Hi all and Happy Sunday! It is another true fall day here in the plains. Cool, drab, and gray, but at least no rain. The best thing about this week is not only the upcoming holiday(Thanksgiving) but only 2 days of school...woohooo!Here is the week in review:

Monday: Puerto Rican rice and habichuelas for dinner. I was in heaven. I even had enough to take to school for lunch the next day. Sabrosisimo!!!!

Saturday:I finished this scarf that I saw on Libby's blog and fell in love with stitch and yarn. She clued me in to where I could find both!!

I still love it. I added fringe and hope to debut it next week at school LOL.

Last night I was also inspired to try out a new recipe that has tweaked my curiosity. Have you ever seen those pumpkin rolls with cream cheese filling? Well, Walmart has them for $3.50 a piece. I found the recipe on the back of a can of Libby's pumpkin can.


It taste as good as it looks and pretty simple too. Maybe 20 min of prep?

Last but not least, I am still working on my Crochet by Numbers afghan for my in-laws. I have frogged it twice, because it has to be perfect. I am about a third of the way done, soon I'll have a pic of progress.

I am thankful for my blogging buddies and have Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you are where you want to be and who you want to be with on turkey day. I will be with my kids.....ahhhhhh!

The wedding afghan....Brett and Nicole 12/12/09

Well here it is, the wedding afgahn for my nephew and his bride-to-be. I hope its something they can use and enjoy. It fits a twin size bed, so it could be thrown over the foot of a bed or a rocker.

A beautifun scarf9gotta find out the pattern!!), the leftover yarn(yippee!), a Crochet World mag. from 1990(so cooool), a chocolate bar, a crocheted bookmark and 2 more project books from Red Heart. Thanks suellen!
