My husband, Moussa, is from The Ivory Coast. Over 20 years ago, when we were newlyweds, He could not wrap his mind around the thought of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I, on the other hand, could not come to terms with the idea of chicken, onions, and savories in peanut butter? Well, it only took one bite to change my mind. The other night he made some for dinner, and today I get to yum up the left overs for lunch!!!!
I'm sure that it wont taste as good as his (sorry guys) but I found a recipe here, that looks pretty good if you'd like to give it a try!
I guess I must be missing the outdoor blooms that go hand-in-hand with the warmer weather. I've been adding crochet flowers to just about everything I can get my hands on. I added a bunch of flowers that I made using the fleur galore crochet pattern, from here. I even decorated a wreath with them. I'll try to post the pictures from that tomorrow.
This Christmas, everyone seems to be short on time to craft. I've been getting e-mails from folks asking about more ready to wear items, so I posted these new goodies, on my site today. It's a little collection of pieces made in shades of alabaster. Looks like I've been quite the busy little elf myself! I'm also going to be re-stocking the store on Friday night. I just love the holidays at the store. Its so nice to see folks picking up and trying on, and asking questions. I so love wrapping up pretty packages for people, and walking them walk out the door aglow in holiday smiles!!! If you're in NYC over the holidays, please pop in and say "Howdy". If you don't get to the city, you can visit my site at www.francinetoukou.com. Hope to see you!!
