Art Shot Saturday – and a link

March 4, 2011

Cooking, Journal

Ok, I know I was going to write a rant, but it’s not fully formed or justified in my mind yet, so let’s get back to last Saturday when I was having photo problems. (I also know that these are not art shots – just pictures I’m too lazy to write text for.)


Marisa is a dang fine writer, and has a deep love of jars, which I admire greatly. She did a cool thing regarding caring for her wood utensils with homemade spoon butter, and wrote about it much better than I could ever hope to do.

All I did was take some pictures of my messing around.

Start with beeswax.  I happen to have a lot.

Add mineral oil and melt.  More oil than this.

I poured the spoon butter into little jars.  I need to give some jars away.

I didn't take photos of all the other stuff I oiled. This was it.

There.  Now it looks purty.

    My first thought was: “Why is Lauren posting a picture of laxative today?”

    Is that concoction good for any wood surface in and around the house, or is it meant specifically for kitchen utensils?

    My 1st thought was: “Did Lloyd pass out after taking too much mineral oil?”

    My 2nd thought was “Ewwww, now a picture of a big ‘ol block of dry cheese!”

    My 3rd thought was “Aha—see I’m not the only one with a spoon fetish. Nice collection Marisa!”

    But now I so envy the spoon butter & I don’t have any of the ingredients. 🙁 I think it’s time for a shower for Peggy!

      I can send you a jar! I thought of you the whole time I read Marisa’s article.

      Lloyd was hooking up the new modem on his computer when I took the pictures, and I kept laughing. When he asked what was so funny I just snickered, “Nothing.” I am a terrible wife.


  3. Marisa Said on:

    Yay, I’m so glad you like the spoon butter! I love that you poured it into smaller jars while it was still warm enough to do so (all the better for sharing).

    So, I didn’t read the blog, just looked at the pictures…
    Are you soaking cheese in Mineral Oil?

    Now I’ll go back and read the comments 🙂
