Good news is I made some homemade mustard.
Bad news is all they had were a few yellow mustard seeds and a bunch of black

Good news is I was able to make enough to last me 4 yrs.
Bad news is it is very pungent.

Good news is tastes okay with honey.
Bad news is the honey won't get the yellow stains off the counter top :o

Good news is I learned baking soda is how to make it light and creamy
Bad news is the baking soda couldn't cover up too much vinegar.

Good news is cooking the jars in a big pot did just fine to seal
Good news is that I know to never use black seed again

And there you are more good news than bad news so I win!

Ain't that the truth. Maybe I should make some pancakes every time I get sad like the ihop commercial and just slather it in honey. I feel better just thinking about it.

Hey! I discovered my happy place

Thx beachbirdie.

At some point in my life I knew I had to change my thinking. I was 245lbs. And always miserable, hungry and depressed. I heard someone mention that in order to be happy in life, we needed to be less like a thermometer and more like a thermostat. A thermometer is a direct reading of the environment we are in but a thermostat senses the environment and changes it to favorable conditions. That is pretty much the best we can do.

I have grown up a lot since seventeen, the first time I was actually hospitalized. Eventually, I learned that a positive attitude turns life in your favor. I finally realized that I should Choose to be happy despite what my life is like. What is the point of having a negative mentality, just to torture yourself even more?

Without hope I would never had stumbled upon this forum and gotten myself set back on a path to self-embetterment. Everyone on here is very selfless and helpful. It is a good environment for hope. :)

Well feel free to learn from my mistakes. When you make catsup make sure if you use balsamic vinegar, that you read the FRONT label to make sure it is balsamic vinegar and not balsamic vinaigrette. Woopsy I grabbed the wrong bottle. Oh and do not shop when you are hungry or cook something newfrom scratch when you do not have an abundance of time. One more thing, if it says it takes "T" amount of time it is really T x 2 if you have not made it before.

Just thought I would mention it in case you get your butt in gear. Haha I was using voice keyboard and it exed out the last 3 letters in the word b***. Really? Get with the times doggonit. And to think they are supposed to be cutting edge. HA! Sharp as a cotton ball.
