too much half & half!

that's not true. there may not be a thing as too much 1/2 and 1/2. i've recently been stumbling into lots of 1/2 and 1/2... way more than i could ever put into coffee (which, i'm laying fairly low on the coffee drinking right now). so i had to get a little adventurous about how to use all that delicious high fat milk.

Caramel Custard.

make (hard) caramel. check.

pour in the custard- basically 1/2 and 1/2 and eggs. plus a little sugar. 

bake til perfectly browned.

Creamy Potato and Parsnip Soup... check!


when all else fails and you still have too much heavy milk... make cheese

Caramel Apples. 
to spite making too little to actually bring to a potluck (the original goal)- caramel apples turned out pretty easy to make. (plus i used coconut oil, not butter, so they're freegan. worked great) also- if ya wanna make caramel- i watched this great little set of videos about how to tell when its done without a candy thermometer. win win win! 

that's all. fatty fatty fat food.
