The Dark Days Challenge is fun!
On Thursday I made Spaghetti. The sauce was made up of sausage from our pigs that we raised, the tomatoes were home canned tomato sauce, I did use store bought Italian seasoning to spice the sauce up. But for the noodles I used spaghetti squash I grew in my garden! So everything but the seasonings were home grown/local!! And it was very good! I actually liked the squash better then the noodles. It was sweeter. My kids, well not so much.
Last night we had another home grown/local meal! I didn't get a picture of it, but it was a simple dinner that I threw together because we needed to use up some of our roast. The roast was from our steer, the potatoes and onions from a local farmer, and the cheese was also local! I made a casserole out of it and it threw it in the oven. It was yummy!!
As you know, I've been sewing. I am having a blast! I've spent a lot of time with my seam ripper, but it's been a good patience learning exercise for me.
I started with my daughters pj bottoms~
before I finished them)
I finished an adult apron, 3 children's aprons, a skirt and pj bottoms! I am loving the fabric on my niece's pj pants!
Then my youngest daughter and I put these "Scrap Monsters" together. She came up with the pattern and I sewed them together. I am thrilled with how they turned out! Now all my kids want one to keep for themselves.
I have a couple little things to finish sewing today, then off to the kitchen to bake up some goodies to take to our Christmas Eve family get together tonight.
I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday!
