To Do Tuesday – October 17

Welcome to To Do Tuesday – October 17


Christine at Stitch ALL The Things hosts To Do Tuesday.  TDT is a great weekly motivator to finish projects and (for me) to keep my To Do List manageable.

My list from October 10:

1.  Leggings & Shirts for Harley
2.  Dinner for Eight

We had some semi-nice weather this weekend, and we took the doors off the house to get them painted.  I am absolutely thrilled with the final result of our house!  I love the vibrant colors, and I am ecstatic to have this project finished!


1.  Leggings & Shirts for Harley

Now that the rush of pattern testing and Dinner for Eight is over with, I have time to get these sewn.  They are top priority this week!

2.  Dinner for Eight – Moroccan Style

Instead of cooking dinner ourselves this time, Todd and I decided to hire one of our local catering companies, Merlyn’s Catering.  Last year, we purchased groceries to make the meal twice (practice once), and we spent almost a full two days cooking.  We decided that the cost of groceries and our time was worth hiring a caterer, and boy howdy, was it!  The food was amazing, and Merlyn converted several of us “bad experience” lamb haters to lamb eaters!  Believe it or not, NONE of us took a single picture the whole evening, so I don’t have any to share.  However, I will share our menu.

  • Appetizer of  Seasoned Fava Bean Puree with Herbs and Flat Bread
  • Sweet Lettuce Salad with Shaved Red Onion, Zucchini, and Blood Orange
  • Khubz served with all courses
  • Lamb Tangine with Quince, Prunes and Almonds
  • Couscous
  • Keneffa – light pastry layered with Moroccan pastry cream
  • Mint Tea

If you ever have the opportunity to try authentic Moroccan food, DO IT!  It is absolutely amazing!
