Greetings all! Last night was what my son calls 'chick flick' night. My sister came over and she taught me a little bit of how to do bobbin lace. I got the hang of it a little bit but I can't really say it's my bag. I was going to take a picture of it but I forgot. We watched 'Duplex' with Drew Barrymore and Ben Stiller. That movie is so funny. I love the look of the place before it gets trashed. I had a wee bit o' progress on No Bees. I focused mainly on the movie , fixing dinner, and I finished the stitching on an exchange piece. Now I just need to finish it off into the final product. For some reason the pic came out bright today.Here's what I got done on No Bees.
Okay, think back to Cicely , Alaska and the early to mid 1990's. Come on ,you can do it, you're not that old. The show was Northern Exposure . It was a place to sit and relax, visit with friends, have a drink at 'The Brick' , get a little insite into Indian customs , nearly freeze to death. You could talk movies with Ed , try to figure out what it is that Maggie is truly searching for, see an uptight doctor from New York , hash it out with an ex- astronaut turned millionaire , who thought he owned everyone. You could spend the night at the 'Sourdough Inn' , take in the view, and listen to the insightful thoughts of 'Chris in the Morning'. I miss that time when waiting for the new episode to come on. I do now own all of the seasons on DVD and pull them out to watch when the urge strikes.
I purchased this Northern Exposure cookbook on ebay a few years ago. From time to time I pull it out and make one of the wonderful recipes concealed in it's pages. Last night I made Ruth-Anne's pork chops, except I use chicken. It is one of our favorites from the book. It has the chops ( chicken breasts ) of course, freshly grated ginger, salt , pepper, orange peel, orange juice, and dark brown sugar. It's really good. Last night I served it with the baby carrots and potatoes that we had left over from the night before.
Here they are cooking. Don't they look tasty? Is your mouth watering yet? :) I may have to make them again next week.
Well , I'm off to see the wizard. Thank you all for your wonderful kind comments. Don't forget to keep coming back to see the giveaway announcement. Hope you all have a great day!
'Til next time,
