A Weekend of Cooking

I finally had time this weekend to cook- lots.... I made long life noodles, scalloped potatoes, baked potato soup, cookie press cookies and baked three meat pasta- it was so much fun- and tasty! My freezer and fridge are now stocked for the next few weeks- I love cooking!

My First Afghan!

While I was home for Christmas Gram taught me how to crochet- I know, you say to yourself, how could I not already know how.... but there it is- I admit my deficiencies... Anyway, I just finished my first crocheted afghan- Smokey likes it too!

Fun Filled Weekend

I had a busy but fun weekend Jan 30- Feb 2. It was my friend, Alessia's, birthday - she is actually from Italy and we (the Lange Lab) thought it was a good idea to take her to the Olive Garden- so she could feel at home (can you hear my sarcasm?).
On her actual birthday Alessia made pizza from her family recipe for Nancy and I- plus I kicked both their butt's in Oceanopoly (Monopoly with a sea theme- from my marine bio days).
Then, on Sunday, we got together to watch my Steelers beat the Cardinals at my place!

See- I told you it was a crazy weekend! Crazy but lots of fun...
