Last night, Huck and I decided to go out and support our local small businesses for small business Saturday. We started at Rancho Chico for dinner. First off, I would like to say, there is no good Mexican food in South Florida. Cuban food, yes. Mexican food, no! Rancho Chico has good Burritos, though.
Huck ordered a Burrito AKA the worlds largest Burrito.
I know it is hard to see, but this whole plate is the burrito. The beans and rice where piled on the side of it.
I ordered the tamale and taco. I ate the tamale, but was to full for the taco.
Next time, we are just going to split the Burrito.
After dinner, we stopped by Tequesta Brewing Company. Of course, we had to stop by and support our local bar!
Today, I did a few craft projects.
The first one on my list started with this dingy white sweater. I’m in love with ReFashionista. She does some amazing things with the ugliest outfits. One of her Refashions involved dyeing an old sweater.
I mixed half a packet of dye in a cup with very hot water. I filled the sink up 1/3 of the way with very hot water. I wet my sweater with hot water and add, un-crumpled, to the dye. Using kitchen thongs, I stirred and moved the sweater in the water for 5 minutes (The time depends on the fabric and how dark you want the item.) I rinsed the sweater, in hot water, and gradually to colder water as I rinsed, until the water runs clear. I hand washed the sweater in the sink and placed in the drier. (I followed the directions on the box, kind of.)
This picture doesn’t look great, but the sweater came out perfect. I now have a “new” sweater for $1.20. (As I was taking this picture, I remember, I already have a green sweater. Oh well!)
My sweater was practices for my bigger project. I have a set of white sheets I would like to dye blue. I found a few blogs where people were successfully. I plan to throw them away anyways, so why not? I’ll let you know how it goes.
Tonight, is also, the last night of Thanksgiving leftovers.

I hope everyone had a great Sunday, too.
This morning, we laced up our shoes, and went for a run. We covered 1.8 miles. My plan is to get up in the morning and do it again! It feels so good!
