Last night I spent the evening snipping and ironing a "Black Knight" t-shirt for spirit day at school today. We got up extra early this morning so there’d be time to apply black makeup and hairspray- it took quite awhile to get it all done but I think he was happy with the result despite the ho-hum look on his face. The ring is his latest art metals project which involved cutting out the shapes with a jeweler’s saw and soldering the pieces together. The finished ring was then polished. His outfit will be completed with a plastic crusader sword and a borrowed helmet.
In between the snipping and the ironing I made the slightly delayed taco salads for dinner. There’s ground pork cooked with onions, salt, cumin, chili powder, granulated garlic and granulated onion. I warmed the tortilla chips then topped them with the meat, refried beans, lettuce, tomato, avocado, cheddar cheese, green onions and a homemade version of ranch dressing. It was very quick and easy, just what I needed on such a busy knight, err night.
