Jump Start on the Holidays.......
Then I made up this bag using a fabric from Heather Bailey's new pop garden line. I love how it looks with the chocolate brown cord, I also love the red and aqua together I wanted the red in the zig zag print to pop so I edged the middle stripe in a solid. Also I had to add a flower just for fun!
Here is it with out the flower.
I used the red for the interior as well!
Have a Happy evening! Meg

I received my Ohio State University patches and I made up a
couple of fun "college themed" totes!
I finished my mini purse that I will ship off to be modeled for
an upcoming holiday launch with En.Core on ebay.
And of course I am still playing with my new
Heather Bailey pin cushion pattern. Here I have used my
Garden Party scraps and I just love how the pear turned out.
Also check out the cool hat pins. Which I will use to
Have a super weekend! Meg

Cook it Blog it........
- 5 to 6 cups chicken stock
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter / I used 2 tbs Parkay fat free spray butter
- 1/4 pound chunk pancetta chopped into small dice/I used turkey ham
- 4 cloves garlic,
- chopped 1 pound spaghetti/I used wheat spaghetti
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, cut into a small dice
- 1 fresh bay leaf
- 5 to 6 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 (15-ounce) can Roman beans or small white beans (recommended: Goya brand)
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 cup dry white wine, eyeball it
- 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
- A generous handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
Place the stock in a sauce pot and warm it over medium heat then reduce to simmer.
Heat the extra-virgin olive oil and the butter in a large, deep skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add the pancetta to brown slightly. Next add the garlic and spaghetti and toast the noodles lightly, 3 to 4 minutes. Add onions and carrots, bay and thyme and season with salt and pepper. Soften veggies a bit, 5 minutes. Add wine and allow it to be completely absorbed. Add beans then add a few ladles of stock and stir the pasta. Keep adding stock a few ladles at a time allowing liquids to be mostly absorbed before adding more, as if you were preparing a risotto. When liquids are absorbed and spaghetti is cooked to al dente, 12-15 minutes, stir in cheese. Adjust salt and pepper. Turn off heat and stir another minute. Remove the bay and thyme stems. Serve in shallow bowls and garnish with lots of parsley.
