I think about it and I wonder if I would quickly become bored.
We voted yesterday, I have always voted, I was brought up knowing that it is important to vote.
Do your research, read, study and go vote.
I just took out a batch of salt jars, pigs, containers, does a jar need a lid? out of the last kiln firing, I love using mine and noticed last Christmas that all of them were gone. I made some for the gas kiln as well. I'll post when we have those out.
I am working on a tile sign for a customer. I am so slow that they check with me now and again to see if I am still breathing.
Next up for the time is the glazing.
I have been thinking about making some Biscotti and thought I need to look at the recipe shared with me by a fellow potter. We love this one but it does have butter. I think I am going to look for one with oil, more traditional. I would love to get them nice and crispy. Any one have one they love?
1 Cup Sugar
1 stick butter
2 eggs or 4 egg yolks ( I use 2 eggs)
1/4 cup milk or liquer
3 cups flour sifted
2 TBSP. baking powder
Preheat oven to 375
cream sugar and butter add eggs one at a time.
add dry ingredients.
Shape into a wide log on baking sheet that has been lightly greased and floured. ( or use parchment paper)
Bake- 20 minutes or until golden brown
turn oven down to 300
Remove, cool slightly and cut into slices.
Return to oven for 10-20 minutes
depending how crunchy you like them.
Our favorite variation:
decrease sugar by 1/4 cup and add 1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup orange liqueur
1/2 cup toasted pecans
cranraisins if you like.
Keep dry, I would love more sunshine if you can spare a little
