Homemade modeling clay from I Troll Martha Stewart So You Don’t Have To. My mother used to make something like this but simply used flower, salt and water, which would dry out quickly.

Plans for this week include homemade macaroni and cheese and those malt-ball ice cream bombes from the current Martha magazine. I loooove them because they qualify nicely as Food That Looks Like Other Food. I’ll take pics of the ice cream if it turns out!

What I am thinking about: using liquid starch as a temporary window treatment to frost our upper kitchen window so we can get light into the room but not feel like the neighbors above are watching. I can find a lot of projects involving liquid starch and tissue paper to form images or a stained glass effect, but in this case I would prefer a thin coat of white (it’s a fairly dark kitchen). But I want to make sure I can get it off very easily when we move out. I cannot find any instructions on how to clean off when you’re done. Soapy water? Where do I get liquid starch? If you have any advice, lemme know, thanks!

I know it’s been around forever but just this last Christmas I saw the recipe-in-a-jar gift thing (I know, where have I been?). I love this thing!! You can find a lot of recipes on this page. I saw an Irish soda bread recipe in a pint bottle for St. Patrick’s Day.
