I decide to make my own vanilla extract. You order these beans and bottle, fill with rum, vodka or brandy. GB supplied the rum and vodka and the told The Engineer to go buy me some brandy. What?! I've been able to purchase booze since long before he was born! But, then again, he knows me well, I don't even know where the liquor stores are... (in this state you buys your booze in a state run store).
So I was slicing beans, two different ways, filling the bottles with booze, spilling it everywhere, getting it all over my hands and then I remembered.... Restoration Man is coming by this morning to pick up a flooring sample and he's going to see me as the drunken housewife at 9 in the morning. AK! I've been cleaning and scrubbing, maybe I should gargle with Free-breeze?
You can buy this stuff at Chinaberry.com along with great kids books and fun odds and sods.
