Woman with Bouquet

Started my Woman with Bouquet Cross stitch again.  Made a major count mistake while trying to watch TV instead of paying attention.  Oops.  Oh well, a little floss and I’m back.  I want to get this done by Christmas so that I have it hanging in my living room.

Strawberry Pizza Pie

Yesterday I took the time to make a new dessert for Jamie to take to a potluck lunch at work.  I will be making it again for us at home.  I found the recipe on one of my favourite food blogs Mommy Kitchen.I think it turned out pretty good and nothing came home so his co-workers must have enjoyed it.Of course I couldn’t follow the recipe exactly because what fun would that  be.  Actually it was because I left it to the last minute and couldn’t find any Sugar Cookie dough in the premade section.  So I substituted it with Milk Chocolate chip cookie dough and I also used Smuckers Jam instead of Strawberry Gel.This got me to thinking that until my 3rd child was born I would not have made this using a mix.  Now I find myself often reaching for pre-made or mixes instead of starting from scratch.But my new motto is if it tastes good and and saves time why not.
