stranded but not hungry

  1. Start two pans of boiling water, one for your pasta (cook according to package) and one for your sausage. Strain both. Dice sausage and add to your pasta pan.
  2. Turn on your broiler.
  3. Add your artichokes, spinach, half of your parmesan cheese, all of the mozzarella cheese and the pepper to the pasta and mix it well.
  4. Use a broiler safe pan, we use our cast iron skillets for everything, and pour the mixture into your pan of choice. Sprinkle the top with your remaining parmesan. Broil for 6 minutes, until it is in brown in spots.

We were planning on traveling to this weekend, but due to living in the tundra the interstate has been closed for over 24 hours. We are staying warm, enjoying being home and attempting to be productive.

A warm blessing to all for a joyous, blessed New Year. Hello 2011!

Another blistery winter night got me back into the craft room and veeeery anxious for those christmas cards to come in the mail! Um..have we even done ours yet? No. We'll get there ;) I promise you, this is another easy, low cost kraft to keep those christmas cards organized and off your refrigerator. Just use stick pins and enjoy their beauty all month long (or at our house until atleast February). Be prepared for alot of fuzz and fabric strings all over you when using burlap. This kraft cost me under $15 dollars and less than an hour to put together! Enjoy ;)

By far one of the quickest easiest crafts to date! With a stressful busy week, this get your hands sticky, pull of and put on that sticker four times, can't wait until it dries I want to use it project, warmed my heart and gets me very anxious for the holidays!

I recently purchased the paper mache portion of this kraft with a handy hoblob coupon and this entire kraft cost me only $7. Can't beat that right? I added the modge podge onto the supply list so that when you're finished putting your number stickers on you can put a thin layer over each box. This will keep it intact for many little or large fingers for years to come. Now I get to search for fun treats to keep us entertained until the big day 2-5!
