    Just tested my banana honeycomb custard after a weeks steep, and already is really good, the banana has mellowed down a bit now, so not overpowering it anymore, was going to test it each week for a month, but my wife tried it and loved it, so she has stole the tester bottle, guess need to get scales back out tomorrow and do a bigger bottle.

    Also tested the sugar cookie that was posted in here, was surprised, for only 2 flavors, it is really good, see a bigger bottle of that being mixed tomorrow too :)

    Nope, not freshly. I was planning on it soon, it still SMELLS like lassi. I wish I'd known how strong the green mango is (one on one flavors) (Which is a flavor you would LOVE honestly, it's very tart but tastes like mango. It's also VERY strong I may have to do some dilution and like, well, some adding the rest of the recipe without adding any more sour, it's a bit overpowering. I think I will bathe shortly and I do have some vaping tasks to do and whatnot, I am not good for much requiring brain power. I do need to tame that Brunhilde tank before it attacks me in the night. Heh.

    Caramel and licorice is the something I couldn’t put my finger on. And I guess licorice is the “fruit” I was tasting. I don’t taste coffee which is fine by me as me and coffee vapes have had enough of each other lately. This is really unique. Do I taste a touch of honey? That may be the caramel.

    I vaped it through detailing the inside of my car. It wasn’t even real bad but that took forever. I have a Toyota rav4 with no leather seats. I miss my leather seats. I miss my heated seats. I had a Chevy trailblazer for over 13 years and that thing was fancy. I loved that car but I thought I’d try a Toyota and the TB was leaking oil and it was having issues. I’ll wash it tomorrow as I’m hot and tired. Whew.

    Fran, did you mix the yoghurt drink yet? I was thinking about doing that tonight but was having a hard time deciding what fruit to add to it.

    I bought Molinberry's melty caramel a while back. Poured some of my aged vanilla/cream into a 5ml btl and added 6 drops of the caramel today.

    It might need help from some other caramels but first I wanted to try it alone in a recipe I know well.

    Me being, me lol... could not wait and just had to drip a little. It's tasty but I'll have a much better idea after a week or so. :D

    My rather simple vanilla/cream...

    FA Madagascar (vanilla classic) 3.5%
    FA Vienna Cream 1%
    FLV Cream 6-8 drops (it's strong flavor)
    INW Shisha Vanilla 1%

    It's nice by itself but also serves as a good base for many other flavors.

    For a vanilla change-up/brightener I'll add 1% FW French Vanilla.

    When I'm feeling like a darker earthy vanilla I'll swap the FA Madagascar for FA Vanilla Bourbon 3% and raise the Vienna cream to 1.5%.

    There are other vanillas/creams/custards I swap in/out all the time.

    I'm not into sweet juices so I generally don't use any sweeteners etc.. Besides creams can do that very nicely.

    I don't want to give your whole post a "funny" because most parts were serious ( I think) but the line above really cracked me up.

    Haven't tried it. I've had bad experiences with other chocolates either having a weird plastic taste or just being off.

    Fran, and others, like WF Chocolate Chunks, VT Chocolate Mousse, VT Dark Chocolate and MB Glamour Chocolate.

    Next order I'll pickup WF chocolate chunks, VT dark choclate and MB Glamour choc.. I recently bought VT choc. mousse but haven't tried it yet.

    Life it runs out. I grabbed a bunch of flavors to work on my Mango Lassi. It is definitely gonna have to be a dilution due to the unripe mango (which is not candy at all, it tastes like the real thing and it is YUMMY but also is strong as all get out, I would still use it in the recipe and I think it would work at 0.5% or less.

    Then I was like, "I'm gonna drown out the mango with some other mangoes. I made a third dilution of the mix, it is fixable. In one, I am going to up mango and the various cream/yoghurts I use, in one I will combat with sweet mango only and maybe a smidge of my eggnog mix but like a TINY bit. The 2nd one, I am just gonna up the Indian mango and creams. The third one, I am going to try and balance what I have. It's all out waiting but I had to go to dollar general, and I wanted to do yoga upon my return but I decide, eh, too much, too soon. The husband says I look better, fever is down, and like I am HAPPY I have decided for SURE I think " WV 'R US." There is so much more to happiness than money. The hobbit is so happy he just wants to love on me. Then my mom texted me "How am I doing" so I sent her the link to "Bury a friend"
    billie elish bury a friend - Bing
    (Not really safe for work the video anyway)

    and told my mom she could read it and well I would provide relevant details. Including how I did not know how she survived 5 years of high dose steroids. Etc. And my plan to live to Appalachia and be happy. Because in Appalachia let me tell you "YOU are YOU." People will come at you with guns and large dogs if you demand they change for society's comfort. I told the husband it was job numero uno. I told my mom I was slightly better. She watched the song, laughed, and said, "Oh that good eh?"

    Once I defrost I am gonna have fun playing around with my mixes and it was very important since I was in the scary garage, well I MAY have found my best one shot, here is hoping but I also got out spotted dick I mean I LOVE that and also it's hard (for me) to get my supplies out and like, do very few things. I am going to have to take careful notes on the lassi since I am doing a dilution.

    Ooof. That is gonna be hard. I have steroid brain mush. I KNOW I asked the husband once if it was Saturday but I forgot the answer, and like, well, I had to check my calendar. Glad it is.

    I have decided on taking extra ambien and benzos all at the same time (I mean a reasonable amount) in the dark room next to the husband and vape and beverage if needed but JUST not getting up.

    Posts like this make me realise how feeble my taste buds are. Like I've tried using various vanilla flavors and I really can't tell any difference. I generally throw some French vanilla and sweet cream or graham cracker in everything. I tried different amounts of them but it didn't seem to matter.

    There are some flavors that really come through for me, like marzipan and ginger. That makes me think it's more complicated than just weak taste buds. I can't taste strawberry at all, that one is true for a lot of people. Fruit did nothing for me for a long time, they all seemed weak and tasteless, but now I'm starting to use a lot of fruit flavors. Especially Mango and Papaya. Part of the story is taste buds recovering from smoking but it's been 6 years for me so I should be past that by now. Maybe an expert in how taste buds work could explain it.

    I just discovered raspberry, through trying Bronze's recipe. I'm loving the raspberry. Going to make a couple more mixes with it sometime soon.

    Today I decided to start putting up the swimming pool. It goes in a fenced off area behind the garage which had turned into a jungle. Vines grew up the fences and spread out so I had to cut them down. Last year I didn't do anything with the area next to where the pool goes. The weeds were taller than me and assorted vines were growing through them. I cut down a bunch back there and got into poison ivy. Hauled the brush into the woods across the road. Tomorrow I have to go over the actual pool area. The tarp I laid down last fall got blown around so weeds grew where the pool sits. Need to rough up the surface and level it. I should do all that every year and it wouldn't get so bad but the last couple of years I was babysitting a 5 year old GGD and got behind on yard work. Right now I hurt all over and I've got ivy rashes on my hands and forearms. Even sitting in this chair hurts.
