The three piles in the front left are to go to people. Books of stationery to write in-oppps almost falling off the table there hahaha.
Beautiful sunshine streaming into the craft room, unfortunately at the far end from where I sit.
Postcrossing swaps, I like collecting maps of various citys/countries. This one came from Kyoka in California.....and of course the beautiful stamps below
I put in some chicken thighs cut into small pieces.
lemon rind of 1 lemon
salt and pepper
Continental Parsley and normal parsley from my garden (a handful of each, chopped up)
mint leaves from my garden (a handful, chopped up)
some chicken seasoning because it tasted bland to me
leek (love leek, use it all the time in winter)
and yep it tasted even better than the one I bought tee hee
I added some pasta to bulk it up as hubby does not like watery soup. If you could just lick my screen or smell it and taste it you would know what I mean by it being delicious LOL. That lemon flavour makes a huge difference in taste-so unique. OK I've talked myself into a second bowl now LOL.
I made some up last week and didnt add the continental parsley it made a huge difference to the taste, now I will always add it.
UPDATE: Ms Julia wanted to know the ingredients to the Portugese seasoning so she could make her own so here it is:
5 tbsp paprika
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp clove
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 bay leaf (not sure if this is 1/4 tsp or an actual 1/4 of a leaf )
Grind all together
