How was everyone's weekend? Mine was pretty busy and fun. Friday night my daughter was at a sleepover so hubby and I went on a date to California Pizza Kitchen which was nice & relaxing and the food was really good. While at the mall, I had to use a gift certificate that I had for Williams and Sonoma and this is what I got- a big red "batter bowl" with handle and pouring spout, in my favorite color, of course! (It only came in red, lucky for me.) I also got one of those long skinny scrapers for getting the last bit of jelly or mayo from the bottom of the jar:
I recently saw someone on TV, or maybe it was in a magazine, who had a ceramic egg holder. And I thought, Why would someone need that? The eggs come in a perfectly good cardboard container at the store. But I walked into Anthropologie and what did I see? You guessed it. And somehow at that moment I decided that I needed one too. And I got some cute dish towels too.
Saturday night, my husband and I went to see a Tim Hawkins comedy show with some of our friends- I laughed so hard that my cheeks hurt by the end :D He did 2 shows and the place was packed. If you don't know who Tim Hawkins is, you can see a couple of his YouTube videos below. We own a couple of his DVD's- very funny and clean so the whole family can watch.
We also helped with a spaghetti dinner that we had at church on Sunday as a fundraiser for the Youth Group. Sorry I didn't get any photos, but imagine spaghetti & meatballs, garlic bread and salad on white plastic disposable plates in a church basement and you get the idea, ha ha. It was tasty, but of course the best part is just hanging out with your friends.... And the kids made some money for their upcoming retreat.
Also, somewhere in there, I made and photographed 3 recipes for my next project. Have I mentioned this here on the blog yet? Oh I don't know I really can't keep track! Anyway, I am going to be releasing an e-pattern in February- it will be my first one in a digital format, which is nice because I can include lots of full-color step out photos to make the patterns easy to understand. And you will learn how to roll an egg roll, in case that is something you are interested in....
Did you do anything fun this weekend??
