Day Off


Don't you love how a "day off" never really plays out as planned?  I did buy groceries, made 3 pies (2 pumpkin, 1 fresh lemon w/ K's assistance), turkey stock for tomorrow's gravy, diced and cubed bread + herbs for stuffing, and I  a made family heirloom recipe for cranberry gelatin with pineapple and grapes that is far more complicated than it needs to be.  (I had never made it b/c I hate Jello and am so-so about cranberry, so I never eat this dish at mom's house. One daughter and my hubby thought it needed to be on the menu since we are staying home.)  I'm also prepped to make a gourmet version of green bean casserole (fresh beans, crimini & shitake mushrooms in a cream sauce, freshly fried onions on top.)

My favorite view today is the fruit piled up on the cyprus bowl carved by my friend Sparky.  Just above the oranges you can see the baby pictures of my girls who are now 15 & 18.

I was ABOUT to make brownies & lemon bars to add to the feast...I even pulled pans out of the cupboards.  But the reality is that I'm not big on sweets, so I decided to drink wine and piece instead.   Here's a sneak-peak of today's progress.

Surprisingly, I have only one person who has correctly guessed the outcome of my mystery project.  That person is going to be my GRAND PRIZE WINNER.  The winner was informed early on about her/his successful guess.  All the other entries still qualify for runner up prizes which involve a packet of Friendship Square Batiks.  Keep posting your guesses about what this quilt will become to qualify for yummy 5 inch squares of phenomenal fabric.

Well, it could be a drunken panda or a subway map of Tokyo. . . .

A QR tag.

If you rotate the picture clockwise, it's a graph paper line drawing of Mickey Mouse with a big smile on his face.

Or it's an adaptation of an Atari game... Ms. Pac Man Gone Wild!
