What a nice weekend.

I finally got my giftcard in the mail to Barnes & Noble on Friday... $50!!! I rarely spend the money on books I really want, so this was a splurge event for me!

I got three cooking books, an organization book, a knitting magazine..... And I'm in heaven!

I found this great book... 500 3-Ingredient Recipes and I love it! Mind, you there are "freebies" in the recipes- Like, water, flour, sugar are not counted in the recipes, among a few other things. Still, all the recipes are simple and easy. I made homemade granola, for God's sake... How sweet is that!

I was browsing through the knitting magazine and found an awesome artible on invisible cast-ons and bind-offs... I was hesitant to believe that they actually looked like the pics... But, seriously. It's amazing how nice the edges look. I'll link to the magazine when I can remember the name! I forget!

Anyway, it was my dad's birthday on the 11th and we celebrated on the 13th. FOOD! My sister made this mac'n'cheese... Oh. My. God. It was so good. It's the only kind I'll ever make ever again. Ever. Four Cheese Macaroni from AllRecipes- We did add more cheddar. I know that seems crazy when you read the recipe, but my family likes it cheesy.

Sunday was my day of rest... yay. Though I did get some knitting/crochet done... and read A LOT!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. Food, family and books... sounds like a great weekend!

  2. That book sounds great! I'm going to check it out. I LOVE homemade granola...

  3. I wanted to add this and I forgot, but now that I'm planning on making them tonight, I'll just say this: Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting.
