cooking & sewing


see those 2 cans of condensed soup? apparently i can't read labels.

my recipe called for condensed cream of mushroom. i thought the soup looked kinda funny as i emptied the cream of chicken into the crockpot.

but, i didn't really think about it today until i was making my second batch, and the soup looked like it actually had mushrooms in it.


i'm using a recipe from one of my WW books, _slow cook it_. the recipe is on page 59. it's called "Double Mushroom-Smothered Pork Chops".

the version i made yesterday isn't exactly "double mushroom" since i used cream of chicken!

today's version should be spot on!

i just wanted to try something different for this week's meals. i also have some red potatoes roasting in the oven, and i need to chop up some celery.

yesterday was a sewing frenzy …


i bought the fabrics in january, with the intention of sewing them much sooner than yesterday.

however, they are done! these are the same pennants i've sewn before from this tutorial.

they are soon to be shipped to another state for a friend's event.

here's a couple of shots of the fabrics when i purchased them.

and here's what they look like (not the same fabric --- this is from another set i sewed awhile back) finished.

I love the bunting! I want to make some for the summer. I suppose I should learn how to use a sewing machine. Hmm, it's good to have goals.

Anyhow, I personally love cream of chicken soup, though no one else in my family does. More for me!
