I'd like y'all to meet Karma!! She's a rescued Pit mix who's had a rough start!! She was nursed back to health by a friend & is doing great!! I found her a forever home yesterday. So I went & picked her up this morning & delivered her to her forever home!! I only knew her for about 45 minutes & she kept running back to me & crying, Awwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

I took leftover egg roll wrappers filled them with leftover pork chops that I shredded up, sprinkled shredded swiss cheese on them. Than poured some sweet heat marinade, than folded them into triangles. Sprayed them with Pam & baked them till they were golden! Nom!! I put sweet heat marinade on my plate to dip them into!! Sweet Heat Marinade is made by Saucy Mama.

17 & 18 Photos

So I made lemon bars for my lonely cake plate & they were an EPIC FAIL!!! Guess I didn't let the crust cool off enough & the eggs cooked first, Ewwwwwwwww!!!! So I just had to share the picture!! LOL

Than this is my redesign of the Mini Bow Tucks purse. Check out that recessed zipper that I learned how to do!!! Don't you just love the fabric!! I love it cause a very dear blogger friend used it to make a quilt & I found out it's The Day of the Dead & it's a celebration of life!!!! Cool!!

So I totally forgot yesterday to post a picture:( I got home from work around 6:30 & was so cold I snuggled up on the cuch with a nice warm quilt & was out!! I woke up & headed to bed!!  Plus my tummy is having issues?? So today I cooked!! Yay I decided that buying lunch out at work was costing a small fortune! I had to go food shopping big time!! Got some great deals!!
So I cooked a pork roast in the oven with a rub of olive oil, salt, pepper & garlic. Put a beef roast in the pressure cooker with the same rub.
Put a pot of pinto beans on, NOM!!

Plus made chicken parmigiana!!! I used simply recipes, recipe!!


I'm going to package these all up in meal size & freeze so I don't have to buy lunch out!!! I'm waiting on the chicken to cool & I want to taste it so bad!!! LOL

So My Mom picked out the floral fabric for a Bow Tucks she wanted me to make for a friend of her's. I told her I didn't like it!! LOL she said she didn't really like it either??? Such is life!! So I went & got different fabric & everyone was happy!! Yay!! So my Mom said to make her a tote bag out of the floral fabric, said OK but the fabric wasn't moving me to work on it. I told her that on Tuesday. So today in between clients I took the selvage strip to Joann's & found the perfect inspiration fabric!! So this is my Mom's new Market Tote! Found the tute here  I didn't use the ribbon on the handles but should have used batting in them. I did put 2 pockets in it instead of one.
