I know. Awful. Hey, at least we took off the chocolate. BTW, he loved the jelly beans that lined the peak of the roof - nibbled them off one by one. And if you are wondering why he's eating the losing house, it's because it had less chocolate; the winning house was covered in M&Ms on the roof. At least that's my story. ;)
recent toaster fire. Still, that didn't stop me from being curious about the melted peppermint candy "trays" that had been popping up...of course, I didn't have any of the candy on hand the day I decided to try this, so I used some leftover mini candy canes...same thing, right?
I was trying to make a heart here...and also see what one candy cane looked like, melted. Hmmm.
Better. Less time in the oven. Weird but fun - if I ever think to buy a bag of those peppermint candies, I will actually attempt to make a tray. I don't know why, other than, why not???
Last Friday, Jeff and I went to Dallas to meet up with blogger (and friend) Debby. We met at my favorite burger place in Frisco - I bet you can guess which one...
Yep. Scotty P's. And no, I don't get compensated every time I mention them...I just love their burgers THAT much!
Debby and Brett, who is laughing after I told them to move closer together to for the picture and he said "do I have to?" - brothers! I swear, they never change, right?!?
So after we ate lunch, we walked over to the oh-so-conveniently located frozen yogurt shop nearby, where we indulged. However, neither of us were game enough to try the avocado flavor...maybe next time.
And then? Debby taught me how to knit! One lefty to another - I finally got it!!! She gave me the knitting needles and yarn (notice that they are the same colors as my glasses? cool!) and after a bit of consternation getting that first row started, I was off and running - er, knitting!!!
What a fun visit - I'm just sorry we didn't have more time to chat - three hours went by in a flash! But there will be more visits in the future, and one of these days, I'll get to meet her menagerie! Oh, and look:
I'm still knitting! Going to figure out how to "cast off" soon, and start another piece that is wider - I plan on making a scarf, and have it finished while it's still winter here in Texas (which should last for another 2.5 months) - better get moving, right?
Have a great weekend!
