My latest square: Capricorn! Do you guys think it needs a background of some kind?

And just for fun, my current stitching view:

Love that coin purse and the pineapple chutney sounds soooo good!!

I'm glad you like your package rantyhippie. I was excited to involve my husband in a project.

Husband is proud of our project and told me to post some pre-send pics, lol. I'm going to try to use his skills more often  Cheesy

I made 10 towels and dyed the tie-dyed side. Husband was a little restricted in what he could do because I told him the holder couldn't weigh a thousand pounds! He used materials found in his garage.

I received from rantyhippie today!!

An almost group shot:

I got an awesome crocheted market bag, a plastic reusable bag, a ridiculously frugal cookbook, and a crochet washcloth. It's all so useful!

She also sent a towel with a crocheted holder that looks awesome in my new stove:

And it all came with this Spider-Man card that my kiddo enjoyed:

Thank you rantyhippie! This was a great swap. I hope you get your package soon!

This has been on my "Things to make" board forever!


Finally got around to making my version for my father-in-law's 60th birthday. His name is DeWitt, but everyone calls him "Witt," hence the intentional misspelling on my version.

I see more wooden signs in my future.  Cheesy

35  Spaghetti Squash Alfredo in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Abbeeroad on: August 18, 2014 08:54:11 AM
I've been wanting to try spaghetti squash for a long time now. I knew that the only way I could get anyone else in my family to eat it, however, was if I smothered it in cheese. So when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to give it a shot.

1 medium-sized spaghetti squash
1 Tablespoon butter
3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
2 Tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon cream cheese
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus 2 Tablespoons extra for topping
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Crushed red pepper flakes and fresh parsley, for optional garnish

I roasted the squash the night before I baked it at 350 degrees F for about an hour. Unfortunately, the next day I realized I did not save my squash skins for re-baking (and lovely presentation), so I used a 9x9 baking dish instead. Other than that I pretty much followed the instructions in the link above.

My squash was also a little over roasted I think and I lost some of the spaghetti-like definition of the squash when I scraped it out of the skin. That aside, it came out amazingly delicious. Even my husband ate it (but not the kiddo).

It looks a bit blob-y in this pic:

But here's the evidence of deliciousness:

The crushed red pepper was an excellent addition. I'm hoping we can make spaghetti squash part of our regular dinner rotation. Maybe I'll even try a recipe with less cheese next time!

My two homes! Upstate NY to Jersey. NJ came out a bit patriotic. Wonder if I'm prouder to be here than I realize?

Hm. It does look like it had a rough trip! I should have wrapped it nice like yours, dharma.

Here's a pic from before I sent:

Hopefully it can get back to looking like that for you! Thanks so much for a great swap ladies!
