I saw some pretty blankets on Ravelry last night while looking around and thought I'd share. The link to the Ravelry project pages with more info are beneath each photo.
I really love this one! I also have enough squares like these already made in a swirled peach color to put together a baby blanket like this. It is next on my list after the Baby Bobble Blanket is finished. Ravelry Page: HERE.
I thought this was a cute idea with the solid square and flowers appliqued in the middle. It seems like it would be a really quick project to do with only two seams to sew or crochet together. Ravelry Page: HERE
Knit but really neat. Ravelry Page: HERE
This is a huge square. It only takes 12 to make a big blanket. See the blanket on the Ravelry Page: HERE
I really liked this Christmas afghan pattern and the yarn used. Ravelry Page: HERE
That's right...it's LOW CARB! The crust was made with cauliflower, eggs, mozzarella, oregano, and garlic powder. It wasn't crispy, but it was delicious! (The front piece in the above picture looks yellow because there was cheddar sprinkled on that half of the pizza.)
Low-Carb Cauliflower Crust Recipe: HERE (I used different toppings)
FYI: The lowest-carb pizza sauce I have found is Muir Glen brand, and it's terrific. Five net carbs per 1/4 cup, and I don't use much more than that on an entire pizza. I had two slices of pizza for dinner last night. I would do the math on that, but I hate math so I'm not going to. Let's just say it's less than 1 carb per slice, m'kay?
I made some home-made peanut butter this morning with the leftover peanuts from Christmas candy. I just poured them into my food processor (raw peanuts, no salt) and processed until it was a sandy texture. Then I added about 1 Tbsp Splenda and then kept adding tablespoons of water and processing it until it was the smoothness I wanted. I ended up adding about 1/2 cup of water for 8 oz of peanuts. (You could add oil.) Then I added a dash of salt. One net carb per ounce. (8 servings in the container pictured above.) The total carbs was 4 per 2 Tbsp of peanuts, but then you can subtract the fiber content, which is 3. Total net carb = one. Yay!
I absolutely cannot stand any diet drink. They just have a horrible aftertaste to me, so I've been sticking to water or unsweet tea since we started this low-carb eating. But Tuesday when I was at the surgery center, they gave me one of these Diet Sierra Mists. Oh my! I like it a lot and had The Captain run up and get me some when we got home.
As much effort and cooking and planning and chopping I've done for this "diet," I should have the skinniest ass in town! Not quite there yet.
Have a nice day.
Leave me some love.
