    Default Day in the city and home made cooking

    Okay so we went for a short trip to the city and I took the camera. I only took two photos and both were of DH.

    We've been married for 13 years this year and I never once realised how weird his eyes are. I don't even know what colour to call them.... any suggestions?




    Oh and this morning I was having a slice of bread and butter and nearly gagged cos the butter was so gross so this afternoon I made my own. Its so yummy. The buttermilk will be used in pancakes tomorrow morning for breaky
    Add to that home made beef stroganoff and it was near perfect. I had to take a photo and vintage it up!

    His eyes are awesome! Great capture! I'd say they are a unique hazel! He must be so fun.

    his eyes are really cool! I'd call them "thunder gray" I think of hazel with a lot more brown.

    and I like the food shot. cool on the homemade butter!

    LOL thanks guys. I'm still trying to work it out.

    Butter is easy.

    The 'recipe'

    Get a litre (or Liter for those from the USA ) of cream.... I use whipping cream but pure cream is good too

    Whip it like you would to put on a cake.... just don't add sugar

    When its really really thick, add salt... you can keep it salt free if you plan to cook sweets with it. I'd say about 3 teaspoons for a litre of cream but you can add to taste.

    Just keep beating and beating. it will start to curdle and separate.... you'll then be amazed as as it separates the butter turns a lovely yellow colour keep going until its making splashy sounds.... the liquid... well thats 'buttermilk' which I use in cooking or baking for pancakes etc so don't throw it away

    Get a clean piece of cheesecloth or even a brand new disposable dish cloth and place it over a small bowl.... gently pour the contents into the cloth until all the contents are in then lift up the cloth. bunch it up at the top and squeeze all the remaining liquid out.

    Shape into a cube and keep refrigerated. Like any pure butter it will need to be softened to spread.

    OR..... place half a litre in a large jar with a 1.5 teaspoons of salt..... make sure the lid can be real tight and get the kids to make the butter by shaking the jar... taking it in turns... they will love it.
    I use to do this when I ran an after school care centre.


    Let me know if you try it and of course would love to see the results

    what we've done is add clean marbles (3-4 of them) to a jar with the cream inside and then shake it - it helps churn it into butter.

    I love his eyes! LOL "Thunder gray" is a great description. That's so cool how easy it is to make butter. I would love to try that someday as a fun kid's "project."
