Here are some images taken on Tuesday morning:
There was some drifting around the window feeder. There is a bird there, lol.
All that fluffy white snow reminded me of vanilla frosting. So I whipped this up. A lot of people worry about having bread and milk when a storm is coming, not me.
Thank you Doreen for making me a Album Quilt Diagram box for my sidebar of the Alice Payne blocks! I'm working on. Check out Aunt Reen's Place blog for her ongoing and finished projects.
Thanks to everyone who ordered stencils. I quickly sold out of the Large Fans, but have them on reorder. Thank you stamps.com - you've changed my life.
Congrats to CecileD - the potholder is going off to France!! Maybe it will get invited to fondu.
I hope you are all safe and warm and enjoying the quiet gifts of winter (or a warm summer in Australia).
African Chicken Peanut Soup
1 1/2 cups cubed peeled sweet potato
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
2 cups cooked chicken
1 cup salsa
1/2 tsp ground cumin
2 16 oz cans chicken broth
2 15 oz healthy choice chicken with rice soup (undiluted)
1 15 oz can black beans, drained
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter (I use about 1/2 cup, cause I like it)
sauté sweet potato, onion, garlic and jalapeño for 5 mins in a dutch oven in a little olive oil over med/high heat.
Stir in chicken and rest of ingredients except peanut butter. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer.
Put the peanut butter in a bowl, then add a few ladles of hot soup and mix well. This will temper it, then add it back to the pot, stir and heat another 2 mins and serve.
recipe from my friend Pauline (who was born, raised and lived in Africa for most of her life).
