An abundance of food with my quilts, and sometimes a quick and easy recipe!

Photos of breakfast, lunch, and dinner on my quilts. Including photos from my container garden. Sometimes, I will post a quick and easy recipe. This is my "just for fun" BLOG ! I see so many things that inspire my quilting!

Fresh Basil and Parsley Starting to Grow!

When it is snowing and blowing outside it is refreshing to have a few plants sprouting.

 Can't get to any rocks outside --- so I will use some bottle caps from the recycling bin.

I planted them together just for the fun of it!

 Moved all my living room plants to the west windows so they will get as much light as possible.

It will be fun to watch the herbs grow in the jar.

A Quilter's Eggs and Fried Rice - Easy Recipe

Pan fry pre cooked rice with a little olive oil. I pre cooked my rice the night before, in the microwave and then refrigerated it.
After the rice is hot, make a hole in the center of the rice for the egg. Add the egg.
Squish the yoke.
Season however you would like. I add a little pepper, but I do not add salt.  I don't like to add salt.
Flip the egg and break the egg up into pieces.
Mix the egg with the rice.
Serve hot with colorful fruits and nuts.
 Add a flower for color contrast, but don't eat it if you add an African Violet as they are not edible.

 Everything tastes better, when it looks pretty --- Like at quilt!

I take the flower out and put it in a tiny vase and I can enjoy the bloom for a few more days.
 Add one blackberry to my ice water.

That's a quilter's lunch!
And that's why lunch looks like a quilt to me!
Enjoy your day!
