Knitting Up A Storm!

Monday, January 21, 2008

Thanks all for your comments regarding getting better. I am back to 100%, but poor Jay is only at 90%. She stayed with my in laws on Friday and all she did was watch TV for the whole day. I packed her book, markers, paper and Nintendo DS and she didn't touch any of it. Today she is feeling alot better, so I hope it stays that way.

I picked up my Tilted Duster and knit about 1.5" of the skirt. The ribbing looks so good and squishy. I wish I would have brought it with me today to knit it on my ride into work. But, I didn't. Instead, I listened to my brand spanking new iPod Touch. This thing rocks! I have 166 pictures, 133 songs and one video uploaded on it. All this only takes up less then 1 gig of memory. Holy moly, I can not believe how much stuff you can have on it. Wow. This thing is impressive.

For those of you out there that don't like cooking, like me, I came up with a system that works very well for me and I hope it helps others. So, here goes:

On the weekend I scour Racheal Ray's and Foodnetwork.ca websites for interesting and easy recipes. I save them to my PC, print them, put in plastic covers and put in my black douatang:


Then I decide what I want to make for the week and write down each day's meal on these little green papers:


Then I put them on the side of the fridge in order:


I then wirte all the items I need to buy to make it and go food shopping on Sunday or Monday night. Easy eh? I think so.

We've had such great meals these last three weeks and my whole family can't wait to see what we are having. So much so, that if I don't make a new dish, my older daughter is very disappointed. AND my husband is bragging about all the meals he is eating. He has NEVER been impressed with my cooking. Frankly neither have I. So I am doing something about it.
