Mike Haasl wrote:For anyone traveling to Wheaton labs, the boots apparently love cheese, butter and milk.  I brought 5 lbs of organic cheese and it disappeared in a day.  Penny brought a couple gallons of goat milk and it also disappeared in two days.  Butter appeared one day and was demolished in short order.  So if you want to butter up some boots, now you know how



J. Richardson had mentioned a desire to have some vegan alternatives on hand as well and the following would just be purchased items.....others may be able to weigh in with home-brewed offerings.

Cheese is getting there.....and while not cheap, our preferred types available in the US are Violife (cheddar and provolone slices and cream cheese) and Miyokos (spreadable cheese) and Forager (yogurt and sour cream) brands.  The oft-used ground almond flour with salt and nutritional yeast remains a good ground parmesan substitute. Everyone has their own 'palate favorites' but these seem pretty decent to our household.

'Butter' substitutes in the vegan world are almost too numerous to count and range from new products from MAJOR industrial brands to new kids on the block.  Lots of oil alternatives in this category....my wife likes Earth Balance and I rotate more around what's available when I end up at the store.  (Side note on waffles.....just seems best to use one of these "hard" oils both in the batter and melted onto the griddle as well for these crunchy comestibles.)

Milk....  Again, so many offerings.  Right now we're addicted to Chobani oat milk (unflavored plain extra creamy type) and I can make a reasonable facsimile in the blender from intact or rolled oats.  Very versatile from coffee creamer to cake batter to ..... waffle batter!    When a thickened cream-base is needed for cream-soups or gravy or alfredo-type sauce, quick-made cashew or almond milk in the blender works wonders and tends to "auto-thicken" without added starches or flours.

Allright! Maybe cold mornings won't be quite as rough! You are quite welcome.

Good afternoon, patrons!

We started an Amazon Wishlist today in case you're ever feeling like you want to send something to us but don't know what we might want at the moment. Here is the link to our Wishlist! We'll do our best to keep it up to date with helpful things for our projects.

I haven't had a chance to go searching through Amazon for these things, but a couple things that have come up in conversation that would be helpful for future projects would be:
- curved chisels (we have tiny ones in the carving set, but we could use some larger ones - 1/2"+ etc.)
- sewing supplies for fabric and leather (we have a sewing box that needs all the bits that go inside)
- a soldering iron (I used to work with a Weller that was the bee's knees)
- insulated work gloves and maybe some wool liner gloves
- neatsfoot oil (leather oiling)

If you happen to have any of these things sitting around and want to relocate them to our hands, we'd appreciate that immensely!

- Nine

It's already open. It might not last the night. The licorice chews are already gone. πŸ˜‚

We received wonderful a package in the mail yesterday from our pal Shannon, one of the PDC students this year.
Josiah had a cup of the coffee this morning and I had a cup of the green tea. Thanks so much Shannon for the deliciousness 😊

And we can’t wait to see you again soon for the RMHJ work trade!
