Souvlaki. And a Pillow.

Here's a little project I did in about 30 minutes yesterday. I have had this little throw pillow for years and years but it had a horrible faux-suede cover and I almost got rid of it several times. I finally decided to do something with it. So now it has a new life in William's room as a matchy-matchy pillow. I just sewed up the two long sides and then attached blue ribbon to tie the end closed. It's totally cute! And very nice to have when feeding the babe (the Boppy doesn't really work very well in this chair).

We also tried something new for dinner last night. This is Chicken Souvlaki (Greek) from a recipe I saved from a Real Simple almost 3 years ago (I have so many "recipes to try" that it really does take years to get them). The recipe is here. My only modifications were to add some salt to the cooked chicken (it was a bit bland) and I used Trader Joe's frozen Naan instead of pita bread because, well, that's what I had. It was so good! John and a certain picky-eater I know even really liked it! I had the leftovers for lunch today and it was so yummy. A really great summer dinner.

I'll have two more baby blankets done by tomorrow with pictures to show you. Phew! And then finally I can move on to something new! (The something new will still be baby related...but at least no more blasted scalloped-edge blankets!)
