Lemon-Coconut body butter.
Homemade lemon infused oil, and coconut oil
coconut oil to mixer and pour in a bit of lemon oil.
Whip for a few minutes until frothy.
Refill old canning jar, and ta-da... Lemon-Coconut body butter.
Great for slathering on when you get out of the shower, or rubbing into your heels and putting on a warm pair of sock before bed. Sure helps my hands stay crack free too.
Easy to make, affordable, smells wonderful, and best of all... great for your skin!
Spencer was asked to play his bagpipes for a funeral in a neighboring town.
He's played at quite a few funerals now, and he feels honored to be asked.
Here he is with members of the VFW.
Spencer embraces our Scottish heritage, and taught himself to play the bagpipes.
He's very, very good. Maybe it's in the blood.... his 3rd great grandfather was from Scotland, and played the pipes too.
Scottish shortbread sounded good this weekend , so I made some.
Pressed into a pie tin, scored and ready for the oven.
Recipe : Lemon Shortbread (You may double the recipe if you like)
1/2 C. butter
1/4 C. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1 1/4 Cups of flour
*Cream sugar and butter together. Add lemon zest and stir in to butter mixture.
Add flour a little at a time, and stir in by hand.
Dough will be crumbly, so work it together by hand, until smooth.
Divide dough in half and press into pie tins. Prick dough with fork, and score.
(You may also cut dough into squares or rounds)
Bake in oven preheated to 325 degrees, for about 14-15 minutes, or until the bottom edges are just starting to turn golden brown.
When cool enough to handle, cut along score lines with sharp knife.
