Name that Barn Block

What are we going to call this NEW Barn Block?

Usually, my quilts are inspired by traditional blocks, so there is already a name to work with.
This block came out of no where.
I was just playing with colors to see if I could get the center to float.

Help me pick a name, and I will send you a set of Barn Block greeting cards, OK?

Shawarma with Raw Spice Bar

Everyone here is loving the Moroccan Ras El Hanout from Raw Spice Bar.
How about you?
Shop Raw Spice Bar now in right sidebar ---}

Last week we made Homemade Catsup. Today I will share a recipe for Shawarma:
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ras El Hanout
  • 2 Tablespoon lemon
  • cubed chicken or salmon
  • cubed cucumber
  • minced scallion
  • a little parsley
Blend everything together and let it chill for as long as you can stand it. I made it almost 30 min. before I had to try it.
extra cucumber for garnish
We served ours on tiny pita breads, tapas style. You know, if you had Ras El Hanout in your pantry, you could magic these up for impromptu parties. Turn your next TV marathon night into an event;)

Did you know Ras El Hanout is a special spice blend that includes rose hip, anise, and even some pumpkin pie type flavors? So, Maybe we should try it out on some squash;);) No doubt it would be fascinating up-do for Kitty Pearl's Pumpkin Butter!
