I continue to work my way through the supplies I have on hand and finished this simple blanket this afternoon.
Nina sort of started this blanket several years ago when she needed a blanket to sit on at football games. She found this fabric and matched up the 2 pieces but that is as far as she got. This length of denim and striped corduroy have been folded together ever since.
So, today, I straightened up the edges and made them both the same size, then just sewed around the edge with the fabric wrong sides together. I also sewed along 3 of the stripes lengthwise to keep the 2 layers together. Then I clipped around the edges so it would fringe when washed.
This will be a useful blanket to take to football games or to keep in the car - but I have a hunch that of my kiddos will claim it.
Chicken Rice Pilaf is baking in the oven for our supper tonight. It is a very cold day so the oven is cooking our meal and helping heat our house.
Most casseroles are baked with a cover on them. I like to use aluminum foil but it recently dawned on me that using a casserole dish that has a lid is much more economical and greener than using foil that just gets thrown away every time.
I have 3 covered casserole dishes, this big one and 2 small vintage Pyrex ones. Garage sale season will be starting soon and a medium sized covered casserole dish is on my garage sale want list.
Chicken Rice Pilaf is one of my daughter's favorites meals. She posted about it recently on her blog. I used carrots, celery and onions in mine and hen that was leftover from a meal last week.
I learned to how to make "fried cabbage" from Mrs. Edith Connor, who was one of my home economics teachers in high school. I took home economics all 4 years of high school and also took a summer school class of home economics, just for fun.
Fried cabbage is one of my husband's favorites vegetables. Nina and John like it too but Bobby and Jimmy won't touch it.
Cabbage will be very cheap in the next few weeks with St. Patrick's Day specials and I will buy several heads. Stored in a plastic bag or container, cabbage will keep for weeks in the fridge.
Mrs. Connors Fried Cabbage
1 small or 1/2 large cabbage, chopped to bite size pieces
2 T butter
1/2 cup onion, chopped
salt and pepper
1 T sugar
Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium. Saute the onion just until it starts to turn translucent. Add the cabbage and stir. You might want to turn up the heat to medium high. Cover the pan. Stir after 2 minutes. Cook about 2-3 more minutes and then stir again. The cabbage should just start to brown in spots and be limp. Sprinkle with sugar and put the lid back on and take off the heat.
I promise it won't stink like cabbage cooked for hours does and hopefully your family members that have open-minds toward vegetables will like it as much as we do.
Saturday supper - roast beef with gravy, potatoes, carrots and fried cabbage. This was my plate, I prefer bigger helpings of vegetables but I am pretty sure the men at my table had bigger servings of meat than I did.
