Happy Hump Day!!!

And its Wednesday again!!!! Just two more days to the weekend!! Yippeeee!! I enjoy my job don't get me wrong. Its a busy one and no two days are the same, but I do look forward to my weekend break! Some weeks are more busy and insane than others, and I suppose getting back into the swing of things after the Christmas break makes things a bit tiring too. Not to mention, 6 1/2 months preggy and a little extra weight to carry around will make you tired too!!! I know I know (I can hear those of you now with the mothering experience), "just wait til you are 8 and 9 months pregnant!! THEN you'll have more weight to carry around and be waddling like a duck!" I say.. BRING IT ON!!! :)

I got a nice little start on Trevor's "Man Cave" curtains for his room on Sunday. I got all the fabrics out on the floor, measured, cut and the sides sewn to the lining. Tonight I will get the side hems in place and hopefully the top hem ready to go. They are only simple panel drapes that will be hung with metal ring tabs. Hopefully he will have the rod up and installed by the weekend and I can complete them then.

While I was waiting for the curtain lining to be washed, I did take out the fabric kit Mum gave me for Christmas to make the baby crib quilt! I have the top made, and now its all set for layering and quilting. I just loooooove these fabrics and this quilt! The striped fabric is flannel and the green border is another EXTREMELY soft soft fabric! I can't WAIT to wrap my little boy in this quilt!

Here is one of the recipes I tried the other night! If you like Dijon mustard, you will enjoy this salmon recipe!

Dijon Garlic Salmon

4 Salmon Fillets
1/3 cup Dijon mustard (I didn't use that much as I only had 2 salmon fillets)
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 onion
1 tsp dried tarragon
salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375º C. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.

Arrange the salmon skin side down in the prepared pan, and lightly coat with the Dijon mustard. Place the garlic and onion slices on the fillets. Season with tarragon, salt and pepper.

Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the salmon is easily flaked with a fork.


Til Next Time!!

Quiltingly Yours

Ohh... I'm going to make this Salmon tonight. I actually have all ingredients on hand. I can't wait. Thank you for sharing.

Also - congrats on the little person coming soon. It is the hardest job you will ever do.. and also the most rewarding. But I'm sure you've heard that already.
