I've been reading about making my own vanilla extract. I ordered the vanilla beans on Amazon and bought vodka at the store. I sliced the beans longways and put 3 in the small jar and 5 in the larger jar and filled them with alcohol. I'm supposed to shake the bottles every day or every week depending on the recipes I have read. It will be ready in 3 weeks or 3 months. Sounds like there is a lot of room for error so I'm pretty sure I can handle this project.
Another recipe I tried today was roasted cauliflower. I see people post recipes about it all the time so I had to try it. It was pretty good. I was supposed to cut it up in smaller pieces. I liked the roasted potatoes and sweet potatoes better.
I finally moved my white quail out of my storage room. It was getting messy in there with the sawdust and bird food. I decided to give my aggressive quail another chance with the 2 hens. They used to co-habitate just fine until I moved them in to a cage where they could see the golden quail through the wire. That's when the white male started beating up his females. So, I took a plastic dog crate and added a wire bottom to keep their feet clean. Maybe if they are in a more enclosed cage they will stay calm. It's worth a try. So far they like it.
I had another 5 quail eggs for breakfast on Saturday. I just can't get over how cute they are. I got 1 egg every day last week. I have 4 hens so I hope to get 4 eggs a day soon so I can share them.
And if it all goes horribly wrong then at least you have vodka!!
Ah yes! Half a bottle left. I forgot to shake them tonight so maybe I had better leave the vodka on the counter so that I remember!
