I would love to start a baby book for our little bundle of joy.   I have no clue where to start.

Gorgeous!  Care to share your crab chart?  I agree it is even cuter than the fish.

I haven't been tempted by a swap in a long time.  This has me tempted.

LimeRiot - I am headed home today and plan to look through the book in hopes of putting together a pattern. 

I have two good reasons - a) I am working on a huge project that is going to take forever and I need a break b) I would like a small project for an upcoming trip.  I'll be on a train for 30 hours. 

I think I may use fabric from an old button up shirt from Mr. Boo.

Thanks for the inspiration.

This is up their alley and frankly, I would love to hear what Karl has to say. Have you seen An Idiot Abroad?  if you haven't I cannot recommend it enough.  Poor Karl really suffers when he is outside his comfort zone.  This is not a mind designed to be opened up by experiences abroad.

I believe I have this very same crewel book and have wanted to do something similar.  I just couldn't figure out what to use the pattern with.  I would never have thought of a printed fabric.  Now I am and it has opened up a whole new world of possibilities. 

Thanks for sharing your lovely piece.

The taste is hard to describe because it is very subtle.  It is a bit like a leek and potato mixed with a touch of sprouts.  Does that make sense?
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Scrambled Eggs & Flowers on: May 03, 2012 09:15:49 AM
I currently live in Costa Rica and have decided to start writing about the food I eat here.  Though I am a vegetarian many of the recipes are really appropriate for everyone like this little gem, Torta de Flor de Itabo.   You can also see my full blog post at http://www.chicaenglish.com/my-blog/2012/05/scrambled-eggs-and-flowers.html

So here is a recipe for Flor de Itabo which are yucca flowers. If you live in the southwest no doubt you seem them everyday. I bet you didn't know that pretty white petals edible. In Costa Rica markets and roadside full of Flor de Itabo branches mark the coming of Easter known here as Semana Santa since it blooms March though April.

They are an excellent source of vitamin C and also contain iron, phosphorus and niacin, as well as fiber. So these little boogers are nutritious too!

Torta de Flor de Itabo

Remove petals from the plant being careful not to pinch or damage until you have approximately 1 cup.  Wash carefully.

Next Place the flowers in boiling water and cook about 5 minutes until soft.  The petals should still be crisp but tender.  Drain and transfer to a plate.

Peel 5 small potatoes and boil. Then roughly mash. Set aside.

Heat a small amount of canola oil and saute finely diced onion and one clove of garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent.

Then add the Flor de Itabo and eggs. Mix to scramble ensuring the Itabo is well coated. Cook until the eggs are almost done and then add the potatoes.

Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
