Today I decided to make the Infinity Scarf for my nephew’s fiancee that I have been putting off. I have been putting it off as I am not a huge fan of working with the Jersey Init. This time it went better. Maybe because it’s for a family member and I was making it out of love. It is almost completed. I just have to do the hand stitching. I started it but decided to put it aside until tomorrow. Apparently it is not wise to hand stitch with black thread on grey and black fabric when one is wearing black….lesson learned. 
I also spent some time working on organizing my recipes. I have taken the recipes that I have been making over the years and the recipes from Pinterest that I love and put them on my laptop. That was the easy part. Now to add the recipes that are scattered around my house. Eventually I will be turning this into an actual bound cookbook. I am so excited about this. I was able to locate a local book binder that is helping me with this project.
My Love is making his amazing bbq chicken tonight for dinner. This got me to thinking that I simply must have cornbread to go with it…..so of to the kitchen I went. It smells delicious in here. A few weeks ago I made cornbread but learned I prefer it sweet so I tried a new recipe today. Hoping I like this one much better!
I will also be working on altering a pair of jeans for My Love. See I bought them for him for Christmas and the silly man took the tags off and discarded the receipt so he was unable to return them. When he tried them on they where HUGE. I bought the size he told me but an certain they where mislabeled. A bit nervous about this project but we decided together that worst case is that they will be up cycled into  something else.
Hope your enjoying this Beautiful Saturday!!!!

Fall has found a way into my heart! Summer has always been my favorite season. All of a sudden last night I started thinking how fall is so pretty and that I want some fall themed items for my living room and wouldn’t it be nice to make bake something pumpkin. This afternoon I have made a pan of pumpkin bars. No they are not from scratch…it is a box mix I picked up at Trader Joe’s last night.  I figured well the oven is on I mind as well make a batch of roasted chickpeas.  So I looked in the cupboard then quick searched Pinterest. I found what I was looking for and just finished them…Pumpkin Pie Roasted ChickPeas. Looking forward to them cooling as there is an ingredient in them that makes me curious as to how it will play in the flavor. Only time will tell. Currently I have a pot of  Chicken Rice Soup simmering  even though it is 78 degrees right now. When the cooking/baking bug hits me weather is irrelevant.  I had planned on doing some sewing today but that has yet to happen. Just having fun and enjoying this beautiful Saturday,  Hope you are too!
