Happy New Year...

I hope everyone was able to ring in the New Year with a bang...because I was asleep by 9:00pm.  Sometimes I wish I could stay awake to welcome the New Year in like most of the  population in the United States.  But then again, if I stayed up I probably wouldn't be able to do all that I did today.  Take a look: 

YUMMY!!!! That's right, count them all.  7 loaves of the bread...please note you don't see the shorty loaf...Tim and I did a quality check on the first one.  Also, I converted the Focaccia recipe to a bread machine friendly. I think it needed more rosemary...for next time.
Also, I wanted to include the latest update of Simply Live cross stitch project.  I know it isn't the best pic, but I'm almost done!  WOOOHOOO!  This weekend has been a good weekend to stay inside the house being the temperatures are in the N-E-G-A-T-I-V-E degrees! I not kidding!!  Frickn' cold in the midwest country.


  1. Hey, Steph

    I really don't think I would go as far as to say I'm "gourmet"! Honestly, the bread machine did all the work!
