saopy soaperson

I'm back as promised, with pictures from Christmas, and my newest obsession, soap.





I celebrated on the 24th, true Norwegian style. I watched three wishes for cinderella, home alone, the original of course. And I ate a delicious dinner.




Tofu with Sweet Cranberry Glaze, Sweet Potato Pie w/ Marshmallows of course, Apricot & Almond stuffing & Steamed Broccoli.



It was SO good. I ate so much food! I opened presents for hours, got stacks of fabric, and books. It was perfect!




My friend Shaun, who I used to live with when I first moved to KC, who now lives in Seattle, came and stayed with us on Christmas day, we played scrabble, did a 1000 piece puzzle, watched zombie land and I cooked savory tofu pastries, mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, sweet carrots and gravy! Delicious!

For dessert, vegan crepes and homemade strawberry banana ice cream.




I took Shaun to the coast the next day, and we had the most beautiful weather. It was such a great day!





So I've been wanting to make soap for awhile now, and I am so glad I finally did! So much, fun, so messy, and super easy to clean up!
Perfect!








All these and more are up for sale in my Etsy shop!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
xoxo

I love the pink skull soaps! So cute!

Can you share the recipe for the Tofu with Sweet Cranberry Glaze? I love eating tofu but have a hard time cooking it differently so I end up getting sick of it... If you have any tofu recipes you could point me the way, as well...

Thanks!
