I've been feeling guilty because I haven't felt like spending much time up at the barn with my babies.... (stop laughing, Juri.) Sarge and all the rest of my feathered friends will eventually get over it, as well as Daisy and Edie, although they are all in the process of pouting just to remind me of what a sorry sack I am for being sick.
From my sewing room:
I'm still tweaking my prototype pumpkin... I wasn't happy with the stem the pattern called for so I've been experimenting with a new one. Hopefully a pristine pumpkin or two will be emerging shortly, and I can feel good about giving one away!
(I'm probably the only one who feels this way, but a new fat quarter stash makes me smile...)
From my kitchen today: I'm making chicken salad from a leftover rotisserie chicken. (I heart leftovers, don't you?) For those of you who are wondering about how the Crisco on the roast turned out- it seemed to help, because even though I bought the "cheaper" cut of roast, it came out of the crockpot very tender on top, where as in the past, the part of the roast not in the water got sorta dry and tough. I don't know that I'll do it again, because I usually use the bag-n-seasoning way of cooking a roast- I think it's much more flavorful than a crock pot. Oh well, trial and error, I guess...
I've got a lot of blogging to catch up on, so I'll be dropping in at your place soon!
