    we used to dig it out of the creek.

    No creeks at the current homestead.

    I'll have to remember that when we move this summer. Nice little creek at the bottom of the hill on the new property.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    It shouldn't take much searching. We only had about a foot of top soil before hitting clay when they dug the foundation. Clay should be plentiful in the creek bottom.

    The 5 y/o and Mommy saw a recipe on Sprout while I was sleeping this morning. So, your recipe will be the next one. I didn't care much for the one they used today. No oil -- sticky.
