I'm in, I had a ridiculously crafty cooking day yesterday, made and used up a ton of food. And started on a WIP. But I need motivation to start on the days my crafty mojo is running low.

Prompts for short crafty items.
Notecards, earrings, ATC, inchie, Draw something, zentangle, scrappy patch, regular patchwork block, zippered pouch, potato print, kite paper star, sewn felt hearts/other shapes, bake something, pull out leftovers and make a meal for tomorrow,

1-I decorated a blank TM patch.



2 I made and embroidered this one,. We have a saying in ireland ' Full of the joys of spring' and that was what this fabric made me think of.

Hey, GF too!!!  I've made it with arborio before but I'd love to find black rice somewhere.

Yup one of my dinner guests last night is Gluten and dairy free, so this was perfect. She loved it!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology (spikes)

SPEW:  
House: ravenclaw
Project Name: Pink Rosie
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Rosemary is a herb with spiky leaves, it is also delicious, It is said that rosemary planted by your door keeps witches away. I've also read that rosemary will only thrive in a place where the woman is the boss..whichever is true. It has taken me a few trys to get rosemary to thrive in my garden, but now it is.

This is a wonderful cocktail, it looks pretty and is actually good for you. And it is not too sweet, some cocktails can be cloying if you drink too many of them, this is really bright and refreshing.

Take about 5 healthy sprigs of rosemary, Add a cup of water, bring to the boil in a saucepan, add a cup of sugar and simmer gently until the liquid has reduced by half. Remove the rosemary and discard.

Allow the rosemary syrup to cool. (rosemary is really good for you, checkout these health benefits http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/266370.php_

1-2 teaspoon of syrup
3oz vodka (simply omit this for a non-alcoholic version, it tastes just as good)
6oz fresh pink grapefruit juice

shake with ice and serve in a martini glass.

Project Name: thai sticky black rice with mango sorbet
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) This is all about the congelation or change of state.

It is also easy and pretty impressive, I cooked dinner for some friends last night and I was able to cook this the night before and reheat the rice to serve.

You have to start with the right kind of rice, I get it in my local asian shop, it is called thai black rice. It is a whole grain but a different variety to regular rice. It is really simple to make, you simply cook the rice with a can of coconut milk in a saucepan, It takes about 45 minutes to cook, once done you stir in sugar and salt, topped with some toasted coconut shavings if you have them (I didn't) It also reheats really well in the microwave.

This was the recipe I followed. http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-coconut-black-rice-pudding-176861

it is traditionally served with mango, but ripe, nice to eat, mangos are rarer than hen's teeth in Ireland, so I used a large can of kesar mango pulp (30oz) I also got this from the asian store. Sorbets need about 20% sugar, a little more is OK. There was 5% sugar in the mango already, so I added more sugar, plus a little water to dissolve the sugar, lime juice and put it into an ice-cream maker.

can mango pulp (30oz)
5oz sugar
1/2 cup water
Juice of 2 limes.

dissolve the sugar in the water (warming it on the stove to help it dissolve if necessary)
mix in mango and lime, stir well. Put into an icecream maker.

If you don't have an icecream maker, just put it into a container into the freezer, take it out and stir it well to break up any ice crystals, after about an hour. repeat this once or twice more until it is frozen.

I managed to get a mango that was pretty ripe, so I had some fresh mango on the side.

I remembered to take a photo before I had eaten all the leftovers for lunch today.
