Coffee Time Food

I can't believe I haven't posted in two weeks. Oh wait, yes I can. DH and I have been invited to a Black Tie Optional wedding next month. I have a long gown to wear, but wanted a shawl to wear over it. I ordered two balls of hand painted yarn from NH Knitting Mama and started this shawl for me. Needless to say the shawl has been occupying all of free time. The pattern is fun, but also a little tedious. The repeat is nine rows and it will take 22 repeats to make the shawl. I'm up to repeat #8 and I have a little less than three weeks to finish it.
I'm not starving even though I'm busy. I made Salisbury Steaks in French Onion Sauce from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice. This was one yummy dinner. I used sourdough bread for the cheese toasts and found a treat better than garlic bread. I made the cheese toasts the following night to have with our spaghetti.
I'm wondering what you eat when you busy sewing. When I was in my sewing room I didn't want to stop to make a meal. Instead I whipped up a banana smoothie and bag of trail mix with a few pretzel M&Ms thrown in. It was the perfect snack to keep me going through the afternoon at the sewing machine.
Mr E is growing bigger and smarter every day. When he was here on Tuesday he discovered he can almost get up on the love seat. In fact, it's become our "cuddle spot." I sat on the love seat all afternoon and he discovered he can climb up, sit next to me, cuddle for a while and get down when he wants to play. When mommy came home I told her about it and they enjoyed some cuddle time too.
If you've made it this far, I wonder if you are interested in a Christmas/Winter Tote Bag swap. If so, stay tuned, I'll be announcing one in a day or two.
