The weekend flew by. I love and hate weekends like that. It was nice to be homebodies, and nice to have the kiddies cooperate and get along (EVEN DR. DESTRUCTO!). Since my internet was down most of the weekend (Thanks Verizon... nothing like losing your internet for no reason... or just because it's looking like thunder.), I got some work done.
|crochet motif #44|
This is from the book, "Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs". It's motif number 44. So far (I've only done 1 motif) the directions are clear and easy to follow. That's always a bonus. There's graphs too. Looking forward to doing more.
|zesty zucchini relish|
After last year's zucchini fiasco, where the borer beetles killed all of my plants, I'm happy to say it's the complete opposite this year. Hubs spotted the pests early, and I did some disgusting borer beetle/zucchini surgery. It seems like it's working. The plants slowed a bit, but they seem like they're springing back nicely. I had enough to make this yummy Zesty Zucchini Relish from, "Ball's Complete Book of Home Preserving". I highly recommend that one.
On an awesome note, I just wanted to share WITH THE UNIVERSE that I finally roasted a chicken to perfection. It's been 10 years in the learning. Ahahahahahahahahaha! Apparently all of those Food Network cooking shows are starting to pay off.
