Weekend Cooking and Crochet

I roasted a chicken and used the carcass to make some home made broth for the freezer. I used some of the broth to use up my Napa cabbage and made a small soup out of that! So tasty! I had some fresh dill I didn’t want to go to waste so made dill crackers!

On the crafty side I am using up yarn stash to make a cozy winter warm blanket with this colorful scrapghan! Nothing goes to waste food or yarn wise! tee hee!

Have a great week friends!

Weekend Cooking…

This morning I made a cucumber spinach salad, it is so tasty. For my breakfast I made a spinach pesto omelette for the first time. I read up on how to make them so next time mine won’t come out so brown! I wanted it to be golden. Practice makes perfect!

I completed this cute puzzle too that was loaned to me! In the crock pot was a cabbage/spinach soup for this weeks dinners! I have chocolate mint plant so I made chocolate chip mint cookies. Next time I will infuse more of the mint so it is more vivid in the flavor!

Have a great week friends!

Weekend Cooking Simple Style

Friday I came home and made a simple hamburger. Saturday I slow cooked a whole chicken in the crock pot, which yields yummy meals for me and my fur kid Gizmo. It also provided a nice small batch of chicken soup! Sunday I made sausage and egg sandwiches. My rose provided some nice blooms and I finished my Debbie Macomber novel!

Vacation Is Over, Got A Lot Done!

My extended vacation is over and it is back to work tomorrow. I made this vacation a very productive one! I painted my hallway, then went through my whole house and got rid of a bunch of stuff for goodwill! I made my limoncello, finished crocheting the minion for someone special. Today I made rice and home made Mac and cheese for the freezer and for this weeks meals!

It feels so good to get my house in order! It feels so much better! Each vacation another project will get done around here!

Wednesday Smiles….

I came home and put my spiral ham in my roaster. I put the leftover bone that still has a lot of meat on it in the freezer to use to flavor soup! Garfield is this weeks bus pet to bring smiles to people!

Crock Pot Chicken

I have never cooked a whole chicken in my crock pot and wanted to try it! My house smells so good! It has about another hour to go and I will check the temperature with the thermometer.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend friends!
