Coconut mayonnaise.

Welcome to 2014.  A happy healthy start to a brand spanking new year.  I've got a couple of days off so I've been whipping up a storm in the kitchen.  Double batch of soap, cream of asparagus soup from our very own asparagus, basil and pine nut risotto from our own home grown basil ('s bright green).  

Oh I'm such a legend.  What a woman.  My husband is so lucky.

I even got to researching and making some yummy looking morsels from organic coconut oil...I love coconut oil, and it's soooo good for you.  I tried my hand at coconut yoghurt.  That was a major fail with a capital 'F'.  I had the damn light in the oven going for three days trying to ferment and set the stuff.  Goodness knows what the electricity bill is going to be.  And my coconut mayonnaise...OMG...we had it last night with our salad.  It was absolutely dreadful, as hard as the hobs of hell, impossible to get out of the jar and we just about cracked our teeth on it.  All that organic goodness didn't even taste nice.  What on earth was I thinking? 

So today I'm staying right out of the kitchen.  Going to crank up the sewing machine instead......
