Brandie's dress from the front. Micah hand stitched their little bags on their belts.
Good job, Son! Almost done!
Back view of Bandie's dress. Shoot, the pattern called for a zipper, something they did not have back then. I sewed in little loops of cord so we could weave the dress closed. We had fun.
Our Medieval couple!
Before we found out about the kids going to "War", I made a huge pot of Pinto beans. I cooked them with "no-chicken broth, canned green chilies, cumin, chili powder, onion and garlic. Lucky for us Pinto beans are a magical bean that can be turned into tacos, burritos, soup, and stew.
Here is a recipe for a Couscous salad that Brandie changed a bit from the original on Susan's site fatfreevegan.com, which orginated from Vegan Fusion.
Mt. Carmel Couscous Salad

Veggies getting ready to be roasted. I love roasted veggies!
Simply steamed broccoli and cauliflower.
Somehow we survived and I am done sewing for awhile and ready to cook! Hope I didn't bore you all too much, with family photos on this post. Off to the kitchen.....
