I saw this sign when leaving bowling the other day.
I took it as a sign to finally begin sewing my blocks into rows this week. I have a very large living room.... and this quilt makes it look tiny! This is the progress so far... lots of rows ready to be sewn together.
and of course a picture with my models who are on spring break starting today.
I was thinking this would go to my niece..... but I have a feeling it will end up as a quilt for my bed!
As for dinner...... does anyone else completely forget to take things out of the freezer like I do? I have been thinking of chicken Marsala all week and still have not taken the chicken out. Well today (yes, I know it's lent - we had fish last night, does that count?) I decided since I have the mushrooms, pepper and onion that need to get used and canned tomato's in the pantry, I would try making chicken cacciatore in the crock pot.
Now I have fond memories of Mom making this. She always used the electric yellow skillet to make this and used bone in chicken breasts. I remember this pan since she always made this and the sausage gravy in this pan... nothing else! Just like she had certain bowls to make certain things. To this day if we are referring to the small metal spatula (which all 5 of us kids have) it is the lasagna spatula! I just have to boil up some noodles around dinner time and hopefully we'll have a tasty meal tonight. No recipe - just a little of this and that thrown in on low to cook all day. I also plan to try some french bread that Ellen has been making. It looks so good I am going to give it a try. The recipe can be found here. I see the leftover bread being made into french toast on Sunday morning and the second loaf will pop into the freezer until next week to go with some lentil soup.
