Mini Meatloaves with Blue Cheese Filling. Delectable! Sauteed grape tomatoes, oven sweet potato fries and broccoli rounded out the meal. Just the ticket for a wintery night. Click on the link for the recipe.
My daughter has a Bodum (French Press). She does not have a microwave and complained to me about her coffee getting cold before she could have a second cup. She hinted about a Bodum cozy. So, before Christmas one day, I went to the local Starbucks, measuring tape in hand. I got a few weird looks as I measured the French Press up, down and all around. I felted some sweaters earlier and one was really thick. A little cutting, very little stitching, a couple of buttons, and voilà! The coffee-drinking daughter says it works well. My husband thinks I need to make a French beret for the top. We'll see.
And another pot of irises, this one in the kitchen, on a pretty plate given to me by my eldest daughter (not the coffee-drinking one). Bright mandarin oranges liven it up - I'm craving some colour these days. But not too much.
