It was all in my head…

3 Nov

I thought through at least 4 posts this month. Then I saw my blog and realized they weren’t there. Apparently the posts never made it from my brain to the computer.

Oh I remember why…the new blogger post editor won’t load correctly on my computer and I couldn’t figure out how to change back to the old editor. Now I’ve found what settings to change and I’m using the old editor and trying not to feel like everyone else has it better. Maybe they all think the new editor sucks too.

Here are a few of the things I imagined posting in the last month:

Finished Project!!!


I have wanted to make a bag like this one forever! It is done and I love it! I used this tutorial on Craftster here. It is pretty small though. You can get a more useful size (and easier to read) pattern from Mamma Byrd Tiny Tote Pattern

Happy First Birthday Cutie Pie!

Went camping in Osage Hills State Park (Bartlesville, Oklahoma) to celebrate having the DH home at last!!!
Hip Hip Hooray! He’s been gone 12 of the last 18 months and the kids and I are SO HAPPY to have him home.

p.s. Aunt Jeanie, I know I should have told you we were going to be so close to you, but we were going in the complete opposite direction until we changed plans very last minute because of rain.– Sorry 😦



Recipe: Spinach Feta Cheese Quiche:

**This is a recipe I have modified. The original came from “Making Great Cheese at Home” by Barbara Ciletti

Crust:

3/4 c lard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup water microwaved for 60 seconds so it is really hot

Mix until water is absorbed.

Add: 3 cups flour Blend until crumbly

add 1/3 cup milk and mix until smooth.
Roll out dough and line a springform pan with crust dough.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Filling:

Fry alot of bacon–like a good handful–8 strips? drain on paper towel. crumble up and put in a bowl with

5 Large Eggs
1/2 cup milk
3 cups or so chopped fresh spinach (the spinach in your fridge that you have to use today or it will be slimy kind)
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 cloves garlic, mashed
3/4 cup feta cheese (or do like me and put in the whole yummy package)
1/4 cup cream cheese cubed. (Next time I might try creaming it with a mixer first and then adding everything else to it.)
sprinkle a little black pepper over it
3 oz olive oil
1/2 cup pitted black olives

Pour the filling into the crust.
Bake 40 plus minutes until top center is slightly firm and doesn’t jiggle when you pull the pan out of the oven.

Magicked 4 Halloween Costumes together in less that 2 hours thanks to DH for driving 80 miles to get fake fur for the werewolf and then dashing off again to the dollar store for a few other things (like the whole witch’s costume–totally worth every penny of $1.25plus tax.)

    Tamale Pie looks murderously scary in that first picture. And your quiche sounds quite tasty, what with the bacon and lard. But, alas, I do not like cooked spinach except in dip. So I think I'll make a tasty tomato pie to console myself (with bacon of course). And lastly, I'm real glad that your labels are 'family, food, sewing'. Is there more to life, really?
