I had some iffy potatoes left in my cabinet so I decided to mash them before they went completely bad. I have always been told that the key to creamy mashed potatoes is to add cream cheese and I had some cream cheese so I tried it out. I then topped it with some cheddar cheese because I obviously have a cheese problem…
This is the spinach baked mac and cheese I made the other night. It tasted so good. I usually am not one to think vegetables add my flavor but spinach and cheese is a good combination in my book.
Tonight I made an attempt at a meat tomato sauce. I had a lot of hamburger and used Hunt’s diced tomatoes and Hunt’s sauce as the foundation with some onions and garlic. It seemed to take forever to cook but that is probably because I was really hungry. It turned out really well. I made a lot of extra so I will be eating it for a while.
This is the blanket I made over the weekend. It crocheted up really fast. The pattern and yarn are from Lion Brand called Spa Garden Ripple Afghan (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L20635.html). I used the suggested Lion Brand Thick & Quick yarn. It is really soft and really warm.
This is The Boo pattern from Mochimochi Land (http://mochimochiland.com/shop/boo-pattern/). It is a really quick knit and I made her in a night. I haven’t added the button that the pattern has yet and I am thinking of making another one trying out the other wing pattern. I am really bad at embroidering so my attempt at the teeth turned into a side quirky smile and will stay that way. I really like the loops for the feet and I currently have her hanging off a shelf above my bed.
Tonight I made for myself quite a meal. I have home made egg pasta topped with home made vodka sauce with breaded sautéed chicken. It was a good way to unwind for the day and even more fun to eat. With so much going on in the kitchen I didn’t pay as close to the chicken as I should have so it is a little tougher than I can usually make.
