Yes, Mod Crosses in black and white, just to take a look at value. As you can see, laying these blocks out pretty much filled the room! I've got all the blocks sewn into rows now, and the top four rows together. whew.
Meanwhile, I've heard a few of you (here and on IG) mention the new cookbooks you got for Christmas, so I thought I'd share mine. Friends and family know I love cookbooks, but rarely do I get four!Giada's cookbooks, and was really pleased to receive "weeknights". I can definitely use the help getting meals on the table after a full day at work. One of the recipes I really want to try soon is the Creamy Sweet Potato and Rosemary Soup, which for your convenience is also here.
The Pioneer Woman is just plain fun, and I swear every recipe of hers that I've tried has been delightful and down-to-earth. (meatloaf! cinnamon rolls!) Plus I just really enjoy her entertaining writing style.
I shared about skillet recently, and boy have I regretted not trying Poutine last week when we visited the diner, after hearing all your comments. Luckily, I found a recipe on epicurious, so we tried it (with frozen fries even), and though not authentic obviously, we really enjoyed it. Not every day food, but you can bet I'll try it next time it's offered.
And then there's Flavors, which is organized by the most enticing flavor themes, among them - Herb Garden, Salt and Pepper, Garlic, Chile and Spice, Smoke and Coals, Ocean, Chocolate and Vanilla. It looks a bit more "special occasion", but the photos are mouth-watering.
Soooo, plenty of inspiration for mealtime. I really have no excuse, now do I?
Feel free to share from your kitchen, table, or related projects and link up here. And if you, too, got a new cookbook, I'd love to hear about it!
