We lived in Puerto Rico for three years and learned to like several of the more typical fare. One thing we learned to enjoy was Plantain... a type of banana unlike the ones we are used to here in the US. There are recipes for using it when it is not yet ripe... and when it is VERY ripe. That is our favorite. You wait until it is nearly black.... then slice like french fries and deep fry it. Very sweet. So we had that for dinner last night along with deep fried Tilapia and a pepper, onion and kidney bean melange.... Puerto Rican's eat a LOT of beans!
Here is the picture of the dinner.
But now on to the Full Tilt Boogie Journal I am making. I started working on it a few weeks ago and remarked on it here............ Click here to read that blog entry if you want.
So by working a bit yesterday and today, in between customers in my antique shop, I managed to put the book together and am pleased. I would not win any awards for the stitching but it fine... I will get better. After gluing and such today I will be letting it sit and dry well before I go ahead and work on it. It may not be for another week but now that the book is finished it will call out to me I am sure!!!
A couple of weeks ago I went through my digital photos and arranged to have print copies made at out local CVS drugstore. I will use some of those pics in the journal. I will include pictures of the garden in winter and summer and the birds and animals that visit as well as some pictures of our cats. It will just fill up as I feel inspired.
The book I ended up using was not one I showed in the first blog entry. This was an old business journal I found at a local flea market for $1.00. I added a piece of scrapbook paper to the cover, to cover up some messiness.
So here are the pictures.
Here is to Mary Ann Moss for another great and inspiring class!
