My heart goes out to the people of Moore, Oklahoma. Read more about it here. The weather man is forecasting more possiblities of severe weather today. We got a sprinkle yesterday. Points north--nearer the Oklahoma border-- had a tornado touch. This weather pattern with humidity and warm temperatures--90s is much more normal than recent years with the drought.
The tornado that happened in Granbury last week was just east of where DS#1 lives. We received 1 1/2 inches of much appreciated rain. The grass immediately perked up. I have teeny weeny zucchini on the plants. And one green tomato! Looking good. I can't wait to taste them.
This past Saturday was WCQG meeting. It was a good meeting and I did the Worry Free Bias Binding demo for them.
I took a break from quilting on the Dresden plate quilt. Temps were too warm to sit under it! Until we turned the a/c on. The humidity was just too great not to turn it on. So now the quilting continues. I am almost to the end of the 2nd border. I marked the corner this morning. I am finding that the chalk marks are disappearing with my handling if I mark too far ahead. This is not loose chalk but a chalk cartridge.
I don't think I am going to be able to keep up with Hog Man. He empties the feed sacks faster than I can sew them! Those little pigs are growing fast! Which is a good thing. : )
I gotta share a recipe of sorts. I had some leftovers in the fridge. Little pieces of this and that. Steamed broccoli, mashed potatoes, roast beef. I had seen a recipe on Pinterest for broccoli patties. My mother used to make potato pancakes. I only had about 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes--not enough for potato pancakes. I had about a cup of leftover steamed broccoli that needed using or would have to be thrown out. So I chopped the broccoli and mixed in the mashed potatoes. Then I sprinkled in dry minced onions and broke an egg and stirred. I added some frozen corn--maybe 1/3 to 1/2 cup. Then I added a tablespoon of cornmeal and about a fourth cup of flour and seasoned with salt and pepper. I took small spoonfuls and pan-fried them for our lunch yesterday. The roast beef was minced up and added to white sauce and served over toast for a fast tasty lunch. Leftovers gone!
Happy quilting and blessings,
