Let's make Rose Water

Soon it will be that time of the year again when the Roses are in bloom so here is a great way to make some Rose Water. We aren't going to drink it tho... we are going to wear it.

1 cup of distilled water 2 1/2 Tablespoons Vodka 1/2 cup of Fresh Rose Petals
10 Drops of Rose Fragrance Oil

Fill a sterilized glass jar with rose petals then pour the water and vodka over the petals and stir gently with a glass rod or stainless steel spoon. Add the rose fragrance oil and seal with an airtight lid. Store in a cool place for one week and stir every couple of days. Strain the liquid through a cheese cloth or paper coffee filter and discard the petals. Rose water should be bottled immediately in an airtight bottle.
Did you know that approximately 75 percent of all perfumes today list rose oil as one of the main ingredients? What does the vodka do in the rose oil? It is a preservative and prolongs the shelf life up to 6 months. If you make this without the use of the vodka use it within 1 month.
Roses have been around for a very long time wreaths made of Roses have been found in Egyptian Tombs. Even the Romans used to fill their pillows with the petals and the Greeks used to call Roses the "Queen of Flowers".

The worst recipe ever

Well I hope this qualifies for what Sandra has put me up to this time LOL...
Now she wants the worst recipe you ever had ...
This one hits home...My Husband is not much of a cook...I bet some of you can relate. Right?
So one night while I was still working I came home to a wonderful smelling stir fry...well the veggies were good it was what he put them on that just about killed me. Spanish Rice a Roni...and the two together do not mix! I have never been able to look a box of that in the face again. His excuse? We ran out of rice. Now what kind of excuse was that?

I'm trying to win a carved bird

She does the neatest carvings...So if I tell you and you run over there and post then I get two chances to win and if another one posts on there then I get three chances. You have to mention I told you to tho.
