It does look a bit sack like on the hangar but is fine on. It is loose as I want to wear it as a pinafore over a long sleeved top on cooler days and on hot days I can not do with clingy clothes. I may wear it with a belt at times to give it a little shape.
I will be making this up again and I am seriously thinking of buying the Sew Over It Ultimate shift dress pattern for a slightly different shape and construction method.
I made a quick tomato and lentil soup for lunch yesterday, I read a blog post from Joy at The Frugal Factor and that set me off.
I sent a text off to W, saying that there would be a spicy soup on offer for lunch. He responded with glee and within 45 minutes we were eating this glorious soup, I had baked a loaf of seeded bread so he had some of that as well.
We just had soup and boy it was good, I didn't follow a recipe I used a tin of tomatoes about a cup of red lentils, an onion, 2 sticks of celery, 2 carrots a 2" bit of fresh ginger and 3 cloves of garlic. Spices were 1 tsp each cumin, coriander, turmeric and the last shake from a jar of cajun seasoning. Homemade veg stock and just let it simmer away till the lentils were soft and there was just a little crunch in the carrots and celery. I was a tad generous with the spices so added a little coconut cream to calm it down slightly.
It was so good that I had made a start before I thought to take a photo, there was just a little left in the pot which I will use in something.
We didn't have the chilli after all that spice, I did jacket potatoes with grated cheese and home made coleslaw, lush.
We did have a pudding of sorts, I have recently found the Green Gourmet Giraffe blog and made her Banana and Coconut cake. It is a vegan recipe and is utterly delicious but next time I will add more coconut. We had a slice each of that while slightly warm, it was moist but not too gooey and very light. I made 2 and cooked the potatoes on the top shelf, they needed another 15 minutes with the heat cranked up to make them wonderfully crisp.
Now I have made myself hungry, the toaster calls.
