Wow, where the heck did July go? I'm thrilled it is August which means we are on the second half of "summer" here and days will be cooler in a few months. But, I'm sad my tutoring of my grandson 2 days a week came to an end yesterday. I have so enjoyed being with him these extra days this summer and feel we both learned a lot this summer!
Here's a look at my "likes" this week:
1. A new "pouch" for a friend. She gave me just a few scraps and I quickly turned that around into a pouch for her. She will receive it later in the week..
2. Crock Pot "Roasted Potatoes". I did not copy the place on the internet where this was mentioned on Facebook so I just played it by ear and tried it myself. I quartered about 6 Yukon Gold potatoes and put them in the cooker. I sprinkled garlic powder, thyme, salt, pepper, rosemary (at least 1/2 tsp each) added 2T olive oil and 2T chopped butter. I just stirred it all up, covered it and cooked them 3.5 hours on low.
Yes, they were that good! I had no idea this could be done (and so easy). nor that they would turn out perfect. Granted, slow cooker temps may vary but I'm sure time would be close to 3.5 hours for you.
3. My new Pink Party Purse. Sometimes, I need a small purse (with a zipper) to go to a friend's party, or the theater and don't want to carry my usual larger cross-body purse, so I made this one from fat quarters and scraps for the lining. I even used one fat quarter for the straps. The purse is 10 x 11 x 3.
Well peeps, that's all my fun things for this week. Thanks for dropping by. Please join all of us by linking to:Not Afraid of Color
