My beloved drove away early Sunday morning with his mate, Dave, for a 4 day road trip down to Maryborough. This is where the annual Ulysses AGM is being held this year, and it was an opportunity for the guys to test ride the new Honda.
This is the bike my man wanted to check out in person...
Turned out it wasn't as comfortable as he'd hoped, so then he tried out a new Honda Goldwing...
...which he liked much better.
Over the course of 4 days he drove for 38 hours, so I am just glad he got home safe and awake last night. At least we got to cross one bike off our list for the future. ;-)
While my man was off with his buddy I stayed home with Blossom and did some stitching, and re-arranging.
I started with my desk, which was so loaded down with 'stuff' piled across it that I struggled to keep on track with my many to-do lists because I could not find them!
But now, bliss. All in it's place.
On my sewing table I tweaked the centre block of my new BOM,
"Shabby Roses Beauty"...
...by adding little applique corners.
I am loving these 'Hill Farm' fabrics by Brenda Riddle.
They have brought my new design to life!
This BOM will run over 6 months and be available through my e-zine, Elefantz HOME.
Block 1 will be released in the May 3rd issue.
Subscription details HERE.
I've also drawn up a new Scripture-themed design, and will be stitching that over the weekend.
This is something I want to do regularly...share God's precious Word with needle and thread.
Something else I did whilst Mr E was road-tripping with Dave, was try a few simple grain-free meals.
For lunch on Tuesday I only needed two ingredients...
Haloumi cheese is eaten 'dry-fried'.
Heat the frypan as hot as it will go, thinly slice the Haloumi cheese, and lay the slices into the pan. Within a minute you can flip them to the other side and they have turned golden and the flavour is amazing!
Slice your apple, and when you have finished dry-frying the cheese, repeat the process by dry-frying the apple slices. They almost caramelise! Just a couple of minutes each side, and the flavour of the Haloumi mixes with the apple and you get a taste explosion when eaten together!
I used about 1/3rd of the block of Haloumi, and one apple - all up around 280 calories. I was so full afterwards that I didn't eat till dinner. This is definitely going to be enjoyed on a regular basis.
The recipe came from Sarah Wilson's "I Quit Sugar" book.
My beloved is having a rest day today, so I am going to enjoy having him all to myself!
I hope your day is restful too.
