Over the weekend I finished off another of the projects I had begun pre-cataract surgeries and this will also be added to the Christmas box. This is a crocheted mile-a-minute design that is very simple and uses up some stash. Unfortunately the stash didn't extend to enough colours SOOOO....what's a girl to do but order more? And then THAT set of circumstances leads to having to use up THAT additional stash...so...I've started another of these, only with black as the main colour. In the meantime, here's the first one...
and here is a closeup...
Here is another recipe we just discovered and love ... it's courtesy of the May 2021 issue of the Food Network Magazine...
GINGER-MANGO "NICE" CREAM
Freeze 2 sliced bananas and 1 diced mango until firm, at least 4 hours. Puree in a food processor with 3 T. agave syrup (we use maple syrup), 1/2 tsp. grated fresh ginger and a pinch of salt until thick and smooth. Transfer to a small baking dish and freeze until firm.

Today's quote..."Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy. If you aren't being treated with love and respect, check your price tag. Maybe you've marked yourself down. It's YOU who tells people what your worth is. Get off the clearance rack and get behind the glass where they keep the valuables"
