I’ve always enjoyed reading. I fancied myself quite the writer when I was younger. Where the rubber meets the road, I never made that happen for myself…..until now! As it turns out, for a few dollars and a little pulling your own hair out, you can own a blog on this little internet. Voila! I’m an author.
I encourage you to read the “About Me Page”. It will help see from where I came, where I am, and where I’m headed. My desire is to create a blog for today’s woman. More specifically, today’s quilting, cooking, child raising, still look pretty for your partner, God fearing, wine drinking woman. I cannot wait to do this with your help.
As my first official post, I thought I would give you a taste of topics of what’s to come!
For the Quilter: English Paper Piecing (EPP, ASAP), Quilt Art Collage (guess who will becoming a certified instructor next month?!), 1930’s feed sack, stash busting, we can even talk 108″ wide back and binding. I’d like to review notions, new and old. Hey, anything to make our quilting life easier, right? I will do my best to keep up with local shop hops, quilt shows, and feature a designer, pattern writer or someone of inspiration.
For the cook: I will be sharing tried and true recipe’s! I will also share new ones that we can make together for the first time. Both kid friendly, as well as “you will eat what I cook!”
In that vein, it being cook out Memorial Day weekend and all, I’d like to share my very own Hamburger recipe! This came from trial and error, about 10 different recipes, and a couple of meat eating kids! How about a challenge to kick this off! Make the recipe below, share your thoughts and comments…..and lets NAME IT TOGETHER. I’m not opposed to “Jenn’s Burgers” but, I bet ya’ll can do better. READY? Challenge given:
2 lbs of ground beef (80/20)
1 lbs pan sausage
1 egg, beaten
3/4 tsp. Onion Powder
3 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
3 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
Combine all with your hands in medium bowl, form patties and grill over medium heat 6 minuets per side. Top with your favorite hamburger toppings! Serve. Recipe yields 6-8 servings!
I can’t wait to see your comments after you try them and your creative names for the recipe.
Until next time, SewFarSewGood.
