Theme Thursday - Flying

I might win the award for the tiniest wings in this week's challenge. The stamp is one of Paula Best. The tag is inked with Aidrondacks Juniper and looks mighty different in real life. So, here's my offering.

Open Theme at SPA

I was fooling around with my oil pastels, and started adding elements and monkeying around with stamps and other words, I threw everything at it but the kitchen sink. That's still safe! Thanks for looking!

No Art, but Cooking Adventures

I used to like to cook, but for the last few years it's become more of a chore. I do like FoodNetwork, tho...and Saturday I caught Ann Burrell's "Secrets of a Restaurant Chef" - she was making French Onion Soup and Ham and Mortadella with Provolone and Spicy red pepper sauce sandwiches (phew, try saying that fast three times).

I had never had Mortadella before. I read the reviews and all the folks who made the recipe raved about it. And I love French Onion printed out the recipes and got the ingredients.

Now, French Onion Soup is labor gotta let it simmer for a long time. I cut up 8 onions, and you know what takes the tears out of onions? You freeze them first! I didn't know it. Sure enough...8 onions, no tears!

I didn't know Mortadella was a high end bologna with bits of pistachio and fat in it..but it was pretty tasty. Nice new experience!

So, I spent Sunday cooking all afternoon...but I have to tell you, it was so worth it!!!! Those sandwiches (on ciabatta bread) are so good that you literally want to fall down and worship!!! :o)

Even the hot pepper sauce, I couldn't find Fresno (red) peppers at Wegman's, so had to settle for Anaheim peppers which are green. I figured Anaheim is in California, too, so that would have to do (LOL, one has nothing to do with the other!)

Hmmm...maybe I'll sign up for cooking school!!! LOL!!! But I will say...Ann Burrell knows her stuff!! Wooohoooo!!!

Gothic Arches - Domestic Goddess

The theme sure is interesting. I loved the images I found and couldn't help the one in the bottom left hand corner...we're more than just domestic, I hope!

Three Muses Fun and Games

I haven't played here since my surgery. I'm on tbe mend except for anemia, but c'est la vie! Anyway, I used my acrylics, overpainted them with gesso, then rubbed on some blending chalk. I found this happy little guy who's obviously having fun (maybe I can borrow his wheels and zoom around on my walker!) Thanks for looking!
