Saturday Night’s Alright, Alright, Alright

Tonight was pretty good! I got a few more crafts finished and we had meatloaf, black-eyed peas and mashed taters. YUMMY!!!

Let me start with the first with the food.  It was so good.  I like to cook but have to admit that I don’t do it as often as I should.  And since today was one of those days where comfort foods sound like the best way to end the day I made meatloaf.  This time I tried something different.  While we were at one of our local Octoberfest we picked up a few of those packets for making dips.  At one of the vendors the gentleman working the booth (who was super friendly) told us about a few being a good addition to meatloaf.  My husband immediately perked up.  He not only loves dips he loves meatloaf.  Who am I kidding the man just loves food! So far we’ve had the Cinnabun (delish) and tonight I tried the jalapeno Bacon in the meatloaf.  It was great! It was spicy but it was really good and would also be a great burger.  And who may you ask is the brain behind these great dips? Well I’ll tell you Little Dippers Dip Mixes .  Yes if you click on their name you will see their site!  There are a few other WV vendors that I like and I’m sure the next time I have a taste of their wares they’ll get a shout out too!

Now on to the way I spent the rest of my afternoon and evening while I wasn’t eating. I was crrafting.  I know last night I was in love with a snowman but tonight my heart was stolen by a peacock!  I was playing around with bird pins, bows, and keychains earlier and then my son brought over a book and there was a peacock.  I thought “Hey! I can make a peacock! Why not?”.  And that’s just what I did.

Paulbert the Peacock

He was the most fun item I made today.  I accoplished making a few other items also but he is what I love most.  Don’t get me wrong I really like the brooches I finished and may keep few for myself.  I’m particularly fond of red/green felt circle with Christmas button brooch, a heart keychain,  2 tone grey/black broock and a bejeweled Christmas tree.  All of which may go into my personal collection.

My othe faves!

Along with the Christms tree and brooch I also completed another Christmas brooch and a Christmas bow.  All which were inspired while I put up Christmas decorations in the kitchen.  Yes that now means that 3 rooms completed.  Not much longer and I will have the inside of the house completed.  Hopefully we have a few days of nice weather and the husband will be able to get on the roof to hang the icicle lights (the only decorations I don’t try to do myself).

Hope everyone has a great night sleep and an awesome Sunday.  Tomorrow we get to go cheer on a great friends little boy in his Super Bowl game of pee wee football!  Go Team!!!
