I’m early!! And there have been very few time this year when I am not just squeezing in a post at the very end of the month.
First my Crafty Me pin. I loved this JOY TO THE WORLD banner. It’s almost finished…just need to ‘weave’ a red ribbon across the top of each letter piece and it’s ready to hang on the wall. Really wishing I had a fireplace mantel, but alas, no fireplace. Just printed the lettering out on card stock from MOM AND THE BLONDES blog. Used a spray adhesive to affix them to squares of burlap (this has festive sprinkles of gold glitter throughout, but not showing up in the photos).
The Foody Me pin is absolutely the perfect solution for lunch or dinner on a chilly day. Not that we’ve had any yet, but my family will tell you that I’m ready for soup any day. It’s a kielbasa, spinach, and white bean concoction that is so yummy. Even better as leftovers. This is definitely going into my favorites ! Could have something to do with the generous amount of butter I browned the sausage slices in.
The recipe is from MY SIDE OF LIFE.
I actually added a generous sprinkling
of grated parmesan cheese before serving.
This adorable microwavable, padded bowl cozy
is one of my purchases at last weekend’s Holiday Market.
And if you’ve ever burned your hands taking a hot bowl of leftovers
out of the microwave, you’ll understand what a fabulous find this is !
For those of you who would appreciated the directions
on how to sew your own, here it is.
