Today was hubby's 55th Birthday. Since he isn't overly fond of cake, I made him a Buttermilk Pie and it was DEVOURED! Lol! I had a photo of the remaining slice but can't get it uploaded right now. Pie recipe from the Garvin County Cookbook:
1 pie crust, uncooked
1 1/2 c sugar
1 c Buttermilk
2 T flour
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/8 t salt
1 t Vanilla
3 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients, pour into unbaked pie shell. Cover edges with foil.
Bake for 40 - 45 minutes. Pie should brown on top. Remove foil for final 5 minutes of baking to brown crust. Remove from oven when pie no longer jiggles. Let cool and set for a couple of hours before serving.

Here is the Crocheted Puppy Hat I made last weekend for my youngest Grandson, Eli. Eli LOVES puppy dogs! He was really excited to get a puppy dog hat!!! His Mom told me that he wore it around all day the next day, saying "my Grandmommy gave me this hat!" : ) I was finished with this pattern in about 2 hours.
I have also been working on making several crocheted ear warmers this week. I found a nice pattern that I really like, and it works up quickly, which for me is essential for instant gratification. I am currently trying to decide between various crocheted flower patterns to make for attaching to the earwarmers.

I worked on a bearded beanie (photo above) last weekend. The pattern is listed on http://imtopsyturvy.com/crochet-striped-beanie-pattern-multiple-sizes/ and http://imtopsyturvy.com/crochet-bobble-beard-pattern-multiple-sizes/ My daughter has been wanting some for herself and the kids so I was experimenting with it. I scared Hubby when he saw me! LOL!
I am also wanting to knit myself an earwarmer soon, pattern can be found here:http://imtopsyturvy.com/knit-ear-warmer-with-crochet-flower/. I'm also getting interested in finding a good plain knitted scarf pattern.
We will see how much I manage to get done. I moved to a different area at work and I work all the time now and don't get home till 6:30 or 7:00 sometimes!
