I feel so good about all the work we completed this weekend. Our biggest project was removing all the shutters and repainting them.
On Saturday I showed DH how to make chicken pot pies. We had to clean all the veggies, cook them to the al dente stage, then cook the chicken breasts, cut everything into bite-sized pieces, make a roux, and do all the clean up. We used puff pastry so we did not have to make pie crust. We had two for dinner (very tasty!) and froze enough for three meals later this winter. I don't think he will ever make them on his own...he thinks they require too much work! :) Imagine what he would think if he had to make the pie crust, too! He just took over the cooking duties in May--grilling season. He has done a great job of grilling all summer, but he has no idea how much effort it takes to cook winter meals.
I am feeling autumn in the air and decided to take this lantern
I also did something with this bird cage picture holder that I bought during one of my 5:00 am shopping sprees two weeks ago. When it was delivered Saturday afternoon, I wondered whatever possessed me to buy this--I really have no pictures that I want to put on it....I did not even know where I would hang it! The picture is misleading as it only came with 4 clothes pins.
As it turned out, I did not even use the clothes pins. I will show you on another post what I ended up doing with it.
I hope you all had a wonderful late summer weekend!
Denim Wreath - OK, this is not quilting, but it is at least crafty. I also lost a good deal of finger skin on this project, so I am really feeling the need to show off...
