I’ve tried my hand at water color for the last few days. One of my first favorite is as follows…
I thought it turned out pretty well, although as a friend suggested, I should have covered the page in water so that my colors would blend well together. Also, I learned that it’s best to sketch my piece and do the water color, then go back with a pen. My ink blurred just a bit… 😀 I learned my lesson with the next few pieces.
I just finished these last ones, and I can’t help but say that I am very proud of myself. I had to show my whole family, and now I am posting them, so… yeah.
My question for You: What are your favorite color combinations and why?
Unfortunately, I did not take pictures throughout the process, but I believe it is rather explanatory.
My version of this sandwich is non-dairy, but of course, it can be made the exact same way with dairy if you so wish.
Let us move on with the recipe!!!
Vegan cream cheese
Fresh or dried basil (fresh is the best)
Bread of your choice. I used a whole wheat, multigrain bread
Alright, so step número uno is: lay out two slices of bread (to make one sandwich). Layer one side with cream cheese and the other with mayo. The amount of both is dependent on your preferences.
Next, I layer one side with the dried dill, and the other with basil, fresh or dried. In my opinion, fresh is spectacularly, amazingly, phenomenally scrumptious. But, of course, this is only my opinion.
Now you will cut your cucumber slices. For this, I usually cut my cucumber by the length of the bread so that when I lay it on, it reaches both top and bottom of the bread. (Wish I had taken pictures!) I layer it pretty thick, cutting the cucumber into thinner slices. This step is due to your preference of how much cucumber you would like.
Then you put both pieces of bread together and for an aesthetically pleasing sandwich, I cut the crust off and cut the sandwich into six little tea-sized sandwiches.
This recipe is rather simple, but very delicious!!!
My question for You: Do you prefer eating a whole sandwich, or one cut into small squares as above?
If you’re like me, this holiday is almost pointless… I am only a High School student who had vowed not to be in a relationship until she is eighteen or older. Wow.
But you know, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be just about the couples. It can be about families, friends, maybe even your pets.
As this day has been approaching I have been feeling rather gloomy, because I would like some appreciation from someone other than my family and my girl friends, but I also know that would distract me from my true purpose, especially at my age.
I feel as if the internet and advertisement campaigns make a huge deal about this day, and don’t get me wrong, I think Valentine’s Day is nice, and I don’t criticize couples who take advantage of it. But what about all of the young girls that are feeling left out, and then go and do something stupid because they weren’t a part of all of this?
Today, my Valentine’s is Jesus.
I am going to honor Him, love Him, respect Him, and trust Him with all my heart, because He is the one who is truly watching out for me.
This post may seem rather open ended, but I will leave it at that.
God bless, and here’s a rose for each of you. 🙂 🌹
My question for You: Do you have any special plans for today?
