Today my sweet little angel has to go back to Chicago with her mama. I think Daddy is missing them greatly. It will break my heart to put her on the plane but she will be back in two weeks. I can make it...I think I can, I think I can, I THINK I CAN!Jenny has them all packed up....Did we have that much stuff with our kids???? Probably I just don't remember!!
Today is a BEAUTIFUL Sunny Day here in T-Town. We got storms yesterday but the really wild weather missed us. Thank you Lord! Ella, Jenny and I took a nice hour long walk. I am able to walk without much pain but have to wear really cushy shoes. The bridge of my foot and toe are very swollen. Dr. says may be 3-4 months before the swelling goes down. GREAT....I hope I can wear shoes to Kristy's graduation in mid May!
I have been working upstairs in the sewing room for about an hour while Ella sleeps. Jeff is still working from home. He is busy downstairs in the office so I try to get out of his way. I am working on Bonnie Hunter's quilt, "Holy Toledo". Jenny was born in Toledo. We lived there in 1983-84 while Jeff was an intern at Parkview Hospital. Working on this quilt reminds me of her when she was Ella's age. Good Stuff!!
Fiesta!!!!Yesterday we had friends over to meet Ella. We had our own Fiesta using the Fiesta Chicken I had made on Saturday!!! The white casserole is full of chicken goodness. I made some delicious toppings to add to the buffet. Let's show you what I made:
Pico de Gallo
Shopping List:2-3 medium ripe tomatoes
1 large red onion
1/2 bunch cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
1 jalapeno or small red peppers
Simple fresh ingredients. Tomatoes, Red onion, cilantro, lime and salt.
Add the tomatoes, cilantro, and onion to a bowl. Toss to mix. If you like jalapeno carefully dice the amount you like and add it to the mix. I did not have any jalapeno but had some small red peppers which I diced and added. It gave a nice crunch.
Enjoy Your Fiesta Chicken however you like it......share pictures back here with us so we can show the world How you Eat Your Fiesta Chicken!!
Off to the airport and then I have to teach a Pediatric Advanced Lifesupport Class to a large group of Physician's tonight. Glad I ate Fiesta chicken on my salad for lunch!!
