This was all I accomplished on the crochet front this week.
I got sick of seeing the old one on the kitchen counter.
It's just all hdc with crab stitching around the top.
I was sick again...exactly the same thing as last weekend! It helped me figure out what caused it though, and that won't be happening anymore. I had started a new medication about 24 hours before I got sick the first time. Of course, I stopped it after I started vomiting because I couldn't keep anything down anyway. I started it up again a couple of days after I started feeling better, and in less than 24 hours, I was down again. Today is the first day I'm feeling good enough to stay up and about.
But guess what? My fat pants aren't as uncomfortable anymore! The bright side, people.
Anyway..I have started the new Nordic Shawl and am 27 rows in.
I'm trying a new chicken crock pot recipe.
I used 2 pkgs of chicken tenders. They're in the crock now.
The recipe is easy...boneless chicken breasts or thighs or tenders, 1 envelope of dry Ranch dressing mix, 1 small jar of pesto (I used basil pesto), and about 1/2 cup water. Cook on low 5-6 hours. I'm going to serve mine mixed with Penne Pasta.
Put the lid on and go!
The recipe I screwed up in my last entry was Banana-Coconut Bread. I found the recipe on Pinterest and pinned it. If you see it, I'd recommend NOT using the whole recipe in one loaf pan, but I don't think it's enough for two full-size loaves. The original pinner said she used 4 mini-loaf pans. At the last minute, I found I didn't have any coconut so I used a cup of chocolate chips instead. I'm sure that wasn't the problem though.
I'm off to watch the race. Later.
