I've been feeling the urge to make things lately. Maybe it's the stifling heat that has us confined to the house or other temperature controlled space for 99% of the day. I've been taking William on our daily walk to the park at 7:30 a.m. and we are STILL drenched in sweat by the time we make it home at 8. Lovely.
The last thing I made today was the best: I made THESE TACOS from Smitten Kitchen. Maybe you've already made them because, like me, you impatiently check Smitten Kitchen's site on a daily basis, even though she regularly posts a couple of times a week, and when you see a recipe, you immediately print it and run to the market because you know her food is good. I love her recipes because she's so REAL and it comes across in her writing. In this recipe, she says to clear toddlers from the kitchen before grilling the corn on the stove. As I write this, there are charred corn kernels stuck to my heels, but I so don't mind. We devoured these tacos in like 5 minutes flat. Amazing. Bright tasting. Easy to make, even if they take a bit more time than a regular week night meal. Don't mind the lighting in the first picture; full manual is still hating me in our kitchen.
A handmade crib bumper may not seem like a big deal to most people, but y'all, I am so proud of it! Sewing STRESSES me out sometimes and I was so ecstatic when my measurements turned out right and the bumper actually FIT inside the crib!
So that's what I've been making lately. Does the heat have anyone else feeling crafty?
