Week 48 Tuesday (12/9/14)

For the next two weeks I will be putting in recipes that I will not be cooking. My freezer is solid and I need a little time to eat three meals a day out of the fridge. I am once again eating crazy things for breakfast. Today, I had Mulligatawny. It was so good, but this yummy soup is not what I would consider breakfast.  This will also give me time to cook ahead as I empty dishes.  

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Quail Gravy        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays

         This recipe goes with the one from yesterday. Well, since she has a recipe for fried quail, it is no surprise that she also created one for quail gravy. If you are bold and daring enough to try fried quail, then go out on a limb and make the gravy, too.  Go ahead – be bold, be daring, be a wild bird eater.  I love it!

Craft Corner

         I hate shopping, and crowds even more. The only time I ventured out on Black Friday was at the crack of dawn. Jo-Anne’s opened at 6 a.m. and Michaels at 7:00. I went shopping for fabric at JoAnne’s. They have a wonderful sale on flannel for about $1.25 per yard. This is the fabric that I need to create my baby blankets. Between Jo-Anne’s and Michaels I rang up over $400.00 worth of fabric and supplies, but actually paid about $70.00. This is thanks to the sale prices, a $100 gift card from last year’s class, and another $25.00 gift card from an individual student.  It felt so good to come home with so many bags of goodies, and pay such a small amount. I arrived home before 8:00 a.m. and then had the entire day for myself. Life can be so great!
