I've been waiting for someone to do a swap with this kind of theme. The perfect theme for me and my avocados! Besides all the avo cookbooks and avo doo-dads I have in my collection, I also have several avocado fabrics that have been calling out to me every time I dig into my fabric stash......
How's this for a FIESTA apron??? I made it entirely from things I already had on hand.
I'm really pleased with the way it turned out! This just might be in my top 10 favorite aprons that I've created! I embellished a kitchen towel to match.(did you know you can make ruffles out of grosgrain ribbon? Look how cute it looks)
The Fiesta swap package is also to include a fiesta-themed item of my choosing and at least one fiesta-themed recipe......WELL, what's more fiesta-ish than a big bowl of guacamole? Of course I'm sending along a big pile of avocados and an avo slicer.
Our family has so many much-loved Mexican food recipes that I couldn't choose just one, so I made up a mini cookbook with 25 of our favorites.
These are a few I included:
TEX-MEX EGG ROLLS
BROWN SUGAR CINNAMON ICE CREAM
CHICKEN SOUR CREAM ENCHILADAS
MARINATED FLANK STEAK WITH LIME-CHIPOTLE GLAZE
MEXICAN TURKEY MEATLOAF
BLACK BEAN AND SALSA SOUP
This package will be on its way on Monday to my partner in Texas...I sure hope she likes avocados!
I lOVE THIS SWAP! and I haven't even received my package yet!!
Thank you Val from Yarni Gras for hosting such a great theme!
