The last couple of weeks have just been normal weeks here with a little cooking, a little sewing and some family time.
My husband is itching for spring and growing things. Our breakfast room is our sunniest room so it’s been turned into a seedling hatchery.
In the sewing room, I made 2 new aprons for me. The pattern is not new but one I’ve been using for more than a dozen years or so.
Both aprons are polka dot, one is lined with off white muslin and one is lined with tiny black checks
I want to do more sewing so I made a list
My granddaughter said maybe I could do one project a month and be done by November or so. I told her I hoped to finish a lot sooner than that. I guess we will see.
We had homemade pizza and I used the recipe on the back of an Aldi yeast envelope for the crust.
It made a really good thin crust.
I just put the 5 simple ingredients into a bread machine on dough cycle and baked the pizza the traditional way.
Dough - 3 cups flour, 1 packet yeast, 2 T olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 cup water
I will use this recipe again!

Some grands are still doing remote school
And we do a few crafts when we do school here too - that’s just a simple rag banner by Elizabeth
We finally got to have Christmas with the 3 grands in another town ❤️❤️❤️

And one more recipe. It’s a recipe I’ve made before and I like that it’s so quick to get it started with a no knead dough.
I made this with pecans instead of walnuts and it’s really good. I added cinnamon and left out the vanilla and the frosting too.
Here’s hoping February is a good month
I’m going to try to blog everyday again like I did in December
