Olive Oil Mayonnaise

I  love olive oil mayo! I ran out in the middle of a yucky rainy day and decided to make my own, instead of going out in the damp. I looked through a few different cookbooks and took the best of each to come up with this recipe.

1 whole egg, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. sugar, dash of Old Bay Seasoning, 
2 TBSP vinegar or lemon juice, 1/2 cup vegetable oil and 1/2 cup olive oil in one measuring cup.

In blender add egg, salt, sugar, seasoning, vinegar and 2 TBSP of the oil. 
Pulse 5 or 6 times to blend smooth.

On the "blend" speed, SLOWLY DRIZZLE oil until thick and creamy.

You may have to stop and scrape, once, when it gets thick, 
so it will blend the rest of the oil.

Spoon into a jar and refrigerate immediately. It makes a little more than a cup. I don't know how long it will last, because we go through it in a week. 
I have made this every Saturday afternoon, lately. 

Sew Many Projects

Busy hands...

Dish cloths 
(had to do something with all the scraps from the rag quilt)

 Fall quilt top for DD
(She chose the fabric and helped cut)

 Rag bag for the garage
(DH loved this and worked on organizing the garage for a whole day)

 Rag quilt finally finished!
(I am still finding strings in the washer)

I have a few Christmas projects on the sewing table and will post about them when I can get DD to get the pics off my phone. The phone and my dinosaur laptop are nowhere near compatible...LOL! 
Have a great week!

Stashbuster Potholder

Just a quick little job to use up some leftover terrycloth from the rag quilt project, that I am procrastinating on finishing. This was my inspiration.

My DH is home for a week's worth of vacation, so I doubt much will get done around here...LOL!

Have a great week!
