My recent issue of "Healthy Cooking" arrived a couple weeks ago, but I'm just getting around to trying some of the recipes. Last Thursday I made the Spicy Chicken Chili and we all three really liked it. I just finished it up for lunch today. It's similar to a Chicken Tortilla Soup I've made before, but it doesn't have salsa or tortilla chips in it, although I sprinkled some broken chips on mine instead of crackers. I actually left out a lot of the "spicyness" like the hot peppers and the hot sauce, but the chili powder and cumin carried it quite well. We were out of sour cream when I made it, but I tried it with a dollop today and liked the cold contrast.
I have the zipper in Jessie's dress, but can't continue before another fitting. The daily fittings slow everything down for me, but I don't want to do something I regret later. Making sure the bodice fits snugly, but not too tightly, is a challenge.
I did finish Jane Eyre and really enjoyed it. I could see a few connections to the Thirteenth Tale, but I liked Jane much better. It was so romantic and taught some good spiritual lessons as well. I suppose I should stick with the classics--they never disappoint me!
Have a great day!
