Belated Birthday Gift for Jaime

Back in April Jaime requested an apron for her birthday...well better late than never.
She wanted it to be retro/vintage.  I found this cute fabric and when I was putting on the finishing touches I remembered some really old rickrack that my mom had.  It was the perfect color.  So Jaime has an apron with a  real vintage touch!  A special gift from her Geemaw. Happy Birthday Jaime 2 months late!

Somehow this post never did got on my blog. So here it is.  I guess that makes it a belated belated post!

Jaime has told me more than once that it is amazing how I go into my pantry and come out and within a few minutes I have a meal on the table. When all our kids were young they would ask "What's for dinner? and I'd say "Slop." Which really meant I didn't know but I'd throw something together! Well... being a working woman there are many nights I still make "slop" and last night was one of those nights. This is what I put together so give it a try.

1 can black beans(rinsed and drained)
6 chicken tenderloins
2 tablespoons white chicken chili seasoning or use a little garlic powder and cumin
1 large tomato (sliced)
1/4 cup MILD jalapeno slices
1 cup shredded colby jack

I layered the ingredients in a 9X9 pyrex dish. Cooked it for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
Serve with tortilla chips and salad.

It was super easy , yummy and it is what I had around the house thus...SLOP.

I Spy

Posted by PicasaI made this for Carter for his birthday.  It is my first quilt!!!!  Don't look too close...I'm no Grandmother when it comes to piecing a quilt. But I think he really liked it. He really likes the page where he has to find the monkey doing yoga!!!!  I took a picture of each quilt block uploaded them to Snapfish and made the book.  Thanks to Aunt Vickie who quilted it and Aunt Laney who helped me bind it!
