Happy June!

I hope you had a nice weekend. We just hung out around the house. I was able to knit some socks and booties for Cornelia's granddaughter. I made them in different sizes. I still need to add the little pearl buttons on each side of the booties.
All of the patterns are from Ravelry.com. I love Ravelry - so many wonderful patterns.
And buffalo wings - I love buffalo wings, too. This is my favorite way to make them... I bake them on stoneware baking sheets (no oil needed). I sprinkle them with garlic salt and pepper and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, flip, add more garlic salt and pepper and bake and additional 30 minutes. Coat with whatever sauce you like. YUM! I make oven fried chicken the same way ... garlic salt, pepper, and flour and then bake 30 minutes, flip, 30 minutes at 400 degrees. It's so crispy and goooooood. Stoneware, I love you. :O)

I forgot to tell you that for Mothers Day the kids bought me an electric Crêpe Maker and some boxed Crepe Mix. It works really really well and the mix is so fast and easy - and tasted really good, too. So I made crepes for breakfast yesterday morning. I had what I thought was just enough for one more so Molly and I decided to split it. Well, it was more batter than I thought so our lovely thin crepe was as thick as a tortilla and looked more like a burrito! But with the strawberries, bananas, and blueberries and cream inside it was still pretty darn yummy.
And my kiln still isn't here AND I haven't received an email saying it's even shipped! I'm going to call them today. WHERE'S MY KILN?!!!

June 1st! Yippee. It's almost summer vacation. I'm going to get busy on the journal for the baby. MUST get that finished TODAY! Happy Monday friends!

Happy Monday AND June 1st!!! Stoneware? It sounds magic. I hope all your good things come to you (Like the kiln!) and I looooove the booties. I am so jealous of your summer holidays. No commitments for a while. Sounds wonderful!!! Enjoy Mary!

I've always wondered what buffalo wings are. Do buffalo have wings?
