I had also purchased a jerky gun, which basically means you can use ground meat/mince to make jerky with the addition of spices and a curing powder which I would take to be something like a Prague powder and then squirts it out of a special nozzle to create strips. It is basically a medium sized sausage stuffer type gun with the addition of the special nozzles so I am looking forward to having a play with that too.
OH has to go for a suit fitting this weekend. My step-son is getting married to his soul mate shortly at the beautiful Orton Hall Hotel in Peterborough. I suppose I had better start looking for something nice to wear as well. No hat though; don't do hats as a rule.
I have also ordered some candle moulds so that I can have a go at doing some fancier candles to give as pressies.
I am also looking at the soap making as well. I thought if I started with something like the melt n pour it would help me get into the swing of things and then possibly brave enough to have a go at making my own from scratch. I have seen and smelt many beautiful soaps over the years and would quite like to be able to make my own for the house and for my own use; that rather appeals to me. Fresh linen i.e. soft comfy towels and lots of nice smelling soap. Lovely makes everything smell fresh and clean.
I am also waiting for a couple of kits a cordial kit and also a wine making kit. So we shall see how we get on with those.
Right things to do - lots to do.
Catch you later.
