I finished a couple of little projects to give to my friends Dorie and James who are expecting next month.
First a Socktopus, which has been road tested by Big I:
Also, a little nursing bracelet for Dorie to use. It helps keep track of which side to start on each time you sit down to feed the little one.
I've made a couple of good vegetarian recipes lately, just in time for the second half of Lent.
Check out how pretty the Butternut Squash and White Bean Soup is.
I chopped the spinach into smaller pieces than called for (Craig didn't like long ribbons) and I added a can of vegetable broth as part of the water. Sometimes Real Simple's recipes are too simple and there's not enough flavor, so the broth helps. For those in veggie-adverse households, there's just no way to slide this one in unnoticed.
(And why yes, those are yet more Sweet Potato Biscuits. I like them, okay?!)
Also, I made some excellent Fish Tacos last night. I bought the tomatillo salsa to save on time. I'd like to make the salsa myself next time, though.
We got two big convertable car seats for Big I the other day. (Thank you Woot!) I think he was more interested in the box.
Wonder where he gets it from? This is me circa March 1981 (just about the same or a bit older than his age now).
Notice the box in the background?
