Secret Santa Fiber Swap

Wanna play?

If you do, you can sign up here. And I know it says you have to have a certain rating, blah, blah, blah - but at the end it says I will accept people on a case by case basis (I put that in so all my imaginary friends who may be new to Swap-bot can play!).

The dinner yesterday came out spectacular! I made the turkey and it came out perfect. I made the sweet potato/apple casserole (recipe here) and it came out fine. I made this squash recipe (scroll down a bit) and it came out OK - I should've sauteed the onions before adding them in but I was trying to save time. Bad move. If I'd taken that step it would've turned out better. The cranberry chutney Rachel gave me was a huge hit! (Give us the recipe, girl!) The in-laws were spreading it on the rolls like jam - delicious!

We had so much stinkin' food. The stuff I made along with the stuff Dave's mom made (a duck with stuffing, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, mashed potato and gravy, cranberry jello casserole, and something else I'm forgetting). It always makes me feel glad (and perhaps a bit guilty) that I was born in this country in this time period. Lucky, lucky, lucky - that's me!

Lucky indeed! For I won some Rabbitch yarn a few weeks back and finally received it in the mail. Not her fault, really. There were 12 packages that were in the wrong box! Again, lucky. Lucky that no one else had access to that particular box. (Some of those packages had been there for almost 2 weeks!) I also just won another sock yarn contest and will post pic's of these lucky yarns when I have a bit more time.

I'm pretty well all over the place today. Maybe it's because I'm picking up my mom from the airport at 2:30p today. I'm taking her on a yarn crawl tomorrow and making her buy me some yarn. Oh ha HA!

Wish me luck, Ruth!

Congrats on pulling off a perfect dinner!

Yay for the squash -- I made it and made the same *mistake* Do you think if the onion were minced very finely it might have been okay without sauteing? Whatever. It sure tasted good.

Sounds like a great dinner, unsauteed onion notwithstanding!

I'll post a plug for your swap, but not until, um, Tuesday. You'll see why Monday. :)

Have fun with your mom!
