This morning I decided to try making a fabric vase. I used a McCall’s pattern for this project and home decorator fabric as suggested in the instructions.
Because it’s made from fabric, I won’t use it for real flowers. Instead, I decided to use it for my knitting needles.
Last night I tried a new recipe from the February/March 2008 issue of Cook’s Country magazine. It took me what seemed like forever, but I made General Tso’s Chicken and it actually came out as well as that made in Chinese restaurants. My assessment is that the recipe is great, but it would be cheaper and less time-consuming to just go to a restaurant.
The same magazine had a recipe for Chinese-style Rice so I made that as well. Some pea pods on the side and our menu was complete. Yummy!
