Project 365 ~ 354

The boys had to make Hard Tack for a school assignment this week.  It is what the Civil War soldiers ate.  This recipe called for 6 parts flour, 1 part water.  You then cook it for an hour and let it sit for 24 hours.

Yep, it tasted as bad as you are thinking it did.

Project 365 ~ 353

We went out to see Christmas lights this week.  This house was decorated to mimic the house in The Christmas Vacation, one of my favorite movies.  It was covered front and back, had Santa and his reindeer, and even the garbage that was at their house. We could see it entering the neighborhood it was so bright!
