41  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2017 QuiltAlong on: December 08, 2017 12:58:45 PM
So last night at my guild meeting we had all the former presidents of the guild there! A couple left before we snapped a pic, but we got one with 6 of 8 of us.  I title this picture "Me and Tamara with a bunch of Quilt Famous people."  Grin



From left to right, Tamara, Violet Craft (fabric and pattern designer), me, Susan Beal  (author of many craft books, including World of Geekcraft and Modern Log Cabin Quilting), Christina Cameli (author of First Steps to Free Motion Quilting amongst others), and Jen Carlton-Bailley (singlehandedly made 1/4 circle piecing popular, featured in magazines allll the time).

Pretty sure they've all got Craftsy classes too! And I think at least 2 of them have been on that PBS quilting show Fresh Quilting. Anyway, just wanted to brag on my friends and the talent I'm surrounded by!!

I'll be working up to the deadline, as always. There's like one more step on about 7 different projects. I'm not worried about it, I just gotta keep going. And then all the fun of wrapping  Grin I love wrapping paper.

Me too! I am finishing up the larges today  and then have a few more little things to put together! I am Queen of the Last Minute!

I am about 75% finished with the projects! Though, I may have to send two packages because I'm not sure I can economically fit them all into one! Wink A large flat rate just won't do I think  Shocked

Ditto for needing 2 boxes I think! I mapped out what I need to craft each day from now until sendouts to make it on time. Yay lists!

I am so obsessed with the sweet potato goat cheese combo! I've also been adding a little chevre to my butternut squash soup!
48  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Roasted Sweet Potato with Goat Cheese and Garlic Herb Oil on: October 30, 2017 06:18:31 PM
I may have eaten cake for lunch, so I may have been craving a veggie-centric dinner!



Roasted Sweet Potato with Goat Cheese and Garlic Herb Oil

This makes 3 very large, meal sized servings or 6-8 side servings

Pre-heat oven to 450*. Grease a baking sheet

Ingredients:

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
2 cups baby portobello mushrooms, halved
olive oil
salt and pepper

3 tablespoons goat chevre
3 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
Garlic Herb Oil (see below)

In a medium sized bowl, coat sweet potato with olive oil and salt and pepper. Stir well and then place onto baking sheet. Cook for 20 minutes. Add mushrooms to bowl and seasong with oil, salt, and pepper. Stir sweet potatoes, push to one side, and add mushrooms to other side. Cook for 15 minutes, stir and cook for 15 minutes more. To plate as meal sized dishes, plate mushrooms and sweet potatoes into 3 bowls and then crumble 1Tablespoon chevre and 1 Tablespoon pomegranate seeds on top. Drizzle each with 1-2 teaspoons of garlic herb oil.




Garlic Herb Oil:

1/4 cup olive oil
6 cloves garlic, crushed
1 T dried Herbes de Provence, or other dried or fresh herbs of choice.

In a 1 cup or larger glass container, heat all ingredients in microwave for 1 minute while watching to make sure it doesn't boil over (this is to cook the garlic to take the raw bite off of it, if you prefer you can do this step in a small pan on the stove). Use as is, or I prefer to blend it up and then drizzle. Keep the extra in fridge and use on a variety of foods for a hit of garlic-savory-numminess.

I served this with a stupid-simple salad--crisp romaine, radishes sliced super thin, a homemade vinaigrette and plenty of kosher salt and coarse black pepper.



And here's a gratuitous cake picture! Normally I'm a "chocolate or don't bother" kind of girl but I've been craving pineapple upside down cake for about a week, so I made it so. Luckily my boyfriend has a potluck at work tomorrow, the two of us don't need a whole cake!  Smiley

I started a large today and plan to be more than halfway done before bedtime!

Hmm, can you post a picture? I have a couple ideas but not sure what might work. I recently did just make a bunch of bunting/garland out of some Christmas fabric, if you can fussy cut it that would work. Or maybe a quilted table runner/table topper/placemats?
