I use a potato masher to make my ground meats perfect for gravies, dips, and sauces. Works great!
Last days of warm weather here in Missouri so we are grilling a lot. Easy grilled chicken is just marinading frozen boneless, skinless chicken breast in Zesty Italian Salad Dressing (just enough to cover the chicken) overnight (or freeze the chicken in the dressing and it will marinade as it defrosts).
Grill and it is perfect! Great with pasta salad or baked potato and a green salad.
My friend is decorating her spare bedroom in orange and hot pink. Looks better than it sounds. I found these lamps at Hobby Lobby and Alice loved them!
She has this gorgeous orange couch and love seat (very retro!) so I am working on an aghan shaped like a huge hot pink star to contrast with the rectangles and squares of the couch. I think it will be a great Christmas present.
Very simple pattern of shell stitches that can be found on Ravelry here.
