I've been a very bad blogger lately, but time just seems to fly by and I keep intending to post and then the day is over. Still running through sicknesses here - I'm thinking I have a sinus infection, though I've been on antibiotics, they just don't seem to be working and now I'm sick again. My little guy had the stomach flu and is finally back at school. (As long as I don't get that - I'm fine - I don't do well with anything stomach related!).
On to some yummy food things I've discovered in the last week. Last Friday Collin and I met some first grade friends at the park - it was an amazing day and we took lunch and ate there and played for like 4 hours or something. One mom brought these wonderful looking (and smelling) sandwiches for her kids (poor Collin had PB&J). Talk about feeling inadequate! They were this roast turkey on some beautiful bread with tomatoes and maybe other stuff. Collin wouldn't eat a sandwich with tomatoes, but turkey - yep. So she e-mailed the recipe and here's the link. She makes the turkey breast and then just keeps it for the week and slices pieces off for sandwiches every day. I haven't tried it myself yet, but if it comes out like hers - it's fabulous! I think I'll make it this weekend.
The next recipe is one I saw at Carrie's blog and it looked so yummy. It's Chicken with White Bean stew from the Everyday with Rachel Ray March issue (which I happened to have), so John went to the store on his way home and I whipped it up in no time when he got home. Really good and comforting (and quick and easy!). Loved it! Carrie's picture was much nicer, but here's what it looked like (with bad lighting - better lighting to come in the new kitchen...hopefully!)
Last, but not least - some crafting has been going on. I am FINALLY sending my Potholder Swap package out to my partner Laurie. It's been done for a while, but I have not made it to the post office, so off it goes today! Hope she likes them! (again bad lighting - it's rainy and grey out today, so my house is really dark). I loved this fabric! It's by Anna Griffin - called Elsie's Kitchen and it's very fun! I used the Denyse Schmidt oven mitt pattern from her book and they were great to make - I really enjoyed doing something new and different!
