    What are we having for dinner this week?

    Sunday- lunch at church and leftovers for dinner

    Monday- Greek Spaghetti (I accidentally defrosted ground beef last week on the night I had this planned- so I bumped it to this week and will defrost chicken this time!  I ended up making this nasty beef casserole that I will never make again.  So gross- I couldn’t eat more than a few bites.)

    Tuesday- fried rice

    Wednesday- leftovers

    Thursday- we leave for vacation!  Hooray!

    This week we’re having a soup and salad lunch and baby shower at church, so we’ll just have leftovers for dinner.  We’ll try to eat up the last of the leftovers on Wednesday before we leave town too.  And if you think this is a good chance to come rob our house, we have a burley biker dude dog sitting our attack German Shepherd, so don’t bother!

  • Denim bag #2

    Date: 2011.06.03 | Category: crafts | Response: 1

    I made my second denim bag the other day for my girlfriend’s birthday.  This time I found a cute cargo skirt at Goodwill and some fabulous fabric at Joanns.  I added a garage sale belt and I love the combination!  Since the skirt had a bottom hem I just sewed right along the bottom edge and then created a flat bottom where the hem is.  This bag is much bigger than my first one- it’s more the size of a small tote- with lots of pockets.

    Unfortunately my sewing machine was possessed by an evil spirit during the making of this bag.  I don’t know what was going on, but the whole process took several times longer than it should have and I ended up hand stitching several areas so I could finish it and go to bed.  Of course when I used my machine today it was working fine, so I don’t know what the problem was- although I’m glad it’s resolved itself!

    Here’s my finished bag- didn’t it turn out great?  If I were a better blogger I would have taken a picture of the bottom and of the back.  But I’m not.  Sorry!
