The blue blob you saw in my previous post about the landscape has evolved to what you see here....
AND - there was a massive big box that arrived here a few days ago that was earmarked for Resident Chef's 'significant' birthday from our #2 son and daughter-in-love. Of course it was the subject of much curiosity but it wasn't allowed to be opened until we video chatted with them last night. To put a little of this in context, our daughter-in-love is Taiwanese by birth and she knows that Dad is interested in Asian cooking. So....a cookbook AND ingredients for him to play with....
I'm gonna love this!!!!!!😊
The gift that will keep on giving!
- THIS looks like it would be a fun quilt to make if you have lots of scraps in your stash.
- Don't blame me if you trip and fall down the rabbit hole HERE. Do try to leave a trail of bread crumbs so you can find your way out.....
- Go and have a peek through the Collections categories of THIS amazing artist!
- There are tons of good resources for knitters available HERE.
Today's quote..."Whether my cup is half full or half empty today, I'm thankful that I have a cup and that there is something in it"
What a great present. To both of you. I hope there will be pictures of the results!ReplyDelete
We love Asian food so it will be fun to create some at home. I'm sure Resident Chef is going to have a great time playing with all his new goodies.Delete
Loving the old Chevy. Such a thoughtful and fun gift. I went down not 1 but 2 rabbit holes. Reflections led me to a list of sites as well.ReplyDelete
Oh oh - TWO rabbit holes? I do hope you took a break in between!!!Delete
Sherry of createology: This truck looks very real. Wonderful present from your “kids”. Resident Chef will be having lots of fun trying out lots of new recipes. And you both will have fun eating new foods. Happy Exploring…ReplyDelete
I'm going to get the best out of the new cooking deal methinks! Sure will be fun to experiment.Delete
Your truck most definitely looks like a truck. :) What a delicious and wonderful gift for Resident Chef (and YOU)! ;^) Enjoy the tasty dishes your hubby will make with all those ingredients. I'm intrigued by the quilt made in the first link. That looks like a fun way to try out piecing and quilting. Wheels are turning...ReplyDelete
Glad to know the truck actually looks like one! And yes, it was a wonderful gift that we will get to enjoy over and over.Delete
I love the truck--[blue before it rusted or red with original blue paint underneath?] why do i think these things??--at any rate it came out beautifully--nice work! and...ReplyDelete
A terrific culinary gift that you cn both appreciate...hugs, Julierose ;)))
Blue before it rusted I think. And yes, we are certainly going to enjoy his gift!Delete
Happy Birthday Resident Chef!ReplyDelete
I will extend your well wishes to him - thank you!Delete
Oh, you know it does and what a great looking truck it is! I love it!ReplyDelete
Thank you!! I don't know which I like working with more - old buildings or old vehicles.Delete
Yes, it's a truck! You have the most thoughtful DIL. Love it when someone else get a gift that benefits me!ReplyDelete
Yes, I can't wait to taste test some goodies from that cookbook!Delete
Oh yes, it looks like a truck for sure!! I like the look of the goodies that will keep giving!! xxReplyDelete
Thank you Joy - glad you think it looks like a real truck.Delete
And Resident Chef has plans for those goodies!
Your blob is looking good!ReplyDelete
And a happy belated birthday to your dear Chef, it looks like you're both in for a treat.
I know I'm looking forward to my role as official taste tester of all the things that will come out of that box of goodies! Lucky me!!Delete
What a thoughtful gift. I'm sure you'll both enjoy putting it to use!ReplyDelete
Yes, it was an amazing gift and perfect for Resident Chef. He's been reading that cookbook cover to cover and I noticed the grocery list today was filled with 'different' things that I'm sure must mean he's going to be doing some testing.Delete
