fried chicken

My mom found several different packages
of pillow cases that she thought would
be fun to make something
out of.

I decided to make more crop pants out
of the slate blue cases.

I think they turned out cute!

And thankfully Lucy wasn't copping
a model attitude but smiled
readily!

Oops, I think they are on backwards...
oh well, 3 year olds can get away
with that. 40 year olds, however, cannot.
Not that I've tried.




I was just tickled beyond words yesterday when
I got to go run some errands all.by.my.self.

Woo! What a rush.

When I got home it was approaching dinner time
and of course one of the first
questions I was asked (nicely of course) as I walked in the
door was the ever popular,

"What's for dinner?"

Which was asked by my sweet husband in a tone
that had a hint of fear that I would say,

soup and salad.

But much to his delight,
I announced that I was making my semi-annual
fried chicken!

To which he responded with bright eyes
and a giddy grin,

"Oooooh, somebody's trying to get lucky tonight!"

Right.

Yes, spending an hour over a big pan of
hot grease, leaving me smelling
like a KFC employee for the rest of the evening,
always puts me in an *amorous* mood.

And yes, I took a picture....knowing I could
make a post out of this kept me going
through the greasy process.

My mother used to make fried chicken, but I've done it. For me, it's easier to pick it up from the store.....

Would it be bad if I admitted I have NEVER made fried chicken in my live EVER?!

I love the capri's. Okay, you guys are going to have to help me. I got a sewing machine for Mother's day (I asked for it) and I have no clue how to sew:-) How do you make the capri's from a pillow case? I just can't wrap my brain around that one.

Those little capris are darling. I wish I hadn't scoffed so much at the Home Ech (sp? what does that stand for anyway) classes during high school.

Our daughters are about the same age. I think they would be fast friends. And my daughter has those darling sandles that you daughter is wearing. so cute.

I found your blog from the blog hop.

Do you soak your chicken in buttermilk? I had a recipe a long time ago and cannot find it.

Love the capris BTW. Love doing things w/ reclaimed fabric
