This week....

I have not only been having fun with the elf! And playing with my adorable puppy! I have made soap! The white one is my plain ol' goats milk soap and the brown one is called peppermint patty ☺ It looks like a brownie and smells like peppermint! The hubs thinks it looks gross but smells good, I will share the recipe once it's ready and I can try it!
I was also pleasantly surprised that my tomatoes ripened in the window. Yummy! I'm going to make chow chow with the green ones. My mom and I love chow chow on bean chowder ☺ Hopefully the recipe I have is a good one!
And for those of you who like the elf pics, Snowball was found watching a movie with Flynn Ryder this morning! Have a great day everyone ☺

  1. Herman is going to havea movie night next. Last night he drew on the boys school pictures with a dry erase marker...they screamed this morning! lol

    The soap looks awesome..I want to learn how to make it. Only I don't have a goat. : (

    Have a good one!

    1. I don't have a goat in milk yet! I bought frozen goats milk from the farm where I got my female goat. She is pregnant so milking is in my very near future :)
      I want the scream from my child, she isn't too with it in the mornings!!! I may do something shocking tonight!

  2. The tomatoes look wonderful. I would love to have a fresh one.

    1. Oh Beth, it was like summer in my mouth delish!!!

  3. Hey Kelly, Your soap looks great girl, can't wait for you to share the recipe. I'm looking forward to making soap soon.

    Okay, what is chow chow? I've never heard of it.

    P.S. I responded to your e-mail :-)

    1. I will post the plain soap recipe, it's a keeper. Chow chow is like a relish, at the store you can get it mild or hot so I might add a poblano pepper to mine. I got your email ☺

    1. I picked all of the tomatoes before the last frost we had a few weeks ago. I was suprised when they turned red and they are soooo good! I'm going to harvest my collards tomorrow, and I have a great looking head of brocoli that's ready, I can't wait!

  5. Hi Kelly, I have never tried to make soap . . . oh, wait a minute that is not true . . . I tried to make old fashion lye soap once, over 50 years ago. Mine never hardened, so I had this bucket full of thick goop (I ended up using it for laundry soap). It was not a pretty sight :(
    but it did get our clothes clean.
    I never tried making soap again, LOL
    Yours look wonderful :)
    Be sure an visit next week and enter my give-away.
