That was my nickname for a few hours when my false front tooth decided to fall out just an hour before we had 4 couples over for dinner. Makes for a long evening when you are trying not to talk; laugh; smile or eat. Fortunately Sumo loves me no matter what!! I went to the dentist this morning and he fixed it temporarily so I can at least go out in public. The biggest bummer is that the Tooth Fairy didn't show. (I think she's at a wheat convention somewhere, right mom?)
It's a very strange feeling. Brought back memories of loosing teeth when I was a child.
I finished knitting the Lucy bag just in time for my talk yesterday. I think it's going to be a nice color combination once it's felted. I'll be giving it to one of my BFF's! (I think she knows who she is...) I won't be able to felt it until after my next talk on the 28th. It's always hard to wait because felting them is so fun.
I had a another new experience yesterday as I was getting ready for our friends to come over... I cut my first Mango ever. I really mangled the first one, but by the time I had cut my fourth one, I was feeling pretty confident. They really are tasty!! What was I doing with my mangos?
Making Mango Salsa!! Yum! A friend had shared this recipe, and I decided to make it for our appetizer for our dinner. Since I seem to be doing more cooking that knitting lately, I thought I would share this recipe. My friend Tami made up the recipe and was gracious enough to let me share it with you.
3 red, yellow or orange peppers
1 small red onion
Juice from 2 limes
1. Chop up the mangos, peppers and onions. Tear apart the cilantro leaves.
2. Throw the mangos, peppers and 1/2 of the chopped onion together and five or six leaves of cilantro.
3. Add a couple tablespoons of lime juice. I usually
taste at this point to make sure one ingredient isn't too strong.
4. Add in more onion, lime juice and/or cilantro to taste.
Well, I'm off for an overnight to Des Moines. Lots of exciting stuff coming next week as I head to St. Louis early Tuesday morning for the Spring Fling!
Have a great weekend!
Until Next Time....
