Just enjoying an absolutely GORGEOUS morning here with a cup of coffee, looking out the window in front of my scrapping table. Ok, my new Boston friends will hate me....but it was 75 degrees here yesterday and will be in the 70's all week. :) (I think the low the other night in Boston was 8...degrees) Actually, I love the cold weather and wish we had more of the seasons here in TX. I saw two of my hyacinth bulbs poking out of the dirt yesterday and the birds are chirping this morning. Ok, how's that for a Pollyana first paragraph? ha!
I am so excited that Lisa from Right at Home asked me to be on their design team for the store. :) A lot of the design team members are long distance...we just do everything via mail. Thank you, Lisa and Sharon!
When I was in Boston I bought MORE Foofala buttons. Yeah, I needed those so badly. When I got home and was putting my new things away, I decided to just pour all of my Foofala buttons into a big glass jar. So...that's what you see up there. Those are just my Foofala buttons...ha. But I use them! (the wire basket next to it is a black wrought iron basket that holds my inkpads)
So excited I'm actually going to a crop on Friday night. To scrapbook. Real pages. @@
Oh...and American Idol. :( I must say that I am not too thrilled with it this year. Boohoo! Last year as soon as we saw Taylor audition, we couldn't wait to see him sing every week. There is no one this year like that for us. I think my favorite guy is Blake, the beat boxer. He is fun! And I like Chris with the curly hair. But the rest were just...eh. We were saying last night that if Chris, Elliot, or Taylor were in THIS group, they could just sit back and relax. I hope there is a good girl or two in tonight's show.
Tonight for dinner I'm going to make BBQ Ranch Chicken Wraps. Basically this is what I do:
In a large pan, saute' 1 medium sweet onion, sliced, and 1 clove of garlic, chopped with a little butter or margarine. When onions are soft, add strips of chicken breast and cook until chicken is browned. (you can add other things like fresh mushrooms, red peppers...anything you like) Now pour a little bit of your favorite GOOD BBQ sauce into the pan and stir. (don't overdo it on the BBQ sauce, though...you can always add more later) Warm some large tortillas. Fill a tortilla with some of the chicken/onion/BBQ sauce mixture and top with shredded jack cheese, if you like. Add some mixed greens or lettuce, diced tomatoes, and some ranch dressing. Fold over and eat! These are REALLY yummy and great for dinner on the go. (sometimes we have to eat in the van on the way to somewhere) You can just wrap each one in foil and GO.
Have a wonderful day! :)
