A mixture of having quite a bit on my plate right now along with being a bit unsure of where to focus my energy has led to nothing productive to show again today.
I laid out and was just about to cut this pattern when I put the tissue piece for the belt around my waist and came up almost 2 inches shy of reaching around. I am in a quandary as how to proceed.
This is the envelope flap. Which clearly puts this pattern as WWII.
I will be making a peach pie today due to the fact that I bought some peaches on sale last week and they are ripe and need to be made into something lovely. Hubby loves pie. He will be so happy. I pulled out the "mother of all cookbooks" and there is a simple peach pie in it. I have some blueberries and will most likely throw those in too. Pictures of that tomorrow.
Here is a photo of my lovely porch and the delightful sunlight that streamed in as I ate my breakfast yesterday and looked through the "mother" cookbook.
This table is enamel and wood. I don't know if I captured it in the photo.
And who could not love this strawberry cotton tablecloth?

And lastly, I made the most delicious crock pot dinner the other night and wanted to share it with you here. I would also like to re-create it again so writing it down might be helpful as I just pulled the whole thing out of my head. There is zero advanced preparation for this so it is simple as pie to make. I used all organic ingredients which for me, makes it extra yummy. It does not really photograph well. Looks like a pile of mush, but take my word for it, it was really good.
6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1-28 oz can whole tomatoes with juice
1-15 oz can white beans
1/2 cup white wine
6 cloves garlic-peeled but left whole
1/2 onion sliced
4 ribs celery sliced-chopped
1/4 cup capers with some of the juice from the jar.
2-teaspoons fine herb
2-large pinches of kosher salt (I would guess almost 2 teaspoons) the capers are salty so add the salt afterward so you don't over salt it.
I don't really know the exact amount of oregano, fine herb, salt or pepper I added.
Put it all in the crock pot, give it a stir and cook on high for 8-10 hours!
I served this over brown organic jasmine rice! It was so delicious!!!
While it was cooking, the smell of it made me think it was going to be icky! We would have eaten it anyway, but I was not imagining it was going to be so delish!
Come over for some peach pie! See you tomorrow.
