I hate being sick! The sun is shining outside for the first time in days and I am stuck at home inside!

One dress down!

I finished the baby dress/jumper! WooHoo! Slightly busted sewing machine aside it went together pretty easily. I forgot to get permission from the model so I figured I would just blur the face that way I could still show off the finished dress.

Successful and...not so much.

I tried a new recipe again today. It's a sneaky granola bar recipe from the book "The Sneaky Chef" and you add good for you frou-frou food into normal food to trick the picky eaters in your family! It worked great in spaghetti! We added zucchini, cauliflower, sweet potatoes and carrots to the normal jar of pasta sauce and I couldn't even taste it! And I am the really picky eater! So I figured I would try another recipe from that book, the granola bars which you add ground up rolled oats (I hate oatmeal, but I know it's good for me so I thought if I could sneak it in...) and you mix in rice krispies, raisins, honey, canola oil...some other stuff that I can't quite remember but am not going to get up and find the book. But anyways, I baked it according to the directions and both times it turned out looking like...brown cat litter. So not what I was going for!

So both batches ended up in the trash. At least I can say I tried!
