I’ve made mayonnaise from scratch before. I stopped because I had been making it in a blender and my blender started scrambling the eggs. Therefore, not good mayo. Today, I realized I could use my food processor. I also found a recipe that called for a whole egg, not just egg yolks. Great option for me since I really am not fond of separating eggs. My 9 year old helped me, and unfortunately, she isn’t great at listening to explicit instructions and started adding the olive oil a little faster than I preferred. I also erred in that I put the olive oil in the wrong measuring cup and it didn’t pour nicely. I got oil all over the counter. Oops! Overall, it came out fine, and will serve its purpose of giving me mayo that I can eat that doesn’t have soy in it. I made a chicken salad sandwich for dinner so that I would have some protein. I’ll probably hard-boil some eggs tomorrow so that I can make some egg salad. I will need to stop by the local veggie guy and pick up some celery to add to it.
As for the chocolate that I made last night – definitely a dark chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate, but this is even a bit much for me. I’ll definitely be limiting myself to one of these a day. Any more than that and it will be too much to handle. it also tastes better cold out of the freezer. I will need to think of how to tone it down a little. But, they are definitely edible and will get eaten.
