St. Patrick's Day Sandwich

Now, I'm not the first to come up with this idea of coleslaw on a sandwich, but here's my take on it.

Take a handful or two of a packaged, already shredded cabbage/coleslaw blend and mix it with Marchetti's coleslaw dressing. You want all the cabbage to be coated, but not swimming in dressing. Use sparingly. Now set that aside.

Flip on the broiler and lightly toast one side of two pieces of whole wheat or rye bread. (of course, you'll need more for multiple sandwiches. Lol!) Take them out and and flip them over. Now add several slices of corned beef, topping on side with a slice of provolone cheese. Broil until the cheese melts.

Flip the corned beef from one side on top of the other side. Spread Russian dressing on the bare toast. (To make Russian dressing, mix equal parts mayo and ketchup.) Now add coleslaw, assemble your sandwich and you're good to go. :-)

Prince Harry

 Last year, just before one of the most famous weddings of all time, Fiona Globe released a book of knitting patterns called "Knit Your Own Royal Wedding." I LOVE the idea of this book, but I can't knit. Which was problematic, because I really, really wanted a Prince Harry doll. So, I made up my own pattern.

He still needs boots. He was going to have facial features, but I'm afraid of messing him up. He will have a suit someday, but we'll work on the boots first.

Words as Art

I love this beautiful quote from Brian Andreas. This is a shortened version of it; the full quote is: 

“I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.”

Princess Dresses, everyday!

 My daughter has her own unique fashion sense. Strappy sandals with a pretty pink skirt, a crispy shirt, and topped off with a Toothless the dragon hat. Purple tutu skirts and viking hats. Cinderella dresses to the grocery store. But why not? This won't last forever...

LalaLoopsy Scarves

It's easy to forget that it's still winter in other parts of the U.S when it's 86 degrees on the first weekend in March. You'd think these hats and scarves would remind me!

I love this little whale!
