Like much of the US, it's been quite hot here this summer. Where we live, in northeast Georgia, we've finally felt some relief today, with temps only in the mid 70s. It rained this morning, which was also a nice change! I spent an hour or so out in the studio doing some screen printing, I machine quilted the small piece above (22" x 19") and I also finally finished painting my color wheels! WooHoo!! I am calling this piece "Sisters On Fire", because it reminds me so much of the forest fires that seemed to occur every July while I was attending the Quilters Affair in Sisters, OR....back in a previous life! One night, my roommate stayed up after I had gone to bed, and she came in and woke me so that I could see the red sky in the distance. GREAT! I had a very difficult time going back to sleep that night!
While Barker and I walked the golf course this morning, C went to the Farmers' Market. He brought home sweet corn, peaches, cranberry beans, okra, tomatoes, sweet peppers, sweet potato greens, yellow crookneck squash, new potatoes and these:
I just love Zinnias! Their colors are so bright and cheery!!
C grilled two pork tenderloins a few weeks ago, which was far more than enough meat for the two of us! I was charged with finding a use for the leftover pork, and after googling the aforementioned item, I realized that I could make Cuban Sandwiches! YaYYY! We lived in Miami for eight years, and I developed a healthy and steadfast love for those babies! I remember many nights when we would attend a minor league baseball game at the old Miami Stadium, stopping in Little Havana to pick up a Medianoche to keep us company during the game. Here's the final product of today's creation.
I hope to post a recipe for this tasty delight here within the next day or two.
OK, time to go stir fry those sweet potato greens..........I'll let you know how they turn out: May, our purveyor, tells us that they are sweet and delightful!
