I picked it up several years back while visiting Nashville, Tennessee. Don't you love these photos? This could have been my fridge in college, complete with a two liter of Tab stuffed in there.
"After you kill the possum be careful not to let him get away."
Don't you love "salad" recipes with marshmallows or cool whip in them?
This cast iron skillet full of grease looks just like my grandmother's. She used to have a can full of bacon grease on her stove and used it to cook everything. So in honor of the cast iron skillet I made something- albeit a little less greasy.
Plum Skillet Cake. I love plums and nectarines and eagerly await them every summer. And this recipe is so lovely and easy. Martha's recipes never fail do they?
I used Quilt Dad's awesome tutorial to make a Wonky Log Cabin Block. I love the tutorial because it goes step by step with lots of photos for beginning quilter's like me. I also love the fact that it is supposed to be wonky because, as I said here, I can barely sew a straight line.
Wow. Let me just say pickling is my new favorite thing to do.
And look at this gorgeous dill! Another addition to the garden next year...
Bad photo but they taste awesome. I used this recipe and it's delicious! Very crisp, spicy, dilly pickles. So now I am searching for other things to pickle. Peaches? Did you know you can pickle blueberries too? Do you have any good pickling recipes?
Okay, I have taken the first baby step towards another addiction: charm packs. The above fabric is Hello Betty by Moda- isn't is retro! I don't plan on attempting anything fancy, just basic patches machine sewn together- something like this. That's it. That doesn't seem like such a tall order for a beginning quilter but I can't sew a straight line. Seriously. My seems are wonky.
This is It's A Hoot also by Moda, my next purchase.
