22  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Wontonless Wonton Soup Recipe on: May 19, 2012 01:10:41 PM
I got the broth tasting just like wonton soup, but didn't have any wrappers in the house, so it's wontonless! lol

today I made:

I loosely based this off an online recipe just using what I had
Bring to boil:
10 cups chicken or veggie broth
1 1/2 tsp rice wine vinegar
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 TBsp minced garlic
Add most of a chopped medium spring onion
Add snap peas to taste
Let boil another 5ish minutes
Rip up and add spinach to taste and toss in, stir and take off burner. Let rest for 2 minutes, then serve!



We have a local farm you can buy a harvest box from on fridays, I think it is their overstock of vegetables, but they are beautiful and delish and organic! The ladies up here take turns driving to the farm and then delivering fresh veggies to your door, got my first box yesterday, that is where I got the fresh veggies from! :

23  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / stuffed mini bell peppers on: April 19, 2012 04:33:20 PM


I was just invited to Bunco at a friend's house and had to whip up a snack to bring. Smiley Mini bell peppers, rinsed and tops chopped off, and then I mixed low sodium turkey bacon in a bowl with laughing cow wedges and just a squirt of relish. I haven't got to try them yet, but hubby says they are delicious!
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Butterfly Bow Child's Hat on: January 14, 2012 05:12:11 PM
I love this pattern, and when I need to make a hat for Lily in a hurry its usually my go to. Today I told her its time to pick out a new pattern, but she picked this hat again, so I made it again. It works up for me in under an hour, for a fast crocheter probably half that time.
Its super simple, and Lily has had a few hats in this pattern, but since she has grown so much this year, I did row 6 5x instead of 3x like the pattern calls for. Lily is 4, but about the size of a 6/7, so I was thinking her head might be bigger than the average 4 y/o as well. I probably could've gotten away with doing row 6 4x though.





the yarn is Hobby Lobby brand, I love their acrylic yarn. I find it to be one of the few really affordable acrylics that are also super soft.
