The past couple of days I have been doing some crocheting. One was going to be a Christmas present, but I changed my mind after it didn't come out too good (for you, Laura). I am going to give it to her anyway just for her to have. It's a cover for a Nook. I don't even know if it will fit since I don't have my own to measure with.
I also made an infinity scarf. I've been wearing it around all day since I finished it. I think I will add a couple of more rows to make it wider. I got it twisted up along the way when I made it. When I make another one I am going to just go back and forth and connect it at the end so it isn't twisted. I have to wrap it 3 times around to fit on me. I would make it a bit shorter too. I found the pattern here after searching on Pinterest.
Speaking of Laura, we got to hang out for a bit today. We were going to try this place downtown called The Soup that I have been wanting to try forever. Well, I waited too long, because once we got there it was closed for business! So, we walked down the street to Jimmy John's. Always a crowd pleaser.
I also made some butterscotch oatmeal cookies. I found a chocolate oatmeal cookie recipe in my Betty Crocker Cookie Cookbook. They came out really weird. They are really thin and once they cool a little they are very crunchy. At least they still taste pretty good.
We also tried a place called Cherry Berry. It has tons of different frozen yogurts and toppings. I had chocolicious and chocolate mint with crushed graham cracker on top. That is definitely a place I can see myself going a LOT! Good thing you are charged by the weight or I may have super filled my cup up. This way I can restrain myself a bit.
When I got home I was hungry...again. I made some rice with vegetable broth. I ate about two cups. I know this, because I used the measuring cup to scoop it out.
|Two cups of rice. Yum!|
I think the problem was that the recipe I used was for chocolate oatmeal cookies, so you just add some cocoa powder to the recipe. I thought I was using a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe. Oh well. At least that will keep me from eating them all.
I am only up to season two of my I Love Lucy marathon. I couldn't believe how many show were in the first season. There were six discs! Kevin asked me if I was sick of watching it yet. I said, "Kevin, I Love Lucy!" Duh!!
