There’s a lot of cooking, baking, and rooster-making going on over here today. Hey, that rhymes!
I already made a Macaroni Salad…
Elbow macaroni, chopped onion, pimento, boiled eggs, sharp cheddar, and mayo.
And three Roosters…
I made all but the legs last night so this morning I had a crochet leg-fest. These are so freakin’ fun to make! You can find the pattern HERE. If I won the lottery, I would buy-up everything in Dawn’s shop! I love her stuff. And her dog is the cutest little long-haired wiener dog you’ve ever seen. I want one of those too. I know…you’re surprised, aren’t you? Hee. I’m sure she won’t mind if I show-off her little Phoebe and snag a picture…
Lordie, look how cute!
Those big eyes and tiny little legs!
I hope I don’t sound too stalker-like, Dawn. ;)
The Captain is making a grocery store run for me right now. I’m also going to make BBQ Chicken Thighs on the indoor grill pan, and a Three-Layer Tiramisu Cake! Pictures and the recipe tomorrow if it turns out. (Yes, I watched Paula Deen this morning and got all inspired to cook.)
I’m starting a diet next week – not sure what day yet – so I’m doing some baking today. When I go on a diet, I miss all the baking and cooking of some of my favorites the most. It’s just not as fun when the stuff I’m making is healthy! I’m sure I should change my attitude about that one.
We’ve got a race tomorrow AND the Oscars so I won’t be doing any baking then. I’ll just be eating leftovers and getting it out of my system. I’m still getting mentally ready for this. I just don’t want to talk about it much right now. I’m still getting my head straight. I must have my mind set correctly or it just won’t work. I’ll tell you more about it when I’m ready.
I’m going to make at least three more Roosters today. It’s easier on my arm to make these rather than trying to crochet on my blanket which is just a lot of repetitive stitches.
Gotta run now.
