Yep, I'm making homemade mustard. I've always wanted to try it & I recently came across a mustard making thread on one of my favorite websites. Seems easy enough. Plus, I *love* mustard. The mustard seeds have to soak for 48 hours, so all I've done so far is just get them soaking. I picked up yellow mustard seeds at Woodman's. If I like how it turns out, I'll search for the brown seeds to use in the next batch. I just *love* Woodman's. I can get a whole cartful of groceries for a hundred bucks. The selection is just amazing. They carry pretty much everything, so it's not a matter of if something is there, but where. The only thing I don't like is them bagging my stuff in paper, but I guess it makes up for not having to unload the cart onto a conveyor belt. {The ends of the carts flip down and the cashier just pulls the stuff out and scans it.} I also will be making my trusty chai-mix recipe, substituting splenda for the sugar so it can be a little healthier. Plus I can share with hubby, mom & and any other sugar-free radicals. I am so proud that I finished Tatiana's dress. I think it turned out so cute. I've already purchased more fabric to start on the next one. I think I'll be making size 4 this time though as I had to make too many alterations to this one to make it smaller. The girl is so stinkin' skinny!! I can't wait to post pictures of the mother's day album I am making for my grandma. It's about 80% done. I think it's so cute. Those are my Tuesday to-do's. Now you know what I'm up to.
