Zucchini Alfredo

I have had some requests for this recipe, so I made it AGAIN and took a picture this time. Then, we ripped out the zucchini plants. Most of them were going to feed the pigs anyway, and they were not that good anymore, either- kinda tough. I did have some more recipes to try out, but they will have to wait for next year. So…. last one! Zucchini Alfredo4 cups young, tender zucchini- cut into…

Zucchini Bread

The zucchini continues….I am picking over two dozen a day! It is quite ridiculous!So, today I give you, zucchini bread. Not an original idea for zucchini, but it is devoured quickly year-round in my house! When I have zucchini coming out of my ears like I do right now, I shred the zucchini and put it in freezer bags to freeze for later use. Just thaw and drain the water off when you make it.…

Manly Bunting

I am trying to do more craft projects with the kids because it affords me a few minutes where they are not inventing their own “projects.” So, while supper was cooking last night, we threw together a “Welcome Home” bunting for hubby who had to stay away for a night because of work. Since it was a last minute job, I used whatever I had on hand. I wanted to make it “manly” for him,…

Play Pea Pods Tutorial

As pomised yesterday, here is my new tutorial on the play pea pods I made with the girls.I used some old green fleece (felt would have been better but I didn’t have any green), beads from a broken, gaudy, old Avon necklace, and some green ribbon. First I made a pattern on an old index card and traced it on the fleece- this was cheapy, one-sided fleece, so I used the non-fleecy side. I folded…

Chocolate Chip Panacakes

My blog has been neglected.What have I done lately… gone to a zoo, an amusement park, and Kindergarten; been on our gigantic homemade slip-n-slide; and started many, many craft projects… started. Oh, I have finished things. My hubby’s jeans are all patched (for now), I have mended a few dresses (yes, there is that dirty “m” word), and my bathroom floor is scrubbed. Just nothing all that exciting. I have also been working on getting…

Easter Sewing Part 4

My skirt is the last in the series… I wanted and A-line, and I loved the contrast of plain white against the fabric in the other skirts, so I wanted to trim with white. I used a pattern, sort of- because I made it myself! I took a skirt I already have and took the measurements of the bottom width and the length of the skirt and my waist. Then I took a piece of…

Easter Sewing Part 3

For my youngest daughter, I wanted to make a dress instead. She is little, so I had enough material. I tried to make a pillowcase dress from this tutorial, but it was too big and because the material is stiffer than regular cotton, when I tightened the ribbons to make it fit it was then too short. I fixed the shortness by adding a ruffle on the bottom from the white cotton. I took a…

Easter Sewing Part 2

For the next skirt in my Easter sewing series- I went totally without pattern! I decided I wanted to make this one a longer style with a wide white waistband along the top and a ribbon bow accent. I made another rectangle measuring 18” by the fabric width- 60”and sewed it into a tube. Again, I overlocked the edges and hemmed the bottom. Then I made a wide, white waistband by taking a 30” by…
