Welcome to Friday!
How's your day going so far?
Since I'm eating lunch while typing this, I thought I would do a fave five on food.
1. Sesame Chicken. How the heck did I get to 27 years old and never had sesame chicken before this week? I like chicken. I ~love~ sesame seeds. Combine the two and how could it not be a hit with me? (photo credit to soocool.com)
2. Hot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches. It's a Rachel Ray one. It's simple to make and very good. Like a hot wing on a bun. I omit the blue cheese sauce, but Steve loves it. I dip mine in sour cream.
3. Garlic Bread. I could eat garlic bread every day of the week. I also decided I couldn't find a garlic bread that was garlic-y enough for me. I started making my own. And it's really easy too. Too easy, actually. I'm not too sure why I never bothered before. Weird fact about me: I don't like melted cheese on my garlic bread.
4. Pesto Tortellini. I had never had tortellini or pesto before I met Steve. It was the first dinner he had cooked for me. It not only was delish, but it won a spot in my heart.
5. Steve & Jen's Homemade Pizza. I don't have an actual picture of our pizza. I found a picture online. Steve and I decided to wing making our own pizza. It started out as a garlic and mushroom pizza with an alfredo sauce. That was good. The next time we added chicken. I think we've also added sausage and bacon before too. One day, I want to add spinach too. We also make a mean Hawaiian pizza too. We both want to try pizza cooked on the BBQ.
I finished up my notebook/journal (whatever you wanna call it) yesterday. I think it turned out rather cute. It's nice and simple. I didn't want anything popping off the cover so it can go through the abuse I have in store for it. I have a large Roots canvas bag I use to tote around our library books. Books go in and out of this thing a lot! My little notebook will get tossed in the lot too.The notebook was put together by myself. I used thick cardboard for the cover. I covered the cardboard with paper from Sassafras Lass' Hog Heaven collection. The trims used were from Vintage Yummy. Some rub-on letters and tiny alphas and I was done.
The hardest part of this notebook was sewing the pages together. I did it all with thread and a needle. I lost my piercer months ago (I think I accidently threw it out in a mound of paper trash). Every hole was poked with a needle.I have never wished for a sewing machine more than I did making this. But I love the outcome. And see? I've used the book already. It has a few recipes jotted down to try.
Until next time...
