No pics today

I am up and not sure where the day is going to take me. I think it is suppose to rain all day.

I got myself in gear and did some stitching. I set up the other machine I have been doing machine quilting on and did some machine quilting on a 9-patch with a star block that was started when my Mother was sick.

I have about a third of it quilted.
I have a TV in that room so I can go in there and watch a show when my husband watches something else in the living room.

I tried to get some other things done, but I was dragging my feet. I did do grocery shopping. For Christmas Eve we are going to have homemade pizza, Cheesy garlic bread and a dish I call pasta crock. It is a macaroni or what ever kind of pasta you like. Spaghetti sauce, sausage or hamburger, and also mozzarella cheese. You cook the pasta of choice and add the browned meat, add the sauce and mix together. I place that into a greased or sprayed 9 X 13 pan. Then I place the cheese over top and place uncovered into a 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes until the cheese is melted and starting to turn brown. Serve it will Italian bread. Even good as leftovers.

With this recipe you can change the pasta shapes as you like. I have used penne, macaroni and also medium shells.One time I had only parts of three different kinds of pasta so I mixed them. It is your dish.

The other thing I was requested to make was a white or vanilla Texas sheet cake. It is easy to make and it will be a dessert I can make the day before.

I make my own pizza crust and Italian bread from a recipe I have had for several years. I also promised my daughter-in-law homemade cinnamon rolls for  Christmas Morning. She wants to learn how to bake,but I will do this for her. She is so busy with all the kids she hasn't had time to come and learn.

Well have a great day. Chris
