This week I am happy that there are great people out there in blog land.
Last week I received this parcel of happiness from Freda. I won it on a recent giveaway she had going. Actually Freda won this plus more in a giveaway herself. So she decided to pay it forward so to speak. Have you been to Freda's blog The Adventures of the Empress of the Universe You must read about how she came to naming her blog. Thank you Impera Magna.
I had my monthly sewing day on Friday and helped one of the ladies do some patchwork. She had bought all the material and the pattern was one of those freebies you pick up at Spotlight. Most of the material was already cut out but there was an error in the cutting out directions, only half of it was there. So we went step by step until we had all the blocks worked out so then we worked out what size the missing piece was supposed to be. I know we were all happy when it was finished. I had only read a hint a few days before this that before cutting out your material check to see if there hasn't been some corrections to the pattern if it is from a website etc. Even cut out a test piece from scrap material or paper to see if it all works out. Better to be safe than have 99 blocks that are incorrect.
Today I am happy to share the most delicious dip recipe with you. Bonnie had a dip night on the weekend with her girlfriends so we made this.
150 grams sun dried tomatoes
1 red capsicum
160 grams unsalted cashews
40 grams oil
40 grams white vinegar.
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until the desired consistency.
This is far better than any bought dip. I threw in several garlic plants that I had picked only last week.
I only had Apple Cider vinegar on hand so used that. Bonnie was worried about not using the white vinegar but I told her Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of water is used to control your weight so that was OK. So this recipe may be not as fattening as you first think!!!
Hope you have a Happy Monday and even better week.
