Happy Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
It was a good day here. All the preparations were worthwhile. I loved that all the family members ate heartily and genuinely had a great day.

The centerpiece of the day was the turkey. Cockeyed turned me on to Martha Stewart’s Turkey 101 recipe. Delish!

Hope you had a great day! I’ll be resting with a new project tonight and a cup of tea.

A Quick Meal

It’s undeniably getting to be a busier time of year.
I offer you a yummy kid-friendly recipe for the season of parties or more importantly, gift knitting. 

You don’t even need to grocery shop for this one, only 3 easy ingredients!

Narraganset Chicken
Boneless chicken breasts
Ken’s Creamy Italian dressing
Pepperidge Farm Herbed Stuffing mix – readily available and keeps forever!

1. Marinate chicken (the longer the better, I do a full day)
2. Coat marinated chicken breasts in crushed stuffing mix
3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes.

Enjoy and go knit! 

Let me know how you like it!

Time Management

Or not!  For those of you joining me in the pre-holiday listmaking game, here’s a tip.

Zombie Farm. 

It serves three purposes.

1. Acts as timer for your tasks.  Crop ready in 30 minutes? Well that’s 30 minutes to clean dining room…you get it.

2. Task incentive.  Cross an item off the list, invade Old Mac Donald’s Farm as a reward. (Works for kids too!)

3. LastLy, Zombie Farm is a very effective procrastination tool. Ask me how I know…

I may be last to the game party, but what other games do you play?

PS. Don’t get me started on Angry Birds!  Love it but it’s a MAJOR addictive game.  Thanks ALOT Leslie!

I really was quite good.  It could have been worse. Much.  A convention center full of yarny goodness makes for lots of fun. Some fibery type souveniers stowed away in my bags. Yarns from Blue Moon Fiber Arts (BFL Sport … Continue reading

I got it in my head, after seeing this vest on my knitting buddy Cynthia, that I had to have it. NOW.  Berroco designed Ninebark Cowl knit with Lustra. It was in my queue since last winter when it appeared on … Continue reading
