During these days of isolation I have divided my spare time between hooking and punching, dyeing, gardening and oh my gosh, COOKING! If you know me at all, you know that cooking is NOT one of my favourite past times – nor is it something I excel at 🙂 .However, it is amazing how my talent in the kitchen has taken off! I have learned to take whatever mystery packages abound in the freezer and turn them into something actually edible – Freezer Surprise! Now I don’t want Gord thinking that this will become a way of life – just short term necessity! I still like frozen pizza for dinner or a can of pork and beans for lunch! But, since we have decided to eat our way through the freezer as part of our social distancing and spring cleaning, ready made foods are in short supply (as those went right at the beginning). Yesterday, I threw together a can of lentil soup, left over ham and sausages from the freezer, grated up carrots, chicken stock, stewed tomatoes, extra lentils, half a jar of left over tomato sauce and cumin, curry powder and garlic and made a rather delicious and edible soup. Neither of us got stomach cramps! Watch out Martha!!!!
So a few pieces to share in our virtual show and tell:
Liz with a helper for her new rug… Karen hooked her Karla Gerard pattern in record time – love that sky… Well I guess I won’t inherit that beautiful trampart frame after all – Wendy’s punch needle pieces all finished up – the one on the right is a Lisa Ferguson pattern I carry in punch needle and rughooking… the back of her pillow … Nancy finished her Tom Thomson… with a little help!!!… Jackie’s lovely pieces… and ohhhh how I love this piece (one of the Karla Gerard patterns I carry) hooked by Arlene… we still have about 15 deer coming daily for their feeding – but the grain is running low and they will soon have to fend for themselves – hmmmm I see the one in the rug is eyeballing someones garden!!!
