Big surprise... I like Flamingo's and flamingo things. I have a flamingo collection, including this whirligig we got just before we left Maryland but just put together this week. Whee! Then it broke...
oy. You can rest assured I'll be doing something to fix it somehow.
I like soup... make a big portion and have it all week as appetizer. This time I traveled back to the 70's into my high school diet years and made cabbage soup! I added a few things and am not eating it exclusively like I did back then, but it is delish!
In soup pot saute 1/4 olive oil, 2 minced garlic cloves, a large knob of fresh ginger minced... add a chopped onion and cook a bit. Add 2 chopped celery stalks, three chopped carrots, half a chopped red bell pepper and 1/8 cup cooking sherry and simmer.
Next add in half a sliced head of cabbage, 1 can tomatoes, 2 quarts of chicken broth, and spices.
I do about tbsp parsley, and half tsps of basil, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper and simmer til carrots are tender.
simple but good.
I finished Til Death do us Tart, the novel that includes some great recipes, and almost finished with the Baby Ganesh 3rd book in series on audio. Waiting for the next in Jude Devereaux new series due in one week.
I liked watching a lot of finale's this week, but sad they're going. We saw the last Brokenwood this season but that's okay as we have the new season of Midsomer Murders to watch this week along with the best British bakery, a million little things, Firefly lane, and Virgin River.
I am reading my night time e-books outside on the porch some now... maybe I can finish more books that way. Listening is my pleasure though, while I sew.
Sewing... how I love my little creative space. I've been hand sewing my tumbling blocks, but am machine quilting my latest for Joy's table scraps linky this weekend. Red of course! Scraps of course. More on Saturday.
coloring while I enjoy Home worthy videos on youtube... really fun home tours...
this is how this week's page started...
and how I finished it. I am enjoying seeing the colors blend and shadow
Short one this week...
I was chillin' with my best toy on the porch this week til I heard Mama call... Milo!
Wha?? I get my own pancake and scrambled eggs with cheese??? With almond butter?
Could you cut it up for me?
Mama: of course... this isn't my first time feeding you my baby!
Milo: I'm gonna have to say bye bye for now as I've got something to eat...
