Polymer Clay Jewelry – Beaded Bracelet with Matching Bangle Bracelets

1 Pink and Purple Polymer Clay Beaded Bracelet custom order

Custom Made Bracelets – Handmade Purple Pink and White Glitter Bead Bracelet was specially made For my Sweet Sweet Sabryna.

Sabryna is my 7 year old Granddaughter. She recently complemented me on a red white and blue sparkly beaded bracelet that I was wearing for Memorial Day. She sweetly asked me, with those cute Betty Boop eyes, “if I could make here some sparkly bling jewelry in her Favorite colors”. She was quite excited about her bracelet she was having custom made. She lives downstairs from us and every time she would see Grandpa coming and going outside, she would inquire about Grandma Linda’s whereabouts, and was I working on her bracelet? She was delighted when I presented her with her Sparkly Set of Bracelets, since she was only expecting one beaded bracelet. It makes me happy to see her smile.

Sabryna is quite a budding artist herself. I am planning for us to have Craft Time scheduled once a week during the Summer, so that she and I can enjoy a few hours of Art time together regularly.

It’s BBQ Time – Delicious Green Chili Cheeseburger Recipe

Image

Green Chiles and Pepper Jack Cheese are a great way to spice up a burger. My husband loves when I make Chili Rellenos, but it is quite a bit of work, so I don’t make them as often as he would like. This easy recipe is a good way to satisfy a hungry man’s appetite, with a lot less work.

Ingredients needed for Green Chili Cheeseburger Recipe:

*Ground Beef Patties (seasoned as you like)

*Green Chiles

*Pepper Jack Cheese

*Hamburger Buns

*Hamburger Condiments

Green Chile Peppers are large, mild flavored peppers that often referred to as Anaheim Peppers. They were named ‘Anaheim’ Peppers when a farmer named Emilio Ortega brought these seeds to the Anaheim, California area in the early 1900’s.

We will need to remove the skin from our peppers. The easiest way to remove the skin from the peppers is by roasting the peppers in the oven.

Image

Pre-heat your oven to the high Broil setting. While your oven is heating wash and dry your peppers.

Image

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, then place your green chiles on the foil lined pan. The oils in the chiles will stain your pan if you don’t line it, I learned this the hard way.

Image

Place your chiles in your oven on an upper rack. Broil the chiles just until they are blackened, then turn them over and broil until they are fairly black on all sides. The chiles may pop a bit while they are cooking, this is alright, it will break the skin open and make them easier to peel. As an alternative you can blacken your chiles on your grill if you like, I just find it to be faster and easier to do in my oven.

Image

When your chiles are done blackening, remove them from the oven and let them cool. When chiles are cool to the touch, gently slide the tip of a sharp knife under the edge of the skin to get it started to peel if needed. Gently peel all of the skin off of your chiles.

Image

Your chiles should now look naked like this. Cut just the stem end off of the chiles making sure to leave the tasty seeds inside of your chiles. If your chili peppers are large like mine, you may want to cut them in half so that they don’t hang off of the edge of your burgers.

Season your hamburgers to your liking. I like to use a little salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, and a little ground cayenne pepper on my burgers.

Image

Cook you hamburgers on a hot barbecue grill until they are just about done to your liking. Place your chiles on your hamburgers, then lay a slice of pepper jack cheese over the top of your green chiles. Close the lid of the barbecue grill for a minute or two until the cheese is meted over the chiles.

Dress your Pepper Jack Green Chili Cheeseburger with your condiments of choice. Keep it simple so you don’t drown out the delicious chili and cheese flavors.

I Love Where I Live – Huntington Beach Rocks!

How many people can actually say they LOVE where they live? I grew up just 30 minutes away from here in Long Beach, but ever since I was a teenager I knew that Huntington Beach was The Place for me. Surf, sun, sand, surfer boys, skater boys, the delicious sweet smell of cocoa butter, all night bonfire beach parties at the cliffs…this was heaven to me.

South Side of HB PierSouth Side of Huntington Beach Pier. I never actually thought I would live just a few blocks from the Huntington Beach pier. I am one lucky lady!

world famous cheese stripsWe love to hop on our bicycles and cruise down to Dwight’s Beach Concession for a favorite snack “Cheese Strips”. It’s a bit of nostalgia for me, since I have been coming here for strips ever since I was a teen.

Charlie cheese strips sauceCheese Strips are not to be confused with nachos. Strips are freshly made corn chips that are covered in mounds of grated cheese (not melted), then they are doused in Dwight’s famous sauce. Dwight’s famous sauce is a sweet, mildly tangy tomato sauce that is incredibly delicious. As locals,we know strips are best with an extra sauce. You can also purchase the sauce to go in quarts or gallons.

Charlie and Gidget my BicycleAfter pigging out, we decided to to take a nice bike ride down the boardwalk to the Newport Beach Jetty and back, about 6 miles round trip. That might make a small dent in the strips, Ha!
