For dinner last night, we had a steak salad, loosely based on this recipe I found on the Pioneer Woman's blog. Do you know the Pioneer Woman? I am just getting acquainted, but feel we could be true friends. She talks about food in a way that makes you want to get up and run to the kitchen immediately.
I'd never eaten crispy fried onion straws on a salad before and now I am forever changed. Dinner left me asking myself the big questions in life: Why don't I fry more things? Why aren't more fried foods served on salad? How soon is too soon to eat this again?
After dinner, I taught my last session of summer sewing classes. It was so much fun. Everyone finished their projects and then, in a last minute whirlwind of "I just can't let you leave without this knowledge", I taught them how to make gathers, hem a skirt, use seam sealant, and cut bias tape.
Then I made everyone hold up their projects while I snapped pictures. And yes, that is a part of the class, if you're thinking about taking one in the future.
I'm glad to have my dining room back, but I know I'll be a little sad when nobody shows up next Tuesday.
Both my sofa and my sewing table are covered with fabric right now. When I get new fabric, I like to lay it around and look at it for a bit. Usually, I already know what I'm going to make with it, but sometimes I get inspired with a new idea. Come on back Friday and I'll show you what I'm working with.
