|Homemade mayonnaise ingredients. I thought my arm would fall off before I finished my adventures and misadventures in whisking up my first homemade mayo!|
|My mayo "broke" when I switched to the immersion blender in hopes of making it thicker. So, I just whisked another egg yolk and then slowly whisked the separated mayo in to create a new emulsion. Phew!|
Though the end product turned out great, homemade mayo won't keep as long as the commercial stuff, so I'll probably stick with Hellman's!
|Guess what? The final product tastes like mayonnaise, only fresher!|
$GREEN$ and GREEN thoughts:
- Dishwasher not working again! Broke a few weeks ago, and on the advice of a repairman, Hubby replaced the circuit panel to the tune of 100 bucks! Now it's gone berserk again!!
- Yesterday Hubby made $8 on aluminum cans at the local recycling place. He also took apart my folks' broken coffee pot and was able to recycle some of its parts.
- We filled up our gas tank early in the morn yesterday. Saves money because the gas expands in the tank, so pumping in the afternoon means less gas for the money on hot days.
- Hubby continues to "top off" the gas tank. I've read this is bad for the environment, as it pushes more gas vapors into the air. Old habits die hard though and he won't quit topping off the tank, so I may have to start pumping myself. He'll think I'm nuts!
