Christmas Gifts and Crab

Category: Christmas – Mommy Rimes – 3:37 pm

So, I’ve been feverishly knitting, sewing, crafting, and cooking for the holidays. I’ve come up with yet another very cute little knit item that takes roughly 2 hours of knitting to finish up.  I’m not going to tell you what it is, because my mom reads this site and she’s TOTALLY getting one.  But I will tell you, they are Cute with a capital C.  And terribly funny.

Mom-the horse people will love this one.

In other news, the Quilt along is going well.  I’ve finished the 3rd block, but no pictures yet.  Sorry.

As for Christmas goodies, the caramel corn is so far my favorite.  But I’m also wanting to try some freezer cookies.  That way I can make it up now and cook them up later when I’m terribly busy.

I also made some yummy crab Alfredo last night.  Really good.

I melted 1/4 cup of butter in a skillet with some garlic.  Then added crab flakes, 1 cup of heavy cream/milk (the recipe called for half and half, but I didn’t have any), and some pepper. Then once that bubbled up and got thicker, I poured it over some noodles.

As my husband said, “this is great, I can’t believe you just threw this all together.”

I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to impress but has only 20 minutes of prep time.  I don’t even think it took me that long.

I just realized this is a slightly disjointed post, but oh well.  That’s the way it goes.
