Lynne’s Sunflower Mayo

An astrologer recently did my star chart for free. He said, “It’s too bad you weren’t born 5 hours earlier, Dorothy. We could’ve had a hot, passionate relationship.” My mind often does work in strange tangents, I said, “Why do I have to be born 5 hours earlier? Why can’t you be born 5 hours later!” We are good friends and he laughed heartily. I’m not taking the responsibilty for that one!

 

Recipe of the Day – Sunflower Mayo

. My mayo recipe says Lynne, is: 2 egg yolks + 1 whole egg whizzed together in the food processor until nicely blended and a good lemony color. Then add: 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon or so of pepper (white if you have it, black if you don’t), 1 teaspoon dried mustard and blend for 15 more seconds. Add 1 tablespoon of lemon/lime juice or vinegar (I have been using the herb vinegar from Super Maxi and Dave loves that) and whiz for 30 more seconds. Then while still running start to very slowly pour in 2 cups of Girasol. About half way through, I bump up the speed on the food processor to high. This is nice and thick even before refrigerating and Hellman’s Mayo thick after refrigerating. I do measure out everything before I start so I have it to hand. It takes about 5 or 6 minutes to make a bit more than a pint of mayo that will last in the fridge for 2 or 3 weeks.

Word of the Day   –responsibilidad – responsiblity

  1. “It’s too bad you weren’t born 5 hours earlier, Dorothy. We could’ve had a hot, passionate relationship.”

    He really said that? Really? I wonder how many women that line actually works on when he “does their chart for free”…? Maybe I’ll have to try it out sometime 😉

    1. Ha ha! To me it sounded like he knew we didn’t have a passionate relationship,
      is how I took it.
