scrapping, sewing and cooking

Enjoying some of the things I enjoy.

I recently re-found the blog of Gabby Fekete. I am a sucker for recipes and I started clicking around on recipes in her "meal plan Monday" posts. Last night I made the desconstructed broccoli and cheese stuffed chicken breasts. Super yum. I added fresh mushrooms which while tasty, released a TON of liquid making the sauce way too thin. I have printed the recipes for the Deen Bros lime chicken and also that garlic butter burger. I might doctor my burger up tonight in this fashion since those are on the menu already.

Sewing:
I made a new camera strap which turned out beautifully using these directions. I wish I had done the ruffle in the same fabric as the strap though. I may offer this one up as a freebie if someone is interested...just as soon as I make a new one for me. I tested it with some older scraps but feel confident enough now to use something good from my stash.

Messy dishtowels.

Can you tell I learned how to make and attach ruffles?!

Certainly not showcased at it's best on the ironing board but you get the idea.

Scrapping:
Two super fast pages using either quickpages or templates for my 2010 book. I can whip these out so quickly that it's making it easy to tell our story. Yes, 2009 is not yet done and in my hands, and my summary pages for Feb and Mar are not yet done for 2010 but what is done, makes me happy.

And oh yea, all my hardwood floors are mopped. Shew. A wet spring + dirty puppy = super mess. Pin It
