We tried a new recipe last night: Sausage and Veggie Stew. A can of beef broth, a can of stewed tomatoes and a cup and a half of water were brought to a boil on the stove. I added two cups of frozen diced potatoes, a package of cocktail sausages, and a bag of mixed vegetables. Once it started boiling again, I put a lid on the pan and let it simmer for ten minutes. It was delicious!
On a scale of 1-10: 8
What I liked: Ease of preparation, good flavor
What I'll change for next time: Cut the cocktail sausages in half before adding them, use diced tomatoes instead of stewed (that was Hope's recommendation because she didn't like the big tomato chunks.)
I have another new recipe in the crockpot for tonight's dinner. I hadn't planned on two new recipes in one week, but we had to rearrange our dinner menu because of schedules. I'll let you know how tonight's experiment is.
It's TUSAL time, hosted by It's Daffycat. On or about the new moon, I take a picture of my collected orts (leftover threads and yarn scraps from WIPs and FOs) and post it. Why? Because it shows progress, especially if you're slow like me and take a long time to finish things.
My thread ort jar is off to an impressive start thanks to all my starts for the SDUCJFC.
My yarn ort jar isn't too bad either; no crochet finishes yet this month, but I've been doing a lot of piecework. Working every day on my 2015 blanket helps fill the jar.
I have three more cross stitch starts under my belt:
#18: Women Are Like Tea Leaves
Stitched a little of the teapot
#19: Horse of a Different Color
Started stitching the belly
#20: Last Minute
Stitched some of the hourglass sand.
This one is interesting because it calls for half stitches for the sand.
Makes for fast stitching.
Thanks for reading and looking.
