Good morning, er.... afternoon....... [Aug. 7th, 2005|01:33 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I spent some time working on my Giant Commission today - I had to stop for the sake of my knees though, hehe. For the lower parts of it I have to kneel & hunch over the whole time, and I literally am getting weird purple bruises on my knees >__<

So I am going to take a short break from that and work on some stuff that lets me sit on my arse, hehe. I even moved the webcam so you can watch me paint HERE. Not sure what it will be, but I am starting with a dark cloudy sky with purple and turquoise.....

I might try to sneak in some more ACEO cards too, we'll see!

I'm making some Caribbean Stew in the Crock-Pot - my sister-in-law Heather gave me the recipe! It has black beans, plantains, sweet potatoes, cilantro, assorted spices, garlic, red onions, I forget what all - but it is starting to smell really good!

My mom is getting married in two weeks - it's sneaking up on me! I am designing & making the programs for it. I'm also a bridesmaid ;) So I'll be going up to Kansas City again pretty soon!

*******
Hey Kachina - my salsa got here! One of the lids came off intransit, but it's fine - the plastic bag held it on pretty well & it's still good, lol. Thank you so much! I'm halfway through one bottle already, I'm crazy for it! Next time I'm in town I will have to stock up again. Thank you for the CD too. =)
*******

All righty - I'd better get off to work!

For this one I use the bitter (unripe) plantain. I like both kinds though!

Probably not...LOL. I've just never liked them. I eat green beans and wax beans and that's it. My mom even made me a separate batch of special chili without them, and still does. ^_^

I'm glad your salsa made it okay, I was scared you'd wind up with a box of broken glass mixed with salsa and bags. I think the stew you're making sounds good. I don't know if James would like it, maybe I'll make it sometime and see. I'm not sure if he's ever had plantains.

You packed it really well! I think the only reason the lid came off was because of the pressure in the airplane, hehe.

The stew was tasty - it was good with the fresh mangoes on top, and we put a lot of that red chili sauce (the type with the rooster on the bottle) on it too.

wow-less than two weeks now till wedding days. i still dont know what to wear...i have the benifit of being able to pump bottles but i dont think we will be in KC long enough before the wedding for me to pump bottles. so i either need to find a feed friendly outfit or try and hope that a couple of bottles stay cold enough that i froze some of them maybe they could make it to kc without going bad and they have about a 24 hour shelf life after they thaw out...so that would cover me through the wedding.

anyways...busy is good, i have to try and register for classes today.
