My 200th Post snuck up on me! I should have done a give-away or something. Oh well...300, maybe. :) I've been too busy sewing and cooking and homemaking and family-raising and not paying attention to post counts.
Today was A Major Kitchen Day. I spent $300 in groceries. Ouch! And that took a couple of hours just to organize and put away. And then, of course, I wanted to cook. A major grocery shopping trip always makes me want to bake and cook. So I made 4 dozen Orange-Cranberry Bran Muffins and put some away in the freezer. I roasted a chicken for dinner. I made 2 13x9 pans of Seven Layers of Sin for Casey's lunches, wrapped the bars individually and popped them in the freezer. Already for pulling out and popping in a paper bag. I also made a big pan of Rice Krispie treats because I had some cereal that had sat for a bit and was going to go stale. I made a huge rainbow pasta salad and another big Tropical Spinach Salad. I have my OutBack WannaBe Brown bread in the bread machine. After dinner I will put together some mini-Calzones for the freezer as well. Casey loves Hot Pockets and these are my more affordable alternative to those.
I also started on the my next sewing project, Vogue 8090 in a salmon quilted twill for the jacket and salmon denim for pants and skirt. The jacket has about 3 more hours left on it. I'm binding all the internal seams so it's taking awhile.
