Interesting about the magnets.  So far I've not had any problems.

Here's some progress on my Research Project:  Beautiful new counter given us by our neighbor who makes furniture as a hobby; this part of kitchen is nearly done, just some touchups and trim needed, and of course the floor:

Beauty!  Smiley

Here are the nifty patches meowari sent; an owl yokai, Vincent Price on TV, and a tiny fantasy bird.  I like them a lot.  Vincent will add to the Vincent gallery in the Cabinet of Curiosities, the owl may live in the kitchen, and the tiny bird will probably become a fridge magnet to add to my collection. 



And here is the lavish amount of patch-making supplies, which I am not showing in detail because some are immediately slated for other swap projects.  Wink



Thank you meowari!   Kiss

9  Prickly Pear Liqueur in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Ludi on: June 16, 2015 05:16:49 AM
An infused liqueur made with Prickly Pear Cactus fruits from my yard.  Smiley

10 whole cactus fruits
1 pint vodka
zest of 1 lemon
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups water

Singe the spines off the fruits, cut them up and run them through a food mill to smash them but not break the seeds.  Any other smashing or chopping process would probably work.  Put in a wide-mouthed jar with the vodka and lemon zest and steep in the dark for 10 days.  I experienced a time anomaly and only steeped mine about 5 days.  Oh well!   Shake the jar vigorously and then strain the pulp from the vodka.  Discard pulp.  Boil the sugar and water until thick syrup forms, let cool.  Add to vodka, and put back in the dark for 20 days.  Strain again, and decant into a booze bottle.





Prickly Limeade

2 limes, juiced
8 oz water or soda
2-4 oz Prickly Pear Liqueur (to taste; more liqueur makes a sweeter drink)

Over ice in chilled wineglasses, serves 2.  For more booziness, add Vodka.

That would be a truly tiny room!  Shocked  Not sure I can work that small...but, I'm willing to try....

Here's the exciting space you get to work with, Wulf; duct hole in the ceiling of the Cabinet of Curiosities:




I know I had asked for a door, but if you have other ideas, let's talk. The hole has some depth to it, which measurement I can provide.   Smiley
