Super Saturday

There. I decorated for Halloween. Ha! I couldn't resist this little pie pumpkin. Isn't he adorable? I assume you can make a pie from it, right? I actually want to make pumpkin soup. I'll keep him around for a while then hack him up for cooking purposes.

I finally found these Artisan lettuces. Yum. I like fancy lettuces. Remember when it used to be just iceberg? I ate an entire head of iceberg lettuce once when I was a teenager. Just plain. I munched on it like an apple.

Found these big fresh raspberries too. I keep sneaking in the fridge to eat them. So much for using them for anything else.

 And kale. I love kale. Have you ever made kale chips? I love those things.

I also tried my hand at homemade egg noodles. I thought they would be good with chicken paprikash. I'm not sure why I've never made chicken paprikash, but I will definitely make it again. Delicious.

I used to walk into my grandmothers house and see noodles drying like this. I heard a few "what's up with the noodles on the chairs?" from my crew. I like to keep them on their toes.

Dumped my orange scraps on the desk and decided to make a quilt block for our guild's BOM. The theme is Halloween and the block is quilter's choice.

A pumpkin emerged eventually. I'm sure I made the background piecing harder than it should have been, but that's how I roll. I'm off to Jo-Ann's big coupon sale where they put everything on sale and the coupons therefore do not work. : ) Whatever. It beats doing laundry.


  1. oh yeah, love great lettuce. I ate some excellent lunches this summer of spring greens, rotiserrie chicken and raspberries. mmm. really cute pumpkin block!

  2. Cute funny post! Love your simple decorating, and kale, and the noodles, and your paper-pieced pumpkin - try saying that five times fast! Joann's is very annoying like that, in my opinion. But I'll keep going anyway :-)

  3. Wow. I am so impressed that you keep your scraps separated by color. Mine are all dumped in big ol boxes although I hope someday to get them organized.

    Kale chips ~Ewww! I'll have to take your word on those. Hated kale as a kid.


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
