Better Breakfast Week 3

Here's the thing ... Breakfast can be anything from leftovers to Scramble Eggs & toast. There are things you can make ahead of time and freeze or go to a grocery store and pick something up. Most of the time I prefer not to buy food but to make it. I have a limited income so must make everything count.One of my favourite breakfast foods is egg muffins, like a quiche but smaller they are easy to make and you can add meat  & vegetables to them if you want to.Best of all they are fully freezable so though you make a dozen you don't need to eat them all in a couple of days. How to Make Egg MuffinsChop and sauté the veggies.Stir in the spices.Add the spinach and cook until all the juices have been released.Whisk eggs and cottage cheese.Mix the veggies into the egg cheese mixture and add cheese.Transfer to muffin tins or baking dish.Bake and enjoy!Check out the link above for more information & the directions.

Saturday- Autumn Equinox

Equal day & night before the nights begin to darken at 4 PM. A Pagan celebration to thank the sun and prepare for the cold to come.This year it is on the 22 of September. I am not sure how I will be celebrating it but I suspect it will be low key like always as I rest and prepare for the 2nd week of October and all the birthdays during that week plus a dinner party to celebrate my 60th year.The first thing I will be doing is changing the hanger on my door to the autumn one. Beyond that, I have no clue.
There are many crafts that you can do to bring autumn into your home but the celebration itself ...

Sewing Month Week 2

So I am going to assume you have fabric and scissors at least.The first thing you need to do is choose two or three colours that go well together. For the January block I chose two blues: a navy and a light blue. This is simple to sew by hand if you wish to start with a simple patternThe size of the centre block will depend on how big you want your block. I started with three squares 3 inches by 3 inches. One in the dark fabric and two in the light fabric.
Cut the two light coloured squares in half and set aside for now.
You will need two more squares in the dark colour, these should be around 4.5 inches in size. You need to cut these in half as well.
Once you have the blocks listed you are done for this week: 1x 3" square in the dark material 2x 3" squares in the light material 2x 4.5" squares in the dark material
Cut the 2 x light colour in half Cut the 2 x dark colour in half
Put aside. Next week you will need a needle and some thread.
