Poor Lil' Stress Buddy

Hello,


Hope this finds you doing well this week.

Today, my little stress buddy at work finally fell under pressure.  Yes the little thing has been used and abused by several in the department.  :)

Where its spines stuck out evenly all around its form, they are now collapsed in front and back.   It will be replaced soon, but will remain hanging in my cubicle, in honor of the service it rendered.  :)

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Today David harvested some Swiss chard and green peppers from his garden.

So my recipe this week includes the Swiss chard.






Swiss Chard Bow Ties

Bunch Swiss chard, julienned
1/4 onion, chopped
1/4 green pepper, chopped
7 slices bacon, chopped
Box of bow tie pasta
Your favorite pasta sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

  • Start big pot of water to boil for the pasta and cook pasta as directed on package and drain.  
  • In a hot skilled, cook bacon, onion and peppers until crisp and done.  Turn heat down and add the julienned Swiss chard, stir carefully, then place a lid on pan to wilt the greens.  
  • Add pasta sauce to bacon/greens and heat
  • Add pasta sauce mixture to the pasta mixing well.
Sprinkle with Parmesan, if desired.   Serves 6-8 people.

RECENTLY CROCHETED


Though this block looks kind of wonky right now, it is one of the Scripture Afghan blocks I've been working on.  This one is called Wheat Sheaf.

Like the other scripture blocks, I researched to see how many times wheat sheaf is in the Bible.

I couldn't find wheat sheaf, but I did find wheat 52 times.   The scripture that stood out to me was Psalm 147:14

He maketh piece in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.

This verse speaks to me of protection and providing of needs.
