Not much quilting going on around here, so I thought I would share a quick and easy recipe with you. A great way to use up left over chicken. My family has enjoyed this recipe many times. It's quick and easy to put together.
Chicken Fajita Pizza
2 whole chicken breasts, skinned, boned, cut into 2 x 1/2" strips (or 2 cups leftover chicken, cut up)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup thinly sliced onions
1 cup green or red bell pepper strips
1 (10 oz) can Pillsbury Refrigerated All Ready Pizza Crust
1/2 cup prepared mild salsa
8 oz (2 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese
In large skillet over medium high heat, stir fry chicken in oil for about 5 minutes. Stir in chili powder, salt and garlic powder. Add onions and peppers; stir fry until veggies are tender crisp.
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 13 x 9 inch pan. Unroll pizza dough and place in greased pan; starting at center press out with hands. Bake at 425 for 6 minutes or until very light golden. Remove from oven and spoon chicken mixture over partially baked crust. Spoon salsa over chicken; sprinkle with cheese. Bake an additional 14 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
I have gotten myself together to show you what I bought on my vacation. It was so fun finding and exploring new quilt shops
I started out slow with these fat quarters.
I love fabric with words, and was delighted to find these in two color ways.
I have been admiring Accentuate the Positive by It's So Emma. When I found this at a JoAnn's I gave a little squeal, cause I could use my 40% off discount coupon! I've not seen any of It's So Emma patterns in our area.
My friend took me to a fabulous quilt shop that was having a 30% off sale on all of their fabric. Including sale fabric!! So of course I had to get a little bit to bring home with me :-)
And on the way home, we stopped at Hancock's in Paducah.
Discounted patterns and..........
do you recognize this fabric?? Paris Flea Market.............. all on sale! I'm telling you, if I lived any where near Hancock's I would be broke all the time.
So my quilt shop/fabric adventure turned out pretty rewarding.
I've been looking online and checking out knitting videos from the library. The first DVD was really the best for teaching the basics.
This was where I learned how to make the dish cloths. Tracie Wunderlich does a fabulous job of going through each process slowly and understandably. What I like about the DVD's is that I can stop them and re-watch anything I did not understand.
The second DVD really has helped me to learn about the different stitches and what some of the symbols mean.
There are some projects too, but I've used it mainly to understand a lot of terms that completely had me confused.
So I found this pattern at the Knitting Geek. It's called The Simplest Shawl in Stockinette Stitch. I really want to learn how to make shawls. I pulled out some left over yarn, and started working the pattern. It was going pretty well, until I realized that I was not making the pattern on the Purl side. I ripped it all out and started again. This time when I did a yarn over I did another loop over the needle as when doing the Purl stitch the yarn needs to be in the front. So far it's working. Whether I am doing it right or not, I'm not sure, but for my sample pieces I'm happy that the pattern is working.
