it was very yummy with a cup of chocolate! i also went to country village and took some hip scarves i sewed for my friend dena, for her shop ottoman trading company. she liked the way they came out, so she gave me these beautiful turkish textiles to make some more! so, i will be busy for a little while, sewing up hip scarves for belly dancing!
i also went to a thrift store on the way home...couldn't resist after being stuck inside for so long! apparently many others felt the same, 'cause the little tiny store i go to near country village was fairly packed! i found a very nice cookbook, 'the vegetarian hearth' by darra goldstein. while i am not vegetarian, i have one of her other cookbooks, 'the georgian feast', foods from the republic of georgia in eastern europe. this one has some of the same recipes in it, lots of beet recipes, (i love beets!) and the yummy georgian cheese bread, khachapuri. while i was working for the designer a couple years back, her mother in law came from georgia to stay with them. the house always smelled wonderful, and she cooked this bread for us for lunch one day. it was so delicious, so i found the book, (the only georgian cookbook i could find in print at the time!) and made some of the things in it. i also made the khachapuri, and me and my lactose-intolerant daughter ate the whole thing! she said the suffering after was worth it!
today i also have to pick up a dress from the shop in seattle for alterations...no work for weeks, and now plenty to do! i was not that crazy about the idea of driving to seattle yesterday, especially after i went to bothell and there was still a bit of slushy snow in places. my little mustang does not do well in icy, slushy roads! should be fine today though, i think. it has rained enough to clear things up quite well.
