I got another quilt laid out yesterday. I have been working on market bags for the shop but I decided to work on a quilt yesterday. Part of the reason is that I knocked my pile of nine squares over. It means more quilts truly need to be made!
I was very pleased with this in the pictures I took. I find that taking the picture gives me a feel for how the quilt will turn out. An art teacher friend pointed me in that direction.
I will be updating the shop today. And on Etsy too.
I realized that I have not been posting recipes. I have been making new things but it has been a lot of throw this and that into a pan and have something incredible come out! There was a bit of leftover porterhouse in the refrigerator, so I decided to make tacos. I sliced the meat and marinated it in lime juice. Oil, smoked salt, black pepper, paprika, a pinch of chipolte, a pinch of ancho, olive oil, and agave hit the skillet. After it was heated, I added the meat to warm and be seasoned. On mjurstut with cabbages and Russian dressing. Oh so good. It made a horrible mess and all the mess was lovely.
Even my bread has been that way. I have been making what is best classified as an Italian but I have been dumping water, olive oil, salt, and flour in the bowl with starter. I add enough flour to make a soft dough and go from there. Usually there is a bit of whole wheat. A white whole wheat but it is a whole wheat. I am going to have to figure that one out because family will want it I know.
Writing down the recipe is sometimes the hard part. I use so many of my own recipes and rift on them. I get teased continuously. For example, I have realized I like the caesar dressing heavier on the anchovies and less if no vinegar. I try to make notes. Even on my own blog but sometimes. And then I get fussed at that it does not taste like mine. But the shortbread. Family and friends think it is just me on that one.
