Sunday Lovely Sunday

Whew! I just love Sundays, they are usually very quiet days around here. Today is Matt's last day working his second job - finally! I can't wait to have him around for the entire weekened... every weekend. Yesterday we stayed home and made some deeeeeelish food, including this:





It's stir fry, and home made egg rolls! Home made egg rolls you say? Yep! And they're super easy... all I do is shred up some carrot, onions, cabbage, and mix it in a bowl with some cooked vermicelli. I add spices like garlic, salt and pepper, chilis, and some rice wine vinnegar. Sometimes I add ground or shredded pork as well. The wraps are just the pre-made eggroll wraps you can find at the grocery store. I fry them in a big wok using sesame oil. They're super tasty, cheap, and easy! A batch of 15 ends up costing me under $5. A great party snack... try it sometime :)

So far today I've managed to make a few crafts, too! A couple cards, and more dotty gingerbread man ornaments:





These will be up in the shop soon! I have decided to start working on Valentine's stuff since I've pretty much missed the boat now for Christmas.... and I looooooooove pink so I might as well, right? ;) Are you going to send or give out valentines this year? I think that I probably will, being a card maker and all. I did say that about Christmas though, and I don't think it'll happen this year.

And now onto today's gift guide!

Those eggrolls look good. I make my own eggrolls sometimes but they never look that good.
