Etsy Sale, Juicy Lucy Burgers and Lots of Hearts

Hi there everyone. Hope you are having a good week. Our week is full of Doctor appointments...Uge. I had blood tests today. JP has his tomorrow and then on Friday he has two appointments at the Hospital. The Neurologist and the Urologist....hope things go well and the Doctors can figure out his problem.

So in the picture below is a Blue Apron meal from last week. "Juicy Lucy Burgers with Frizzled Onions and Romaine-Walnut Salad" Oh my, was this a delicious hamburger. Every bite was juicier then the next....I needed a few napkins for this one. It was well worth the wait to eat....we both are looking forward to the next time I make this, no other hamburger will ever be as good as this one.

What made this juicy, I think, was that the cheese was sealed within the burgers and then refrigerated for 10 minutes...actually I am not sure if that was the reason.....but it sure made a difference. The burger also had a sauce which was so good. Mayo and crushed garlic mixed good. Then topped with frizzled onions and romaine lettuce. The frizzled onions were drenched in flour and fried till brown and crunchy. Definitely a 5 star burger.
So this past week I got an Etsy sale....that always makes my day. I do the Etsy tap dance for about 10 minutes then start thinking about, "what will I put in my Etsy store next." So as you can see, in this next picture are a bunch of hearts I punched out and will sell in my Etsy store. 60 hearts for $3.50 + shipping. These little hearts are always handy to have, good for cards, scrapbooking or just tape to windows and doors.
OR, make a few book marks like the picture below. I made 3 of these little book marks and added them to my Etsy store. 3 book marks for $2.55 + shipping. I don't know about you....but sometimes I just need a book mark instead of a piece of paper to mark my place. GOSH.....that almost sounds antique-ish. What with the Kindles and I-pads and phones and all. I have neither, so I am still reading from books.
I made this card last year, but never got it into my Etsy store....there will be 3 of these cards for $5.50 + shipping.
Here's another 3 cards for $5.50 + shipping. I did make a few new cards, but have not taken pictures of them yet. I am in the process of making a few more cards, so maybe I will add them to my Etsy store then show them in my next post.

I may not get downstairs tonight to make some cards. In between making cards I have been reorganizing my work station.....things sure do get messy. I tend to not put things back where I find them, then when I look for that's not there. Geez.....
Well, I guess it is time to close this post and get some dishes done. Tonight's menu is some soup from Blue Apron. "Chicken & Udon Noodle Soup with Napa Cabbage & Dried Lime." This was very good....a keeper for a quick soup. I should give you the recipe.
Well, you have a good evening and great day tomorrow. Keep looking up....better days are coming. Cheers ~ Louise

Your burger sounds delicious. Who would have thought to add the cheese in the middle! Hope JP gets a good report and is okay. So happy you had a sale and hope many more will be coming. Your bookmarks are so cute. I have a Kindle and still go to the library. I just can't give up my books.
