Isn't that one of the best feelings in the world? To make something to eat and it turns out deliciously. Congrats, and on to other meals.

Great news Alix! The first year of college is hard enough, so that is doubly impressive. Congratulations to her.
I have to brag a little about Himself. He's not much of a putter-er, but he will play around with his plethora of tools on occasion. Once upon a time I got a really nice, long-handled olive wood coffee scoop from Green Mountain Coffee. After years of use the bowl part snapped off the handle.
Enter my own "Woodrow the Woodsman" guy. He got a piece of wood off our firewood stack - oak! Then went down the basement to "play with his saw". OK, I knew he was doing that because he'd show me the small boards and other pieces he was cutting and planing. But even after the saw was silent he'd still vanish to the basement for longer than it should take to grab a bottle of pop. Whatever.
Yesterday night he comes up out of the basement and hands me this coffee scoop he made.
The bowl is a little rough (oak is REALLY hard!) but it measures a tablespoon exactly. It's one of the sweetest things he's done lately.
Bet the coffee will taste smoother too.
