Tuesday Tales

I joined a group on Ravelry called Blizzard.  It is a CAL/KAL of snowflakes.  You make as many snowflakes as you can in the year and then attach them.  You can make a shawl, tablerunner, tablecloth, etc.  I got a nice 100% cotton yarn at Hobby Lobby.  It is white with a metallic thread thru it. 

Some one in the group said that she was going to put hers together and make a tree skirt.  She would lay the crochet snowflakes over a piece of velvet.  That sounded gorgeous to me. 

Started back to homeschool yesterday.  Bri was not really that interested.  We got some stuff done.  I got started late.  So I will have to get back to a scheduled time.

Here is another recipe:

Easy Cheesy Biscuits

2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk  (you can use buttermilk)

Three bean baked beans

1 16oz package of ground pork sausage (Browned and drained)
1 15oz can Lima beans
1 15 oz can kidney beans
1 28 oz can baked beans
1 5oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup brown sugar

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl
Put all greased 9x13 baking dish and bake at 350 for one hour.

Serves 8-10

In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients. 
Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until it looks like cornmeal.
Stir in the cheese
Add milk to mixture, just enough to hold the dough together
Roll the dough 1/2 inch thick
Cut and bake on a ungreased cookie sheet at 425 for 12 to 15 minutes.

Have a wonderful day.
