We had to get lots of huge bins to help in the packing. Our apartment looks a little crazy right now.
This is one of the projects that I'm working on. I found some grungy brushes for Photoshop that I downloaded. I made this print the other day and had it ordered so I can hang it in our new apartment.
Earlier this week I cooked a birthday dinner for my mom. My aunt hosted the dinner at her house and we had about ten people that I cooked for all-together. I was pretty nervous, but it turned out well.
I love my aunt so much. She's so goofy! This was a preview of her Halloween costume= she was a "spa lady." It was awesome.
I love the way Aunt Holly sliced the bread. Very easy to pop in the oven and toast it up.
Maddie Mae: Aunt Holly's perfect Westie. We all love this dog.
I made some bean masala with fragrant yellow rice. It had a slight punch of spice, but it worked really well with the slightly sweet rice and tomatoes. Read more here.
Making my own chicken marinade.
We bought a VGA cable so that we can watch movies and tv shows from our computer but it shows up on the tv (I know that was a horribly structured sentence... give me a break.) As you can see, Kiki REALLY loves it.
Our own version of a Caprese salad. Deliciosity!
I now love cooking with Serrano chiles. They aren't extremely spicy, but add great flavor to bean or chicken dishes.
A sample of another one of my mini projects. I found saw a photo like this in an online magazine. It's pretty cool because it has a Polaroid/vintage feel to it. I used the grunge brushes I mentioned earlier to create the fading around the edges of the black frame.
Have a great weekend!!
