Also, I'm trying to incorporate NEW recipes each wk. It's another 'addiction' I have besides all the stitchy/sewing ones. LOL There are only about a thousand I want to try, so I bought myself a cute little folder (w/Beagle puppies on it) to store the freebie ones I run off of the internet. I also bought a BIG cheapie noteook, along w/some dividers, to hold them in after we see if we like that particular recipe. I do have a recipe box and an old smaller notebook that holds all of my recipes I've had for yrs, but this is just for the new ones. Before, I just stuffed the internet ones in folders and had to dig through each one looking for something new to try OR spent lots of time rummaging through all my bazillion cookbooks, so hopefully this will save me time in the long run.
When planning our meals for this wk. I grabbed one of my cookbooks(a Gooseberry Patch, for instance), got out a little notepad, wrote down the pg. number and beside it, the name of the recipe I'd like to try. Any ingredients I didn't have was written down on a separate grocery list. Then I went through my coupons to match up ingredients that needed to be bought. Waa-la!! it's been a hit so far!!
So as not to bore you w/all that~here's a few things I made last wk. Can't believe no one even tried to guess what they were. I even gave you all a HINT!!
This is called a 10-min. tablerunner, from that kit I won. Actually, I think they should name it 30-min. tablerunner, cuz it took me a bit longer than 10 MINS!!! :))) but I think the colors are gorgeous!
Very easy to make, but not sure how anyone could make it in 10 mins. LOL It took me awhile to get those seams just right.I had received one of these tissue covers in a RAK(you can read about on my last post) and had always wanted to make some myself. Talk about FAST and EASY!! I started out w/making two of them, then they multiplied.......and I ended up w/5, but gave a few away, so now back to two again. ha
I'm sure I'll be making plenty more of them in the future. I need to make one for myself too!
Well, thanks for stopping by~ I need to go start that new recipe for tonite's dinner(Enchilada Casserole and Taco Soup), so hope to see ya back on here again soon!
