Rainy Day

Boring Photo of Leftover Marinara Sauce
I gave this slow cooker marinara sauce a try. I halved the recipe because I probably have a vat of spaghetti sauce in the depths of my freezer. I didn't have crushed tomatoes, so I used diced. Crushed would be better. And I left out the brown sugar. I always leave sugar out of my tomato sauces. The balsamic vinegar was a neat addition. I've never thought to add that before. I added a splash of white wine too because the mixture looked kind of thick. It was an easy recipe and the sauce is pretty rich for having no meat. I love finding new blogs and Budget Bytes is a really good one.

The Florida quilt is finished. I hope to get it in the mail this week way ahead of deadline. I hope my partner likes it.

I had some fun with the label. That's Mickey Mouse in case you can't tell by my graphic rendition.

A spool block for our guild's monthly block lotto. I might have enough gray to make another. The block was engineered by the talented Krista (I have one of her quilts!) and is featured in the Modern Blocks book. It's a small quilting world, isn't it?
