Hi Friends. Can you believe that we are almost half way through January?
We had a pretty exciting weekend. Friday was the Pinewood Derby. Apparently Biggest’s car had an illegal speed axle. Huh? What? Thankfully with some last minute adjustments, he was allowed to race. Phew.
I spent most of the weekend concocting and cooking. I made Elderberry Syrup. Behold…
I also made bone broth, spaghetti sauce, and soup, but they were not so dramatic so no pictures. (But were delish).
I got it into my head that I REALLLLY needed Lettuce Wraps, so Tom took me to PF Changs. The Lettuce Wraps were disappointing, but the mojito that accompanied them made up for it. Mmmm… sugar water + alcohol.
I wasn’t planning for this entire post to be about food, but apparently it is.
This will be a busy week with two trips to the big city. Yesterday, I ended up on the local train which is sooooo slow. I spent over 3 hours just sitting on a train. Luckily I brought along my stitching because there’s only so much you can look at Facebook. At first it was too bumpy to stitch, but things got smoother. I’m working on some backstitching in the borders and, can I tell you… backstitching is the BEST! At first, I did it “over one” and was annoyed with how long it was taking, but then I looked at the instructions which said to do it “over two.” SO MUCH FASTER!
