New chicken, new plants, and a new purse for me

This is what's been goin' down in my town...

If you know me, I heart Mojitos. Its pretty much the only drink I can make at home mainly because I have this huge abundance of mint in my backyard. The other day I had an epiphany. If I love mojitos so much, why don't I just make chicken with the same ingredients!!! It worked! So so good that even the Ceej and my neice gobbled it up!

After thinking long and hard, I decided that growing my own vegetables isn't most economical thing to do. You don't save a whole lot of money growing your own because you spend so much time taking care of it. Besides, the local farmers depend on us to survive! Plus I really don't have the land to raise a variety of vegetables. But somehow I got talked into it (by my own mother and father in law). Let's see how it grows. Give me a few weeks and I'll give you an update. Got tomatoes (2 types) and green beans coming...crossing my fingers that they don't die too early before I get a little crop.

Last by not least, I finally got around to sewing something for myself. I had about a year of sewing a lot of gifts and things related to cloth diapering. I deserve it! Especially since this fabric only cost me less than $2 and less than 2 hours of labor.

  1. you can grow herbs, they are much easier to take care of and you can always use some fresh herbs. it's kinda of a waste to buy a big bunch of herbs at the market, since most of the time you only need a tiny bit.
