Here’s a bit of what went on here today.
This morning I decided to try listing one of my quilts on Etsy again. If you’ve been around here for a long time, you might remember that I tried a year or so ago, and just couldn’t get the pictures to load, so I gave up. This time when I tried, they had different picture loading (software?) and IT WORKED!!! I have one quilt listed on Etsy. I think I’ll try to put one new one on each morning until they are all listed on there. Here’s the quilt:
That was a pretty good start to the day! I had an appointment to get my hair washed (yay!) and that meant putting on real clothes. Eek. With Loretta’s good advice ringing in my ears (“you just get creative”) I had a certain intimidating piece of clothing (involving hooks and eyes ) on in no time!! It felt really good to have my hair washed. I have an appointment to get it cut on Thursday, and after that I really think I’ll be able to wash it myself. Tomorrow I get to take the bandage off, and if everything looks okay, the paper says I can take a shower (I’ve been taking baths with a plastic baggy on my hand.)
This morning I decided to try a recipe that I’ve had bookmarked forever. Yes, I was tired of not cooking. It was a little difficult to stir with my right hand, but not too bad. I tried Georgie’s chocolate peanut butter protein bars. Oh yummy. These are like a dessert, only nutritious! I followed her recipe, except I used vanilla protein powder, and that Justin’s chocolate almond butter. I used 1/4 cup splenda and 1/4 cup brown sugar for the sweetener. Ate one tonight and the rest are safely in the freezer.
Experimented with some more ideas I had for quilting. I am still pretty limited in what I can do because I can’t really use scissors or a rotary cutter very much. Don’t want to get too creative with sharp objects LOL. Here’s something I did with the strips, trying to see if I could sew them on a curve.
You guys! I know you’re probably sick of me talking about this. But while viewing a marathon session of Masterchef, I noticed that quite a few times these gourmet cooks would include “Puree of cauliflower” or “Cauliflower and parsnip puree” on their plates. Which gives new credibility to my mashed cauliflower. This last batch was so delicious I decided to add it to my recipe collection. Its so satisfying, it is much better than mashed potatoes even days later, and come on! At only 40 calories per serving, you can’t resist. Its one of those foods, like the unsweetened vanilla almond breeze, that tastes much richer than it actually is. Here’s my recipe.
