a weekend in the kitchen but not just cooking

randy and i spent a lot of time in the kitchen this weekend, but we were not only dealing with food. i can’t say just what all we were doing, become some of our activities included making christmas gifts. i don’t considering myself to be craftsy, but trying new recipes (whether for food or for soap) is fun. if you have a non-crafsty craft idea, send it our way!

venison chili - was enough for 3 meals :)

bought the ingredients for chili in bulk so i chopped 'em all up and froze them in quantities for a single batch of chili. got the idea from my mom - she used to freezer our garden veggies in quantities for chili. great idea!

randy came back from the store the other day with ingredients to make laundry soap - the guy is on a soap making kick! he made a batch yesterday and it smells great and works well, too. the final product is in the jar: homemade lavender laundry soap. well done, randy!
