I've discovered I've got to put things here. I lose scraps of paper. My memory isn't that good. My housekeeping book is invariably in another location from where I am when I need the information (often in another state).

Salad Rolls
The recipe for this really good dressing/marinade is here. I marinated the tofu strips for a few hours then pan-fried them in a little olive oil. Lettuce, carrots, avocado, cucumber and tofu on a rice wrapper. (Yes, I do feel guilty with how many things here aren't local. The lettuce is from the front yard though.)

Laundry Powder
1 c. borax, 1 c. washing soda, 1 bar Ivory soap, slightly less than 1 oz. Fels Naptha laundry soap
Add food processor.
Mix about 1 T with water then pour into the washing machine detergent slot.
So far so good.

New Cider Batch
5 gallons of sweet cider from Detering's ($5/gal)
Beginning specific gravity 1.060
Down to the last 2 bottles from the last batch! This is an emergency!
