I have in the oven right now either a miracle or a disaster. I layered pasta shells (cooked), white beans, Amy’s mushroom soup, green beans, tuna, scallions, and cheddar cheese. It’s either going to taste great or horrible, and I have no idea which way it will go. I love casseroles. I just don’t know how to make them with things lying around in the freezer and cupboard. How do you do it?
While you think about that and while we wait for that to cook (oh, I HOPE it’s good — it has to be dinner all week at work), why don’t I show you a few pics? I’ve been hanging with my godson Dylan quite a bit this week. I just remembered that perhaps it’s my knitterly godmom duty to make him another sweater for Christmas, since he’s almost grown out of the cabled one. I’m broke, so I hied me down to Michaels (gasp) and found some adequate wool (Lion maybe?). Green and brown, soft enough for a baby, anyway. I headed with my goods to the counter. I was buying six balls, so I’d be able to make Mom a scarf/hat set to match, if I have time. I mentally calculated what I thought it might cost on my way to the checkout. Thirty bucks, I figured, for six skeins. I hadn’t actually looked at the price. Then the gal rang me up. $15.25. Dude. For six balls. Why am I so addicted to The Nice Stuff? This cheap stuff doesn’t suck like it used to, huh?
So pics (I almost forgot):
Casserole beeped! It’s done! I’m scared!
