I haven’t been working on any big projects (outside of work)…other than talking about how I have no space in our new apartment to do any big projects. Don’t get me wrong, I love our new apartment, I just miss playing with spray paint. I keep checking my budget to see if I can afford to rent some studio space to go wild with paint and whatnot. So far, not so much. NYC space is expensive. :/
Sam has been on a potato skin bender and at $12+ tax, tip & delivery each time, it was getting crazy expensive. I bought a 5 pound bag of potatoes, baked, scraped, and stuffed them with cheese & bacon. All he has to do now is toss one of the 7 containers in the oven.
Total cost? About $8.50 and my bacon is way better than the junk that was being delivered. The easiest way to dig the potatoes out? Grapefruit spoon. Works like a charm!
There was also a fudge incident. It was my first time making fudge and I can see room for improvement (I cut down big marshmallows that were a tad…stale). That said, tasted pretty awesome and the chunks of sea salt are definitely a *do*.
I boxed up a little batch in that berry box and froze it for my Mom. She’s coming to visit soon!
It’s been almost 9 months since I used my sewing machine (!!!!). I quite literally forgot how to put zippers in. I messed around and made 4 little bags. The zippers are rough but the cuteness of the bag makes up for my diminished skill. I’m rusty!
I also zipped up a cute little blue gingham tablecloth for our kitchen.
