Happy Veteran's Day. We opened one of Inspector Gadget's MRE's (Meal Ready to Eat) the other day. I've learned not to ask why we have things like MRE's. Maybe my cooking got bad for a while. Anyway, it was fun to see what was in one and use the cooking bag to heat up the meatloaf and mashed potatoes. The instructions were kind of funny and I cannot recommend the cracker. Maybe I should have put some of the jelly on it. The MRE experiment made me appreciate our veterans even more. I think I'll Adopt a Soldier and get a care package together.
It's also Corduroy Appreciation Day. Nifty quilts has a great post linking to 30 corduroy quilts. Save the wales.
Finished! I hope this wheelchair lap quilt keeps one of our veterans warm and cozy. It's pretty great living in a country that works so hard to protect us. I wish I could make everyone a home-cooked meal to show my appreciation.
