Ok, round two! I tried my bestest to upload this blog entry yesterday, but it 'pears I confounded myself. No matter what I did I could not upload. Turns out (giggle!) that I, in a cleaning frenzy, knocked a wire loose which affected our internet connection. *sigh* no more cleaning for me, its dangerous!
I loved making this duotang clip element - should come in handy for lots of projects, no? Would love to see how you use it. You prolly notice that I have not added a drop shadow, nor bevel - you can add your own. However, tomorrow (yes, that would be wednesday) I will be posting this element again - with something added... got your curiousity up?
My sweetie brought me home FRESH FIGS! Believe it or not, they were grown locally. If you've never had a fresh fig before I will tell you they are very soft, cool, sweet and delicious, yet delicate. And oh so pretty to look at! Along with the figs, the farmer gave us some chinese apple pears which are crisp, sweet and refreshing.
I made cookies for Jeanne at our school. Last week when we had pot luck lunch at school, she lamented there were no cookies (tho some turned up later) and especially her favorites. After finding out her favorites were thankfully, easy to make, I threw some together on sunday night. I used my favorite Kraft recipe which does not REQUIRE flour, tho I add a scant 1/2 cup for a double batch. I also made them special by folding in a bag of HERSEY'S KISSABLES, little candy coated kisses. Lastly, I flattened the cookies with a flat bottomed drinking glass, dipped in sugar, to give the tops a sweet, glittery finish. You can find the recipe at the following link:

With cold weather closing in, its time to cuddle up to the crock pot - it can be your best friend! My freind Kristin CB pointed me to this fabulous website featuring Low Fat Crock Pot recipes... she says the chicken stew is great - but steer away from the ham potluck bake ( I think it was that one lol) Enjoy! (PS, do tell which ones work out for you!)
