Weekend Ramblin'...

Hello world!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend! 
I'm not one for making new year resolutions because they don't usually get resolved! I did tell myself that I want to get back to cooking more often than what it seems I have been over this past year.  So, Friday night, I broke out my new Pioneer Woman cookbook and fixed us up some chicken fried steak for supper!  Complete with mashed potatoes and gravy.  Apple pie for dessert!  I'm not one for following a recipe on such dishes but I'm tellin' you, the difference it can make....just the addition of a couple ingredients?  YUM!  So thank you Pioneer Woman! I look forward to cooking more of your recipes!

If you are on Facebook, you may have seen the status updates "for my creative friends" handmade challenge.
So, besides the cooking and usual household chores that need to be done on days off, I took a little time to dig through my fabric stash and also took out my crochet hooks, to start planning and creating my handmades.  Every once in a great while, I will get out the crochet's a break from my usual handworks and keeps me in practice, even though my projects are small and simple. Some of the fabrics you see are remnants from past projects, some are just small cuts, but they will become small quilted pieces of some form. 
While sorting through my stash of supplies, I realized that it has been a long while since I've had a give-away here at the farm, so be on the lookout! 
Time to get busy....Enjoy your day!

I have never made chicken fried steak, but Randy orders this every time we go to Chili's. He says it is the best he has ever eaten. I love to cook, but The Pioneer Woman's recipes don't match my Weight Watchers plan. . . darn it!

I love to make homemade chicken fried steak. The recipe I use is from the Northern Exposure Cookbook . Remember that t.v. show? Well this book has the food that was mentioned in it.

Love the fabrics, especially the coffee fabric!

Have a great rest of the week Cindy!
