My Taco Soup/Stew (whatever) turned out really tasty two nights ago, and really the longer it sits in the fridge with the flavors blending, the better it becomes. My 3-yr. old grandson lapped it up readily, so I know if he consumes it, it's good. He's like a little food snob already, but he gets that honest from his mom and dad who are both excellent domestic chefs with very particular taste buds for fine foods. I am just what I call a "country cook".....food is good, hot, seasoned, and plenty of it.....but it isn't fancy or too rich. At any rate, the 6-qt. pot is doing the trick for me....i.e., feeding them for at least a couple of evenings so I can snag some free time out of the kitchen! Yeah!Today was a good day even though I got out of bed on the wrong side for some unknown reason. I talked to my BFF on the phone who also lives on a beach but not nearby. Her's is on the Outer Banks and really nice but usually more windy and cooler than my beach here. I love to go there and visit though because it is not so commercialized and feels more naturefied. (Is that even a word?) LOL! It always seems our lives are running parallel even though we are miles apart. We share what we call "international moments" which are simple good convesations over many cups of coffee. We used to do this in person when we lived close to each other and our children were all young together. We would fix the real "International Coffee" flavors and pretend we were someplace wonderful while we talked instead of in one of our kitchens able to hear our kids yelling and killing each other. Ahh, those were the days. We didn't know it then, but those were actually our "happy days". At least we had some control on our kids and their problems and they were all there inside the household walls, safe and sound. And, little did the two of us know what we would personally endure in the future as we sat there and drank our coffee. Wow, how time flies and one day you look in your mirror and see your mother looking back at you. Geez!!
Okay, enough of memory lane for the moment....Today's FREEBIE is one of my favorite colors! I'm a very basic earthtone sort of modified hippie gal, and this frame is a gorgeous mix of browns and oranges. I personally adore how it turned out! (My most favorite color is teal, and that one is coming soon!) Below is #10 in this collection in the give-away of 14 in this series. All are 2100 x 2100 pixels, 300 dpi, png format so you can use them in most all programs and resize them up or down with retention of excellent print quality.
I hope you have use for this and are enjoying collecting all of these frames. I've aleady done a great page with this color combo above with all things I've created myself so far, so I'm very pleased with my learning progress! Yeah! When I get a little farther down this learning road, I will be offering lots of quick pages here on my blog. I'm excited and can't wait to get to that point also!
Taking off now to go put a pot of coffee on. The family will be up just anytime. I'll be back soon. I'm working on some paper packs to give you loyal scrappers!
