Indian Fried Cabbage & Needlework

I want to go straight to the needlework but I best do the Indian Fried Cabbage first. I found it on a site Center Cut Cook. She has an amazing recipe site, oh and this one isn't just for vegetarians even if the recipe I chose is.

In the introduction, she said they added tomatoes and potatoes to make it more hearty but there was no mention of how you were supposed to add them or when so I improvised. I cut a potato into eighths and boiled the pieces in plain water until they softened up then I added the tomatoes and spices and simmered it for a bit while cutting up the cabbage. Then I added the cabbage and peas as directed in the recipe.

I was also missing coriander so the taste was not as nice as it could have been and presentation was downright ugly. It wasn't terrible and I ate two servings before putting the rest in the fridge for later. I still haven't frozen it but I imagine it would be like anything else put it into a freezer bag, get as much of the air out as possible and put it in the freezer for another day.

Right now my freezer is full of chicken breasts and pork chops in a variety of sauces and marinades so there isn't much room for anything else.

When I started this blog back in 2011 I had no idea where I was going with it and I realized as I went looking for the crazy quilt stuff I did a few years ago it really is not well organized nor properly titled so I was not able to share any of the links with you to show you what I was working on.

I have several hobbies/crafts I fall back on when what I've been doing gets boring as the swap-bot stuff did a few months ago. I was looking around on Pinterest and I found a number of colouring pages that I thought would work well as embroidery patterns. The one for November still needs one last element but for the most part, it is finished and should be finished as of the 30ith. The first image is the base piece, the second is the colouring page & the third is what is done now.

The part that is missing is the snowflakes. I am debating rather to use a sparkly bead for them or an actual snowflake shape. I have both available but ...

The other things I've been working on are a couple of lego items. One is an advent calendar for me and the other is a manger with lego characters. The advent calendar is missing its numbers & its house but that is an easy fix. The manger is missing all of its characters but it's just a matter of taking the time to locate the pieces to build them.
