The Pantone Matching System (PMS) fashion color report for fall is out. Pretty, huh? I always enjoy the names they come up with. I might have to find some Kona solids in these colors.
Speaking of color, we're really addicted to these mini sweet peppers. I'm on my second bag. We eat them as snacks, grilled, cut up in salads, stuffings and stir-fry. I also stuffed a few with a goat cheese, basil and sun dried tomato mixture. Leave it to me to make vegetables fattening. Fried okra for dinner tonight!
These poor-man's Turtles are easy and quick to make. A small pretzel topped with a Rolo candy and baked for about five minutes. Then top with a toasted pecan. Hollywood doesn't like pecans, so she sandwiched the candy between two pretzels. Hint: buy the single serving rolls of Rolo instead of a bag of them. You don't have to peel all the foil off.
Inspector Gadget ate his on vanilla ice cream.
My morning crafty party was crocheting. Knitting didn't gel with me. Too hard and very awkward for me. I saw a crochet class on a blog and gave it a try. Much easier for me. I have crocheted before and started a simple ripple afghan in high school, but never made it very far. I would love to be able to crochet those amigurumi animals.
