Experimenting and Stitching!

 Our big trip to the Outback is finally going to happen! After cancelling our plans twice last year everything is now booked and we'll soon be off. One of my cooking options in the camper is an electric frypan. I thought I'd experiment and try to make zucchini slice in the muffin tins. They've come out really well, so zucchini slice will be added to our camping menu! I thought it would be best to have a tryout at home prior to the trip.
On the stitching front, I've finished blocks seven, eight and nine of Tis The Season and last night got a fair bit of block ten done. Only two more to go. I've also been working on some secret stitching but you can't see that until later.
A package arrived today. It turned out to be the latest Spy Kids movie dvd. But I had no idea who it came from. After some investigating, it turned out to be Anorina from Samelia's Mum. Anorina had a giveaway a little while ago and the winner never contacted her. A redraw was done and my number came out. As Anorina already had my address, she thought she would surprise me. The boys will be very excited when they get home from school to see it. I actually borrowed the dvd from the library last week for them! Thank you Anorina. You certainly did surprise me!

I didn't know there was another spy kids movie. We watched the first couple over and over and over when Seth was little.

Hi Christine, did you put the muffin tray in the fry pan? Did you use a rack or use any water?
