Monday HOMEMADE FUN! Candles, Mayo and Bread!

A new week brings new adventure here at the Land house! Today we have had lots of fun creating homemade items! First project of the days was making beeswax candles! So easy and fun to do! The girls really enjoyed making there own candles and then adding little bits of wax shapes here and there to make it there own. Sammy got to add a beeeeee! Jason got to make one too with the bit of left over wax. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to be able to have him participate with us. We all really love having daddy around!
Next up was lunch! We found a really great recipe for HOMEMADE MAYO! So, we used that with our homemade whole wheat bread to make tuna sandwiches! The mayo came out so great, I don't think I will ever go back!! Here's the recipe ( I got this from a blog I follow called "The Grocery Cart Challenge":

Homemade Mayo

1 whole egg
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup canola oil
1 dash paprika

*Recipe makes 1-1/4 cups mayonnaise.

In blender, add egg, dry mustard, vinegar, paprika and 1/4 cup oil and blend on low 1-2 minutes.
Turn blender off, and scrape sides down. Turn blender on, and while it is running, slowly add the remaining 3/4 cups oil. Blend until the consistency of mayonnaise. Refrigerate in non-reactive container.

We finished Lunch off with some funny face plates and some "Mock wine" ( kooooolaid!) and had a elegant candlelight lunch! Hope ya'll are having fun too! Mondays don't have to be horrible if you throw in a little fun!
