Since a couple of months we have a new TV channel: 24 Kitchen.
I believe in the USA you have Food Network and I think this is about the same: 24 hours a day cooking programs. I watch it a lot especially the one that’s called “the easy kitchen”. Recipes that are ready in about 30 minutes. This week some of our dinners are from recipes I saw in this program.
Monday dinner: green bean fantasy. A dish with green beans, sweet potato, mushrooms, yellow pepper, sunflower seeds, almonds, bacon and a bit of cinnamon. Very tasteful.
Tuesday dinner: a dish with noodles, chicken, fresh pineapple, snow peas and red pepper. Also a recipe from 24 Kitchen. It was okay but not that special that I’m going to make it again.
Some of you asked me to show photo’s of my cross stitching work when it is finished. Well, you have to have a lot of patience because most of my works take years to finish. It doesn’t help that I have 10 different works on which I’m all working. I thought it would be nice to show you some of the things I did finish and that are hanging in my house.
For those of you who never cross stitch, let me give you an idea how much work it is. I have to say that the one I’m showing you is my most difficult work. Every space on this is used as you can see on the pattern at the right (and there are 3 more sheets of this). The pic below shows how it is going to look when it’s finished and you can see I did not make much progress on this one yet.
I will post a pic every Monday if I worked on something in the past week. So you and I can see the progress (or not) I’m making.
I took a vacation day today. This week is a school holiday and lot of people at work are on vacation. It was quiet this week at the office and today a lot of colleagues are free too.
My weekend plans are exercising and relaxing. Tomorrow night we are going to our best friends and have dinner there. My friend will be cooking. The plan is we are going to this more often and next time I’m the cook.
Have a great weekend my friends!
