Just blended black rice into rice milk; I'm curious to see how the color changes in soap! I'll have to look for @Dawni 's triple rice recipe (took this photo before straining). It's burgundy like my cabinets.Last night I made rice for dinner (just water and rice, nothing else). After leaving the rice pot soaking off to the side, by this morning, all the sticky rice grains were nice and swollen, and easy to strain out of the soaking liquid. After a quick SB-blitz with some distilled water, I strained off the solids, leaving me with nice white rice milk.
My rice milk is now waiting in the fridge for me to make some of @Dawni's Triple Rice Soap. I've only made it unscented before. This batch will be scented and set aside to cure for an upcoming market. Haven't decided on the FO yet...
My husband graduated from Auburn, so I’m all in, even as painful as they like to make football season.We are an Auburn family (mostly). My husband is an AU fan, and so are my kids. I'm an LSU fan, but Auburn is my 2nd favorite team....
I taught three of my oldest friends (from summer camp) how to make soap and found myself scolding “GIRLS! This is VERY DANGEROUS!“ Yes. Stressful.My sister is visiting for the first time since COVID. We made soap together! I thought teaching someone how to make soap would be fun. It wasn't. It was stressful!
I have to agree with that! The first class that I did, one mom asked to bring her 12yo daughter and the daughter's best friend. She assured me they were "very responsible - not silly like most 12yo girls." I reluctantly agreed that the mom could work together with them to share a crock. I emphasized that she needed to supervise them carefully as I would be busy working with the entire class. "No problem!" she assured me.I taught three of my oldest friends (from summer camp) how to make soap and found myself scolding “GIRLS! This is VERY DANGEROUS!“ Yes. Stressful.
I was okay with teaching my eldest son to drive, but turned over driving lessons for my granddaughter to my husband.We won't talk about teaching kids to drive
Loved San Antonio! If I were to make a permanent move to Texas, I'd want it to be in San Antonio. It's my favorite Texas city, although I do also really like The Woodlands. And my favorite doctor is in San Antonio and I go back periodically for check-ups. Plus Kitty Baby adopted me while living in San Antonio, and because she's a Texas cat, I like taking her back to visit her old stomping grounds.
OMG, how scary! I am surprised you even agreed in the first place, but what was wrong with that mom not taking charge? I guess she didn't really understand the power of lye or she would not have let them do that. Seriously, it's like they need some kind of scare tactics like the movies they showed us in Driver's Ed when I was in High School. I know they don't do that anymore because they don't do Driver's Ed in High School anymore here in the U.S. (with the exception of perhaps only one school district in California), but if you're old enough, you know what I mean.After that, NO MORE TEENAGERS IN SOAP CLASSES.
Ah, your guest room is used the same as I use mine! My brother is coming to visit on Labor Day weekend and every time I walk in, I wonder where I’m going to put my soap and candle goods.I'm cleaning up my soap curing room (aka guest bedroom) as oldest son commandeered it this summer. He's at college now, so i have my space back. I'm also pulling out fragrance oils I plan to use this week since I plan on making several batches.
My mom said I have the best smelling guest bedroom she's ever stayed in.Ah, your guest room is used the same as I use mine! My brother is coming to visit on Labor Day weekend and every time I walk in, I wonder where I’m going to put my soap and candle goods.
From an Ohio State Buckeyes fan to an LSU fan, we can agree what a great quarterback and guy Joe Burrow is.
