A Little Hybrid, M Project & Recipe

Love BirdBefore I start, come back tomorrow for some an awesome chance to win a freebie and what you have to do to win it. It’ll be fun fun fun!

Here’s a little card using some hybrid paper (the birdies) from TheDigiChick, stamps by Chatterbox, SU cardstock, KI paper paper and PTI ribbon. I double stamped (so easy with acrylic) the birds to give it a more variance.

Just a little card that can be used for Valentine’s day, a wedding, or anybody you love really.

How’s your weekend? We had a decently nice one. Saturday M had a little playdate and then we went and met up with a couple of hubby’s coworkers and their partners for sushi at our favorite place. I usually get the same stuff, dynamite roll (an assortment of raw fish) and spicy tuna but lately I’ve been replacing the tuna with something else due to the overfishing of tuna and something that’s not raw. It’s my preggo routine, cutting back to half. Afterwards we went to Borders for some coffee (I saved up all allowed caffeine intake for Sat. night too) and reading. Hubby got a Dilbert’s book on sale, $5, steal {::SMILES}. Today we’re just chilling out. We made a couple clothespin dolls and watched some Tom and Jerry on YouTube. The dolls were really easy to make, I did some stitching but fabric glue would have been enough. The fabric were mostly felt but we’re going to do more with some fun fabric next time and yarn hair. The best part of the project: We both had a blast and she thinks I’m the bestest mommy in the world {::SMILES}.

Clothespin dolls

Tonight we’ll be doing Sunday Supper (local food kitchen) again, I’ll be making my homemade salsa. It’s Taco night! Oh, if you want to try the salsa recipe (not bragging but everybody really likes this recipe) – just keep in mind when I cook I don’t measure. These are estimates and for myself I use the max of the below numbers (aka three jalapenos and three cloves of garlic).

  • 1 medium size onion or half a large one (if you don’t like onions, use a half but without onions… dunno, just not salsa, ha!)
  • 4 Roma tomatoes (although my favorite is the on the vine tomatoes… just a bit more expensive)
  • Cilantro (I usually use 1/4 -1/2 of the bunch)
  • Jalapenos (I love it spicy so I put 3 but start at half a jalapeno if you’re not into hot stuff)
  • 1-3 cloves of garlic, depends on how you like garlic
  • 1 tbs lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper (or more salt if you like it saltier)

Cut the onion in half and dump the pieces into the food processor, give it a good pulse. Then dump the rest of the ingredients in. I like my salsa kind of chunky but that’s your preference. For hubby’s work I blend it more so that it looks more like the restaurant type — smooth.

    Please tell Miss M that one of your pretend friends loves the dolls she made. Thanks for the salsa recipe. My oldest daughter’s boyfriend has learned to make very good Mexican food from his mother. (I think you know the mom — but it would be bad etiquette to mention a name here, I think.) I’d like to learn to make Mexican food as good as his and your salsa could be the start of this new venture! As always, your card is sweet!

    CUTE card, and I love the clothespin dolls! I make salsa all the time too, but believe it or not, I don’t add garlic, and I LOVE garlic! Must add next time! I also add a very, very, very small quantity of both canola oil and vinegar. (If it were up to my husband, he would add a ton of vinegar — I have no idea why!!) I love fresh salsa!
