I’m glad we did. I needed PROTEIN!
I’m happy to say that I stayed gluten free the entire time. Remember I’m doing this in baby steps. If I fall off the wagon, I’ll just get back on the next day –but things are improving and the greatest thing I am finding is that I am losing my cravings for things.
I’ve stayed away from the “gluten free” breads and other “tastes like looks like” substitutes – and I’m glad, because I think those would keep me wanting the real thing.
Upon getting home we dropped the bags in the front room and headed to the hot tub. After that it was nap-city. I woke up at 8pm and remembered that we are drawing for the winner of 200 Blocks, THE BOOK tonight!
Our winner is Toni Stanek!
My favorite desert is to make a brownie or a chocolate chip cookie in a 3 in cast iron skillet (bake it right in the skillet). Let it sit 5 min out of the oven and then put ice cream, drizzle caramel and chocolate over the ice cream and then top it all off with whip cream. This is such a yummy warm dessert and it is great with two spoons if you feel like sharing!Doesn’t that sound yummy?? When the need arises, I think this is going to do the ticket just fine!
AND you can do this gluten free!!!! there are lots of prepackaged brownie and cookie mixes out there that work great for this! Enjoy with a good cup of java!
Toni, I’ve sent you an email ---please get back to me with your snail mail address and the book will be mailed out to you!
I learned some new techie things this week that I didn’t know before.
Where I used to feel like a pretty tech-saavy kid on the block about 15 years ago when I first started my website, I now feel like the out-of-date-holdover-from-a-previous-decade-grandma-on-the-block.
For a long time now my son Jason has been saying things like “Mom – you need to do instagram because it will post directly to facebook and to twitter.” And my response was always “But I write to the blog, and it posts to facebook isn’t that enough?”
And after this weekend I can see that I’m missing a whole section of you that don’t facebook but might tweet, or might instagram ---and we can’t have that happen! So. TONIGHT. I made my first instagram post that fed to the facebook page, AND tweeted itself! You would think I just won the nobel PIECE prize! HA!
This all came about after a wonderful series of pow-wow sessions with the other instructors at Block Party and what they found as valuable ways to communicate with readers ---I love what we can learn from each other!
The question remains – how do you find me, and do I ever know you’ve found me or – how do we be friends on that? LOL!
If YOU know --- you can find me on Intagram under the user name Quiltville. The tweets go to my username BonnieKHunter.
And we just threw one more plate into the batch I’ve already got spinning, but what a ride, huh? :cD
It felt so good to walk in here after my nap ---I plan to spend a couple hours – but not too many – just sewing. Body is on West Coast time. Clock is on East Coast time…I’m accepting the fact that it is going to take a couple of days to adjust!
OH – heads up on Quilt-Cam for this week.
It’s Holy Week.
I need a couple of days to catch up, and then folks get really busy as Holy Week revs up even more starting Thursday, and I think I need a week of rest too, so I’m thinking we MIGHT be able to do it Wednesday night this week – but probably not more than that, and definitely not over next weekend because it IS Easter. Sound fair? Be watching for updates. I’ll let you know.
