Recently,a friend of mine let me know that she had been to one of our local grocery stores and purchased rhubarb. Now this girl, ME has not had rhubarb in YRS and YRS. I missed it in the worst way. So as soon as the hubby got home I was off! Little costly at $4 a lb,but TOTALLY worth every penny in my eyes.
Strawberry Rhubarb Crumb Bars. I cut down the sugar by half and the butter by at least a 1/3. Try it if you like fruit bars and you will not regret it!
this reference. Don't you love the name rhubarb? It could make a really good quilt name hey?? I digress.
This next food that I am going to submit you to is not a favorite of the boys in my house. I,on the other hand will eat it just about every day. They are good for you too ya know?!
I put the other half in an empty container like this one. It must be a white one. You can add a piece of onion too,but I usually don't. This will keep your avocado fresh for the next day or the next. You will have a slight brown discoloration,but I will skim that off the top with a knife. Avocados are a staple in my diet!
Now this next favorite of mine is a given if you read my blog,but I have some more to show off so here we are!
While on the subject of our back yard.....
Meet our mama killdeer that has taken up residence in our yard and will probably be there for 24-48 days until her babies come out of their temporary home. I discovered her by accident when Ayden and I were playing tag one day. I almost walked right into her! Then I got an earful! I read that they will actually sound out K-I-L-L-D-E-E-R in their squawks. To protect their babies,they will fake a "broken: wing too which I have seen a few times to date.
Besides snapping pics of eggs, I ordered some more flannel for the other top that hopefully will come by Wed.
~makes it SO soft
~at the starting position , no need to pull the threads up to the top as they will be covered by the other quilt top in the end--get me?
~the soft flannel makes it a smooth,easy ride while quilting
~if you match the thread to the flannel,it's all good!! no boo boos showing;)
~ also,no matching the two quilt tops so all those blocks are in the same position on both sides which is the real reason why I did this in the first place
Today, I printed off the templates for the Lucky Stars June BOM,picked out my fabrics to include a Kona solid and new pink print. All of the templates have been cut out while watching and LOL during this movie . Melissa McCarthy is a RIOT!!!!!!
Hope you enjoyed learning more about me:)
