You'll be happy to know I got every single errand done yesterday that I had to do... yep, that's right, every single one!
I made a new recipe for dinner that turned out oh so yummy. I found a website called Crafty Gemini. I found it as I was searching for sewing tutorials and found her recipes also. If you click on "tutorials" you will get both sewing and cooking videos; I made her sofrito and then tried the Southwestern Chicken Quesadillas. They were delicious; Mr. Sunflowerz rated it a keeper recipe.
I had never heard of sofrito before... it is the base for many Latin American dishes, and is really just a mixture of onions, garlic, peppers, cilantro and spices. I couldn't find some of the peppers she used, so I just made up my own combination using serranos, poblanos and yellow peppers. I did as she suggests and made up a batch, put it in small freezer bags and then popped them in the freezer. It turned out really good and not spicy at all; think next time I will add a little more heat. I totally forgot to take pictures or I would show you what it looks like. Definitely give this one a try!
I'm able to crochet again (yay!) and got a couple more rounds done on my Dad's afghan last night:
Since I will be seeing my parents this weekend for Mother's Day, I am going to try to get this done by then.
Speaking of crochet, have you all seen this?
I stumbled upon this yarn at Dollar Tree yesterday for the whopping price of.... you guessed it... $1 a skein! I had never seen yarn in a dollar store before, so I got a couple of skeins to try it out. Have never heard of this particular brand of Caron yarn before, but it's pretty soft. Am thinking it would work good for making granny squares or hexagons.
I am off to do... well, I don't know what exactly, but I'm sure I'll find something! Have a most excellent Tuesday.
