Salt dough ornaments

4 Jan



Another shout out to one of my favorite craft blogs, thecheesethief.blogspot.com . In November, she posted a tutorial for a fun, cheap, and relatively easy craft: http://www.thecheesethief.com/2011_11_01_archive.html

Salt dough ornaments! So my friends Nancy and Kendra decided to try this out with me. These are just three of the ones I did. Some of my best ones were given away for Christmas, and I didn’t think to take a picture of them at the time.  Maybe if Alysha sees this, I can convince her to take a picture of hers and send it to me!

Anyway, I like how they turned out, and I had a fun afternoon in December crafting with my friends!  I would have posted pictures sooner, but I didn’t want the recipients of my little handmade gifts seeing them and knowing what they looked like ahead of time.


Ps… consider this my post for 1/4. I don’t know why the date stamp on wordpress keeps messing this up, but I swear its 11:15 pm on Jan 4th my time. 🙂

pps… if you’re just joining my blog, there is a very logical reason for the word pancakes being stamped on a bunny face… that is.. i have a bunny named Pancakes.

ppps… that first one says “peace on earth.”  It got a little scrunched.


Healthy New Years Meal (a day late)

2 Jan

So yesterday the hubby and I had this delicious and healthy meal planned for our New Years dinner… and then we both felt too lazy to go grocery shopping so we postponed to today!

Anyway, pictured below is Chicken Rollatinis (recipe from skinnytaste.com, http://www.skinnytaste.com/2011/04/chicken-rollatini-with-spinach-alla.html). The recipe turned out absolutely delicious, as does everything we have ever made from this website. Kudos, Gina!

We did simple roasted broccoli and cauliflower, which we made by drizzling olive oil over it, and seasoning it with oregano and garlic pepper seasoning, and then roasting on a cookie sheet in the oven.

And finally, Jonathan had made whole wheat onion rolls, so today he sliced them into toast points and crisped them up in the oven.

Weight Watchers wise, this plate is 10 pts, and it was super filling and fabulous!
