The Hippodrome Theatre - yes sir - in Utica NY. Did I say we had quite the theater district. When I first say hippodrome I thought - wow - for horse races? But of course, I knew better. Located on Lafayette Street.
The Hippodrome Theatre, Utica, New York, 1910
Just above the entrance is the word "Vaudeville." The postcard sent from Utica to a C. Troast in the Transvaal.

1 (15oz) can black beans 1 ranch seasoning packet 1 egg, beaten 1/2 onion, diced 2 jalapenos, diced 1/2 cup oats 2 tbsp chili powder 2 tbsp paprika seasoning 1 tbsp garlic powder 1 tbsp ground cumin 3 tbsp sriracha sauce - type of hot sauce - a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt 3 tbsp water 1 clove garlic, minced 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet. Mash black beans in a bowl; add onion, garlic, jalapenos, & bell pepper. Mix. Set aside. Whisk water, sriracha sauce, ranch packet, chili powder, cumin, paprika, & garlic powder together in a separate small bowl. Mix oats & egg into the black bean mixture. Combine with the seasoning mixture. Spoon ‘burger-sized’ mounds of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, about a 3/4-inch thickness per mound. Shape into burgers. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked in the center and crisp in the outside, about 10 minutes on each side. Enjoy bunless or you can use lettuce leaves for a Paleo “bun.” My favorite buns are the Ezekiel bread brand!
Finally, found a large box to construct a light box (again) but I think this one is a tad small also.
Been working new sweater patterns - soaker pants, a shawl collared sweater and a one piece side to side that really got me doing a lot of ripping out and knitting. Of course, I will try it again but maybe in a solid color this time.
Love how these to go together and didn't even plan it.
Next project - a pair of wool soaker pants with a different gusseted crotch.
It is funny in the craft show world. You can carry a product for a year with only selling
one or two and then you hit that one special show and you sell a dozen in an afternoon.
The Clinton Show was one of those shows. Sold out of my "body buddies" so had to get
to work making more. Over the years there have been so many people making these
but I think have come upon the perfect blend of fabric, sewing and filling.
I use flannel because of it's coziness.
I sew three chambers in them because it lies better around your neck.
I only use flax seeds because they have better heating properties but mostly because I love the way they smell when warmed AND they don't get a nasty food smell if over heated.
Tonight - I cut out 2 dozen buddies and started the sewing while catching up on some Hart of Dixie and Parenthood. That used up my stash of flannel. Gee, how sad cause now I'll have to go buy some more, said a sewer never.
Crockpot Steel Cut Oats - or how I get to work on time.
I love hot cooked cereal for breakfast. Hey I love cereal, period, any time of the day. But I don't like making breakfast in the morning, even a cup of coffee is a chore. So, we (the master cook) and I came up with this way of making sure I have my cereal.
All four of my children were home schooled to various degrees and all four went to college. Two have bachelors, while the other two are working on associates. I so think it would be nice to retire early and school my grandchild but I know that isn't an option. In a country were two parents sometimes have to work due to circumstances, homeschooling becomes difficult. Yet the facts are in and show that most home educated children are far ahead of their public schooled peers.
All of my children have a respect for adults, knew the importance of communication and all have good work ethics. Because they were schooled at home - probably not BUT I do know they are better people than if I would have sent them to our local central school. They know how to think critically, aren't followers, and my list can go on and on.
As a believer in Christ and what the Bible says, I don't buy into the notion that our children should be educated by the government (in my eyes Egypt) but by their parents and family.
