Little dresses

My group (Dress a girl) is taking a month off from meeting so I brought home some dress packets to make up....
Wished I would have brought more as they make up quick and I have enjoyed sewing them...
Can you imagine some little girl in Africa will wear this dress....

Tues. night dinner catch up

I don't know how I get so far behind and sometimes can't remember what I cooked haha...but here are a few anyhow.
Ham Fried Rice
2 beaten eggs
2 tbl. cooking oil
1 cup chopped fully cooked ham =6 oz.
1 2oz. can chopped mushrooms drained
3tb sliced green onion
1 tbl. soy sauce
1/4 tsp ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1/12 cups cold cooked rice
In 10 inch skillet cook eggs in t tbs. of the oil without stirring, till set. Invert skillet over a plate to remove eggs and cut eggs into short narrow strips.
In same skillet cook chopped ham, mushrooms, green onion, soy sauce, garlic and ginger in the remaining oil over high heat for 3 to 4 min. Stir in cold cooked rice and eggs strips; heat through.
Served with steam vegetables and orange slices.

Last Tues. night I grilled marinated pork chops and asparagus
I didn't like the marinade and won't fix it that way again but did love the grilled asparagus.
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground black pepper
Wash and snap off hard parts of asparagus and dry with a towel
Combine all the above in zip lock bag and mix well, then add the asparagus and coat well. Then simply grill until done.

Need to do a little explanation here. I rarely grill and my hubby never does but my stove top has a built in grill...
It has a air sucker and all that but of course you then have to take it apart and clean it but recently I ordered one of those grill matts and they work! I would show you a picture but it is in the dish washer:)
Ended the dinner out with a baked pot.

Accidently luxury

It is so hot here in the summer that we don't use the bedspread and it usually gets tossed on the floor and we just sleep under the sheets and in the morning I pick it up and make the bed. I got to thinking this was not making a lot of sense and I should maybe just get a set of sheets that were pretty and matched my color scheme so I went looking. I couldn't find anything that suited me so I gave up but soon after I got a add for a big sale on sheets and it was just the colors I wanted so although it said 100% polyester and I have always bought cotton sheets I decided to give it a try, after all it was only $14.00 for the entire king set!
These are the most luxurious sheets I have ever seen!!! and they go perfect with the two swivel chairs.
and how fun to switch it out for summer and winter but think the sheets are going to stay year round:)

Tues. night dinner

Cooked a kielbasa and cabbage dish like before but in foil packets. I think I prefer the other way best but the real hit was the side dish. I bought a package of precut melon slices and then I saw this package of almonds and cranberries
and sprinkled some over the fruit....yum!
