My book of the month….

Foody Friday, and Mario Blanket up date.

Lots to cover in this post and I only have a few minutes to write it… yikes!

Lets start with the Mario Blanket update…. I have finally finished all the squares for my fiance’s Christmas present. Click the link above to see progress if you haven’t been following along. Over the next few weeks I will be sewing the loose squares together. oh joy!

Tonight is date night so I am making bread bowls and potato soup ( see yesterdays post ). It is my first time making either so wish me luck! I will post all pictures this weekend.

My book of the month is a book I didnt know was written up until last week. I love Bridget Jones. I read the first 2 books, then watched the movies. ❀ Β I was cutting through an aisle last week at Stop N Shop and noticed the 3rd installment of my favorite book series! Bridget Jones- Mad About the Boy. It takes place 14 years after landing Mark Darcy. I don’t want to give anything away to possible fans who read this post. I am not that far in but its funny and confusing… no mention of Mark yet. Just the kids and a boy toy. Maybe I’ll do a book review when I am dome reading. But for now I have to start dinner. Jon is very impatient . πŸ™‚

Cooking with Erin

Its time to go food shopping !!

A chore I dread every Thursday.

Whats on the list? The usual… meats, lettuce , bananas, lunch meats, milk, eggs, tp, pt, noodles, veggies…. but this Friday I want to make bread bowls and soup for my fiance’s and my at home date night . I just need some dry yeast and cornmeal, I have everything else.

This will be my first time making bread bowls… any kind bread actually. I’m excited !!! I love cooking.

This is just in time for Foody Friday which I want to get more into. Β I usually don’t take pictures of the food I prepare because of bad lighting in my itty bitty kitchen. I started a blog on blogger last year about my food adventures but like I said before I don’t take many pictures of my food. The Simple Foody blog is just a few recipes.

I am hoping for great sales since I have not gotten into the coupon craze yet. I know I should. My shopping trip is a bit simpler that Stop and Shop has one of those scanner thingies that card members can carry to scan their items and place in the bags themselves and checking out at the self checkout instead of waiting in line. But even those can be a pain in the a$$.

With my 10 resuable bags in hand I am ready to go…… in 1 hour..hehe
