Today I finished the Schnibbles Winter White top--I'd like to pin and quilt it tomorrow. I wasn't sure about this line of fabric when I first started, but I think it's really softly pretty, don't you? It's Old Primrose Inn by Blackbird Designs.
Thank you all for your dinner suggestions! I surely could have made most of them given a big enough appetite and the ingredients needed, but because I was trying to cook using the ingredients I already had in the house, I had to eliminate several yummy possibilities and tinker with the recipe of the one I finally picked, Pam's suggestion of Salisbury steak--or at least that's what gave me the inspiration for what I ended up cooking. I didn't have any Lipton onion soup mix, so I mixed some dried minced onions and powdered beef bouillon into the ground beef. I made patties and covered them with a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup. Then I put them in the oven at 350 degrees to bake. While that was baking, I sauteed mushrooms and onions and topped the patties with those things and a little Parmesan cheese and let them bake all together a little longer. Yum!
And while I was checking out Pioneer Woman's meatball soup (definitely a meal for another day!), I came across a recipe for potatoes, so I made those to go with the ground beef dish, and I steamed some broccoli. All of it turned out to be just the thing for a chilly winter day!
Of course, for dessert, a cup of hot chocolate with one of Hubby's Valentine sugar cookies was perfect!
And see those little four-patch blocks? Yep, I took your advice about the leftover scraps too. I want to get some of the chocolate brown fabric from this line to set the four patches with, I think. Maybe an excursion to the quilt shop is in order for Sunday!
I hope you're having a fantastic weekend! Thanks for visiting.
