Apparently, April is Green Month...

I was finishing the black jacket (pics coming soon) last night and pondering my next project(s).  Apparently, April is going to be Green Month. Well, bring on spring!

And yes, Ruger likes to be in photos too!

The chunky yarn on the right is Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick. I couldn't wait, so the cowl is already finished and just needs the seam sewn. I will more than likely have the matching beret done tonight.

The small skein of light green yarn is going to be a snake for Jamie's Birthday in May and I can't wait to start on it. Problem... what I want it to look like is in my head, and not on paper anywhere that I can find. Oh, well, I have until May.  I haven't figured out what to make with the Homespun yet, but it could be a hat and mittens someday.

I also have some socks and fingerless gloves to work on too when time allows... HA!

The other night for dinner Brian & I made this...
The Simple Risotto is from Everyday Food #51 and is our fav risotto recipe. It has several variations and is just heavenly! And the scallops... ah, the scallops. Seared Scallops with Lemon-Butter Sauce is from Weight Watchers Annual Recipes for Success 2009. Delish! Don't worry Dad, we will make them for you soon!

My family loves the Wet Burritos at Liberty Lanes (we don't bowl, we just go for the Burritos!) and I think we have almost perfected them!

Let us know what you did different or any suggestions you have!
Mom and I made these for dinner on Saturday night. They were almost perfect, and huge. We need to find the same plates that they use at the bowling alley. We had to bake them on pie plates. Yep, I was drinking wine & milk with dinner that night, the sauce was pretty spicy!

I am heading to the lake this weekend to get some scrapbooking done. Our wedding album is almost finished and I am spending the day on Friday in the basement with Lean Mean Thirteen, the space heater and Stormy.

Have a wonderful weekend! And bring on the Green of Spring!

  2. Hi There Good Lookin':
    Looks like you have many many knitting plans. Better you than me. Looking forward to a beautiful green spring. Anything is better than the white stuff we have suffered though the last 6 months. Love ya Babe.
