This past weekend we were busy getting Nicholas ready to go back to school and preparing for Mike to be down from knee surgery. The surgery was this morning, and he is in recovery now. It sounds like he should feel a lot better once he heals.
Mike still did some cooking, but kept it a little easier. Saturday night he made steak sliders with grilled onions. He used a rub spice that he made a little bit ago. To go with them he also made sweet potato fries. They weren’t really crispy like chips, but they were tasty. The spice mix was yummy a bit sweet and spicy.
We ordered pizza Sunday night, but Monday he cooked up pork tenderloin tacos in the crock pot and made a mango pico de gallo. The sauce for the pork included cinnamon sticks. It added a bit of a sweet flavor to complement a mildly spicy sauce with adobo chile sauce. The mango salsa is about medium hot. I love the pico type of salsas, I could eat them with a spoon.
I decided to do some monthly layouts for 2010, Project 12 style. I just got started this past week. I made up some picture collages in PSE with my favorite pictures from the month done through June. I had them printed up at Costco in 8×12 and 8×8 sizes. I ended up doing the collages myself. I looked all over for templates, but didn’t like what I found. Costco has a collage tool, but I wanted more control. It took a bit longer, but as I worked through each month, I got better at it and was happy with the results.
I finally got to use my Studio Calico month stamps. I made the flower with Studio Calico Fabrips.
Hope you have a great Wednesday!
