So all day today, because we’re crazy here at Homestead, Kyle Woodward, Bryan Lee, and I are all shaking little containers of liquid non-dairy creamer (Coffee-Mate, if you must know).
Why? My sister-in-law (a PhD and smart girl) once told me that if you shake them long enough, solids will start to form and you’ll eventually get butter.
Yes, from non-dairy creamer.
She might have been totally pulling my chain. Then again, I may be completely snowing Kyle and Bryan so I can watch them shake mini plastic cups of creamer all day long. Oh, I wish I were that cruel and unusual.
We’re giving ourselves until 5pm today to see what happens. Stay tuned for results.
I love being stupid.
Update: Well, we haven’t opened them yet, and I left it on my desk for the weekend. We’ll shake again on Monday then open Monday afternoon.
Update again: Well, after several days of sporadic and not very vigorous shaking, we opened them. No solids at all. And worse yet, Bryan and Kyle actually pounded their creamer. There is such a thing as going too far, guys.
Now we just need to get an actually butter churn and fill it with non-dairy creamer and see what happens… Any takers?
