Spring break has begun

This is not what you are thinking. Well, if you are thinking that this is a very large bottle of cheap vodka, then you are correct. But this is not my plan for surviving Spring break! (Even as tempting as that sounds) It is being transformed into the very best Vanilla Extract. 

 Madagascar Vanilla beans, split open
(reported to be the world's best beans)
Add 3 beans to each cup of Vodka

Store in a cool, dark place. Shake every few days. In several months I will have really, really yummy vanilla extract for cooking. I can't wait to make home made ice cream. You can keep adding vodka to the bottle as you use some, then eventually add more beans. It's a renewable source.

Um.... I think it would be hard for me NOT to touch the bottle... Let alone add Beans! These days, I think my glass is half empty...
