These little cuties were make and takes from the Quilts, Etc. Shop in Sandy, Utah. I finally got them finished and ready to hang.
I got a little bored yesterday and decided to pick out a couple of fat quarters from my stash and use this pattern to make a little zippered pouch. I think this little guy will be quite useful for a lot of things. The pattern is by Karen West from For the Love of Fabric. I'll for sure be making more of these.
I'm trying to make meal preparing a little simpler and a little healthier. I made this rice this week and it was pretty tasty.
Cilantro Lime Rice
3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 ½ cups long grain rice
2 Tbsp. minced dried onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
Grated rind from 1 lime
Juice from 2 limes
Handful of coarsely chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper to tasteCombine first five ingredients in a large saucepan. Add the juice from 1 lime. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down and cover pan with lid and let simmer for 15-20 minutes or until rice is cooked. Take off heat and remove lid. Add cilantro and juice from the other lime. Add salt and pepper. Stir to combine and mix everything. Fluff with a fork and serve. Makes about 6 servings.
I was able to finish this book late last night and I really enjoyed it. There was so much going on and it was never boring. I do enjoy books about strong women and this was definitely one of them.
