More Than Wool

Deramores is my favourite wool and pattern site and I’m always sharing my favourites. See my previous post on the fabulous Dera Dogs (Which I’m still making!)

Here is another of my latest projects which I’ve just bought, but not started yet. I can’t resist making blankets.

And I’m also working on a special little project with this lovely wool. I really like working with Scheepjes anyway, but this cotton is such a lovely wool. I’ll show you my project when I’ve finished, at the moment it’s a shell (literally!)

These are just a few of the colours available in Sheepjes Cahlista.

Finally

Here’s a sneak peak of a cardigan I’m working on. I saved loads of money using my own colour scheme and Stylecraft DK and it’s working up wonderfully. I’m nearly finished and can’t wait to show you the whole garment.

Meal Planning – Another Birthday

This week we are on to the second birthday of the year, Graham, my husband. We won’t be going out anywhere so we’ll probably have a take out on Wednesday.

Last weeks meal plan went okay. We didn’t have a Brinner (fry up) we just had battered chicken we found in the freezer with chips. The pizza was replaced with my home made puff pastry pizza. The Chorizo and Mozzarella gnocchi bake was really delicious. Well definitely have it again sometime. Although the recipe said it was for 6 and it was barely enough for three of us (the others had pasta bake as they were not keen to try gnocchi.)

The Planner

The planner has taken it’s place on the fridge and it’s being used well. I’m getting more suggestions off family members for what they fancy, or if they wish to change something. It’s also good for remembering what we have planned for each day so we can make sure we have all the ingredients. I filled it in this week and then did the shopping. Then I remembered it was Graham’s birthday! So we will have to bake him a cake and swap Wednesdays meal for a take out of his choice (I bet it’s Indian curry!)

This weeks Menu + Birthday Meal

  • Monday – pizza
  • Tuesday – Fry up (Brinner)
  • Wednesday – Birthday Take Out
  • Thursday – spaghetti bolognese (or lasagne)
  • Friday – Fish and chips
  • Saturday – chicken pasta bake
  • Sunday – pie and mash

I will have to get the kids in the kitchen to make our favourite chocolate Cake for their Dad’s birthday…no idea what we’ll decorate it with yet though. Maybe my little chefs can come up with something.
