The great thing about living with teenagers is you just never know what is simmering in that brain of theirs!!! Last night, I heard some interesting noises coming from the kitchen and this was the scene I walked into........
Fortunately, now that I am working on my photography skills (and I just got a new lens
in yesterday...yay!) my camera was at arm's length so I was able to quickly document this
creative process from (almost) start to finish!
Here are the three tools she was using....there may be better ones to do the job,
but these seemed to work pretty well when combined with
a lot of elbow grease!
And you need a fork......a cheap, restaurant or cafeteria grade fork...
one that is easily bendable! We happen to have a good bit
of these on hand as I bought extra silverware from Sams at one point to feed my
very, large extended family when they come for holidays!
Now the fun starts....you bend, twirl, whirl and roll
:: Create ::
And in no time at time at all, you have a FUNKY, FORKY BRACELET...........
Dinner the previous night was a big batch of ducks...and as I was inspecting my photos for this post, I noticed that fork....I am pretty sure it is now finished with it's serving duties and is
attractively around Sara's wrist today!
We are in the midst of duck hunting season and my husband is an avid duck hunter....
thus the reason for many a duck dinner these days....sometimes I feel like Bubba and his shrimp from the movie of Forrest Gump - we eat Duck Gumbo, Duck stew, Duck breasts sauteed, Roasted duck, Duck jumbalya, Ducks in gravy over rice.....you get the drift!
And since I am on the topic....let me introduce you to my "backbreaker pot".....
the best cookware in the world. I named it the backbreaker because it literally weighs about 25 pounds empty and when I cook in it, I have to have help getting it in and out of the oven or I can (and have) thrown my back out trying to lift it! But, I have never met a pot that could bake anything to perfection like this one.........it is worth it's weight in gold!
