart and it took about 5 minutes!
I keep it in the fridge, but when it warms to room temperature, it is the same consistency as the store-bought stuff!
I used soaked and dehydrated hazelnuts and just added sugar, vanilla, cocoa, a little coconut oil and salt
I used some of the scraps from the t-shirt bags we are making and made a fun scarf
Jason said it looks good enough to pass as a "real" scarf but I am skeptical. For now, it will be in the costume bin :)
Here's to hoping the scales tip even more in my favor this weekend. And that the foodclub members forgive me for my ridiculously large mistake...
