I have been delinquent in my grocery shopping duties and we've pretty much emptied the larder of breakfast cereals both hot and cold. Yesterday for breakfast I took out the last of the frozen Costco Butter Croissants and drizzled them with melted Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips. Oh, my.
Today's breakfast was Apple Oven Cake - quick, easy, and delicious. It was more of a crepe rather than a cake. I came across the recipe a few days ago while catching up on my Sunset magazines (Jan '13). I followed the recipe as written but I would make one correction. Instead of "serves 6" I would change that to "serves 2".
In addition to food I've also used up the last of my favorite lip balm. I had been purchasing Happy Acres goatmilk lip balm directly from the source but the Templeton self-serve farmstand has been emptied out and looks abandoned. No lotions or potions, no lip balm, no goats. I just hope they're on winter hiatus and will be back in the summer.
In the meantime, after a little research on Etsy, I ordered a Lip Balm Kit from CandleLynnSupplies which included everything I needed to make 10 lip balms with my choice of flavor. It was difficult to choose a flavor: Creamy Caramel, Creme Brulee, Vanilla Bean . . . or Monkey Farts. Of course I chose Monkey Farts after reading Jana's description - "fresh bananas, juicy grapefruit, kiwi, juicy bubblegum and strawberries with a hint of vanilla". It was surprisingly fast and easy to whip up the 10 tubes. Taping on the tube pictures took a little longer.
I got the idea to cover the tubes after watching a video on Martha Stewart making lip balm. I cut little squares of yarny pics from my last KnitPicks catalog and taped it on the tubes with 2-inch packaging tape. I think Martha would be proud.
Oh, and the flavor? Fruity, not farty at all.
