Sisters Share It All: Pinterest Challenge Progress Report

March 5, 2013

Okay, accountability time.

Two weeks down, two projects done.

First up, was this avocado coconut ice cream from Some the Wiser:

I made it exactly as she instructed except that I used a regular boring lemon instead of a fancy Meyer lemon. And it was very delicious.

I actually made another avocado ice cream this week too, because Bart’s sister and her husband were visiting and she can’t eat dairy. I made this chocolate/coconut/avocado ice cream which was also excellent (but I’d leave the dates out next time because I couldn’t get them to blend up completely (although I might have had better luck in the blender than in the food processor)).

So, double points to me for over achievement on that category.

And then points for procrastination on this one which I did yesterday afternoon in the last fifteen minutes of Ella’s nap (by which I clearly mean “quiet time” since there was no napping going on during that last fifteen minutes). 

This was an extremely gratifying project, what with it taking ten minutes to do them all and they also ended up looking 10000x better than they’d looked previously. 

Also, this is reminding me that I should go take them out of the oven where they’ve been cooling for the last . . . five hours. 

Now, onto homemade gummy bears. I’ve even bought a tiny little cutter so I can make stars (bears are boring).   

Check out Merrick and Landen’s progress:


And there’s still time to join up if you’d like! Just pick six pins and link up your post here!

    Please Please Please update on the gummy stars! I was excited to see that you pinned that recipe and I was wondering if it's worth the effort. Better to find out from someone else, right? 🙂
