Handiwork Update ~ Southwestern Egg Burritos
My youngest daughter emailed me this photo. I thought it was so funny I just had to share. This morning I certainly feel like that dog in the photo - still in my jammies, holding coffee, but with an ice pack instead of a towel.
The good news today, is that Daughter got on a flight yesterday (vs. today) and is in SC now. Phew!
Boy oh boy. Yesterday, and the night before, was not a day to crochet. I kept messing up.
Remember that #5 cotton crochet thread I bought a while back?
I was about to finish this pink one. However, with all the chaos I messed up one square. I had three squares crocheted together, only to find out I had to rip it apart. Needless to say, it's put it aside for a few days.
I did get this one made with blues and yellows. It's already being used in the kitchen.
I also go this one finished too. If you are looking for the pattern, it can be found in 101 Easy Scrap Crochet Projects, by Laura Scott. There are 3 different patterns.
I had checked this book out of the library before, but borrowed it again.
I treated the family to a big batch of Southwestern Egg Burritos.
It's basically Serrano pepper, bell pepper, and eggs (and salt and pepper). You can top them with salsa and cheese too. I opened my last jar of home canned salsa to top mine with. Yum. I do think I will add more than one hot pepper next time.
I'll be flipping through the book again today. I did see a Mexican Casserole that is very similar to the Cheddar and Chilie Egg Casserole (a Rachel Ray recipe) one we make (but with way more cheese in it).
Today I am thankful for:
~ the eggs the chickens are producing
~ the help we were able to obtain to get Daughter on a flight
~ coffee, of course
~ God's Guidance
~ my camera
~ instant photo machines
~ pen and papper
~ for those praying for my kids and us
~ quiet days
....now that I've had my morning blog fun, I must get back to work. Yesterday I thought those meat chickens were going to attack me to get their feed, ha ha!
