C&C - Crafts and Cooking

Monday, October 08, 2012

Last weekend, I finally had some time for R&R and C&C – crafting and cooking!

Here are some of the goodies that I made!

First up, from the kitchen, I made this delicious Zucchini Lasagna recipe from Skinny Taste. You replace pasta with Zucchini. I actually didn't buy enough shredded cheese and it was still delicious (and even tasty the next day for lunch)!

The hubs and I paired this with some Blue Moon Pumpkin Beer and then for dessert…Pumpkin Cookies with Maple Icing. These things were AWESOME. I omitted the raisins. 

While the food was cooking, I made two crafts.

First up I spotted these mini cornhole boards at the craft store (Pat Catans for you locals) and thought – these would be PERFECT for an upcoming tailgate – either on the ground or on the table because the regular boards are a bit large for transporting. I personalized mine with a flying WV and an outline of the state ; )

Next, I had the urge to make some festive bunting. This is a super cost-effective craft – the felt was four pieces for $1 and the fabric was under $5. I still need to glue it to some ribbon, but in the end, you can make this for likely under $10.

Finally, one craft you won’t see yet was an unsuccessful first attempt at my Halloween costume. That part is To Be Continued…
