Strawberries, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Did a little strawberry picking this morning! Unforunately the field was pretty picked over so we only got 1 quart. We're hoping next weekend we can get some more. They're a little tart but still so much better than store-bought!


Hope Valley, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Finally finished the top and backing for the Hope Valley Quilt. The top was done, but then there was a hiccup. When I was making the top I ran out of the beige fabric. I went to pick up some more but accidently got a very slightly different color. I didn't notice this until it was sewn together. So I had to go back and get the right color, rip out to two pieces that were wrong, and fix it. Gahh! I've done a lot of seam ripping on this quilt, but I think in the end it will be worth it. I'm pretty happy with the back as well. I'm basting it tonight here at home and than hopefully I'll start quilting it sometime this week. I'm still not sure how I want to quilt it.. :)


A little shopping, originally uploaded by jenib320.
A little shopping today! Found some more of this fat quarter at Walmart and picked up some thread with my coupons! You can never have too much white thread!

The Pyrex Series: Pyrex In Action

I thought it might be time for another Pyrex post around here! Today I want to introduce you to a Flickr Group called Pyrex In Action! It's a group dedicated to photos of Pyrex being used! It is a great place to get inspiration, recipes, or to just drool over all the yummy food and dishes!

I just wanted to share a few of my own Pyrex in Action shots and hopefully inspire you to come join us! :)

Hexagons, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Almost finished making hexagons! I'm started to get tired of making them so I may switch to connecting them for a while. I am loving the color combo.


Sketching, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Received my partner for the Doll Quilt Swap. Started sketching possible quilt ideas! I'm going to be pretty busy this summer with my internship so I know I need to get started right away so that I have plenty of time to make it. I'm going to sleep on my idea but I think I'm pretty excited about it! I also think I may do it double sided, piecing on both sides.

Easy Souffle Recipe

Saturday, June 5, 2010


Souffle, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Easy Souffle

1 package (10 oz) Spinach (thawed & drained)
2 cups Lowfat Cottage Cheese
3 Eggs
3 T Flour
1 t Salt (only add if not adding ham steak)
1 c Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
1 small Onion (chopped)
2 T Butter (melted)
1 small Ham Steak (diced)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. Squeeze excess moisture out of thawed spinach.

3. Saute onions in butter until softened.

4. Mix all ingredients gently and spoon into 1.5 quart casserole

5. Bake for 1 hour, serves six.

Notes
*This recipe can be easily cut in thirds to feed two. It can be baked comfortably in one 502 Pyrex Refrigerator Dish or two 501 Pyrex Refrigerator Dishes.

*I don't like spinach at all and am not fond of onion. The recipe can easily be made without either.
