Rainbows & Kittens and Snacks & Quiltings...

A couple days ago I went outside and saw...
...a huge, wonderful, colorful rainbow over my sky!...
Immediately on my brain played the song
Somewhere over the rainbow...
I LOVE that song!
I've found this one on YouTube from Eric Clapton,
and I couldn't resist to insert it in here for all of you to enjoy:
And since today I'm about sharing beautiful things...
 I just can't resist to show you...
at first I thought they were only three...
 
 
Oh boy!, was I wrong!...
There's six of them,
 but the mama took one away and I can't find it.
Aren't they gorgeous?, the cutiest little things!
They all have problems with their eyes, so I've been washing it every day, hopping they will be alright.
Who could resist and not take care of these cuties...?

They are my friends and keep me company.

 
Any who...
Also during this last week
I've finished another string quilt.
It's a smaller one (about crib size) and I think it came out pretty good.
 
 
It's quite fun to make this string quilts,
and I'm already planning a new one.
I'll show you when it's done.
 
I've also been cooking a little,
and I had been looking for quick and simple recipes,
kinda like quick snacks.
I found one for tuna bites
(in one of my culinary books).
Very easy and quick, and tasty also.
For the ingredients you will need: 
  • 2 tuna cans (in water), drained
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • parsley
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • vegetable oil to brush

Drain the tuna and mash it with the egg, salt, pepper and parsley.
Add the breadcrumbs, mixing well, and then the wheat flour, just enough to bind everything together.
Form small balls with your hands (about 1" each).
Let it chill for about 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (about 200 Celsius).
Grease a cookie sheet (or just use parchment paper as I did) and space the tuna balls evenly on the sheet, brushing each one with a little vegetable oil. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.
Really tasty!
Enjoy!
