Nothing to

I haven't shared a recipe with you for awhile so how about this quick and easy one...


1 large can EACH navy white beans & favo beans*

1 lb. hamburger 

1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large can crushed pineapple
1 c. BBQ sauce
2 T. soy sauce
1 tsp. EACH salt & pepper
     Sauté beef with onion & garlic; drain.  Combine 
with remaining ingredients. Simmer 30 minutes.  
Serve over rice.

·         Use any combination of beans you prefer

- I stumbled on the work of THIS artist and thought you might like to explore her gallery.  I especially love her lace and wood pieces.

- THIS pattern was created for beading, but I think it would be perfect for stitching too.

- There is a pretty cowl pattern made with lace-weight yarn HERE.  It's a really pretty pattern and it appears you would get at least two out of one ball of yarn.  Perhaps one for you and one for a gift?

- THIS is one of those handy things that would be great as a stash buster (and would make a nice gift)

- If you would like to learn different knitting stitches AND stash bust at the same time, perhaps you'd like to make one of THESE

- HERE is another great stash buster that creates something really useful.  And THIS is another useful thing, as is THIS.  

Your quote of the day..."Fear has two meanings - Forget Everything and Run OR Face Everything and Rise.  The choice is yours!"

Holy Cow!! That sounds SO good! I've made my mom's recipe for many years and it's always a hit. It's similar but the pineapple -- OH THAT SOUNDS WONDERFUL!! I am definitely going to try this and it may be very soon! I LOVE the little first-aid kit and hope to make that as well!

Yum to your recipe. Sounds like good comfort food for a cold Winter’s night. Lots of great links you are sharing. Interesting Fear choices. <3

I love that artist gallery you shared. Great links!

This recipe has me intrigued! It sounds tasty. Your links have me wishing I could knit (though, I'm not sure which craft I would give up to find the time - lol!) And I love your quote. I think I prefer the Face Everything and Rise. :)

Love the cute first aid kit. Be fun to make some of those for pressies! Karen, Hannah and Baa. xxx

That recipe does sound delicious for a cold winter evening, thanks for sharing.
I think the beaded friendship bracelet could easily be done in cross stitch. I like the
butterfly and ladybug version too.
The quote is good. Sometimes I don't have the strength to rise in the face of a storm but
hanging in there is also an option.

recipe? another weird fact about me....I don't like being in the kitchen. I only have a kitchen because it came with the house.
