The standard in my routine is to mill my wheat and make loaves of whole wheat yumminess for the family. I started out with making a couple of loaves at a time and have gone to FOUR now to accommodate the increased consumption. But I would like to branch out with more breads.  We use tortillas a lot so that seems like a good place to start, right?


At least with the recipe that I had... It's not that they tasted bad but they were crispy and leathery at the same time - not at all pliable to make a burrito.

So, this batch went to an impromptu, made up concoction that turned out quite tasty!?

Pesto Chicken Pizzas

Spread pesto (I used my homemade goodness created with my husband's home grown fresh garden basil last summer) on the tortilla. 

Sprinkle chicken on that.

Put a few onions on next.

Slice some tomatoes kinda thin and layer them on next.

Then cheese... my husband doesn't ever like to skip cheese.

I sprinkled a little parsley flakes on top of the cheese to make it look "pretty".

Yeah. They were good. The leftover whole wheat tortillas? Not so much.

I found this tutorial and couldn't resist. Ugh! So clever! I made a minor change to it and was not disappointed. Basically all that this is is a piece of five or six foot rebar pounded about two feet in the ground and then terra cotta pots threaded onto it. Brilliant! Yes?! I even found the pots in a chocolate color to make it just a little more "mine".

Oh, and just to make it clear... I brought all the supplies home and showed the blog post to my husband and *HE* did all the labor. He doesn't mind this sort of "honey-do". Sweet man.
I'm chatting with a sweet friend of mine last Thursday afternoon and she was wearing this pretty necklace that I couldn't seem to take my eyes off. Then it hits me! I've seen this very necklace on one of my (voluminous) blogs that I follow and then all the questions come flying out of me...

"I LOVE that! Did you make it?"

"Was it easy??"

"You found that on Pinterest, didn't you??!?!" (She is a fellow Pinterest junkie - like me.)

I meekly looked over at my husband this afternoon and asked him if I could make a run to Hobby Lobby.
His face got that defeated look and he quietly said, "Yes." But I knew it really meant things like, "Oh no. How much is this trip going to cost?" or "Doesn't she have everything in that crap, er, CRAFT closet of hers that Hobby Lobby carries??" 

I come home with 20 gauge jewelry wire, and 8mm glass pearl beads. (Well, I brought home a little more than that but for this blog post that's all that is relative.)

And then I opened up this blog post tutorial (the same one that my sweet friend used for her work of loveliness) and went at it. 

It was just as easy as it looked/sounded and here's my sweet Bird Nest Necklace.
