in a large bowl, combine the shredded chicken, salsa, taco seasoning and 1/2 the bag of cheese, and mix well. remove the tops and insides of all bell peppers, then slice in half lengthwise, creating little bowls from each half. fill each pepper half with the chicken mix, then top with desired amount of cheese. bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 20-30 minutes.

quilting, part 1.

so when life decided it was time to shake things up and handed me a fair bit more spare time than i had been working with, i decided it was time to try making a quilt. after a trip to the fabric stores, i had this to work with...

next was a night of tv and the cutting of many squares.

then, because i had an uneven amount of all the squares, i decided to simply lay them out in a visually agreeable way.

and then pinned them into the rows i had laid out for sewing.

sewing commenced, one row at a time.
