What's happens in an Elefantz day?

Well, firstly there's stitching!
Some of the blocks from my new shabby roses quilt design, "Shabby Angels"...
 
 
 And then there is my reading...
And of course, cooking!
I saw this in the free Coles magazine at the supermarket yesterday...
So, I've got my own version ready to go in the oven!
I'm using a whole chicken stuffed with rice, sage and onion, instead of chicken pieces; and the vegetables are potato, carrot, fennel, zucchini, onion, garlic and lemons. Another hour and it should be ready - just in time for Mr E to bring Blossom home from work. Yummo!
My darling husband bought me a new kitchen appliance the other day. Our six year old vegetable juicer finally uttered it's last breath - we juice vegetables every single day so it really earned it's keep!
My new juicer is even better, though! So easy to clean, and it came with a book of juice recipes. I'm excited to be making some new ones.
In between sewing, reading, cooking and juicing, I've been watching a few of mine and Blossom's favourite movies...
It's been a nice day!
How was yours?
Hugs
Jenny

Julie Julia is on my list of movies I want to see, especially since she would have recently celebrated her 100th birthday. I spy a crochet hook!

Hmm, I finished up 5 quilt tops and am quilting a 6th baby quilt for my daughter. Her son goes to a parochial school up North (washington state) and she asked if I would make a quilt(s) to donate to raise money for the school...of course I will! Your chicken looks yummy! Thanks for sharing, Elaine

Hi Jenny,
Love the new look of your blog :-) I've been down with a back problem for a couple weeks so my handwork has been crocheting hexes for a guest room afghan. I can add some movie titles to your list - Steel Magnolias, Mama Mia and Firelight are some of my favorites. You've inspired me to have Brad put a roast and veggies in the oven for tonight.

I get the impression that my days are much louder than yours!

Your embroidery is so pretty I like the same movies you like!! I have been thinking about a juicer, now maybe I am a little bit more convinced.
