Oh Bring Us a Figgy Puddin' Hat

This was a Wendy Winter Beret for a custom order in the color of Fig =D

One of my customers who purchased a Bella Swan hat is an amazing ceramicist. I've already added a few of her pieces to my Xmas wish list. She sent me this photo of how she embellished her Bella hat with some ceramic buttons! How neat is that??

Over the weekend I went to this store called Dream Dinners as suggested by my friend Lani. It was such a neat experience, I have to share it with you all! So, I arrive at the store and they have a little drawer with my name on it with my planned menu (items I chose online) and an apron for me to wear. They had a shelf in the freezer with my name on it too so that as I prepared my meals I could store them there. Everyone was super friendly and they brought me tea, a bagel, and appetizers! As I enjoyed my yummy snacks I was able to prepare some quick meals to eat throughout the month. All the ingredients were fresh and already chopped, peeled, diced etc. All I had to do was follow the recipe and put the meals in ziploc freezer bags and/or aluminum cooking trays. Each prepared meal came with cooking instructions and the prepared date along with the suggested shelf time. Everything is portioned and the nutrition facts are given for each meal, how easy is that?! When I got home I just had to freeze it all and they're ready to go for quick meals during the week! It was great because I didn't have to worry about finding recipes or forgetting an ingredient. The best part? Not having to clean up my mess! The first Dream Dinner we ate was the bruschetta chicken skewers- yum. This morning we made the breakfast bread pudding! A 9x9 tray is supposed to be 3 servings, but there was so much of it, it will feed us for a few days! It was delicious, especially for a low calorie bread pudding!

Tonight we are having the cheese ravioli with chicken and a creamy pesto sauce.


  1. Thanks for having entered the Christmas Giveaway and good luck to you!
    Have a nice day,

  2. I've heard of that Dream Dinners place before. I'd love to spend a couple hours on a Saturday to go there and make our dinners for the month. The closest one to use is 25 miles away. Phooey! It all looks do delicious!

    I just made one of those berets to give away as a Christmas gift and now I don't want to, haha. They are sooooo comfortable!

  3. OMG that looks so good! I totally thought I put bread pudding on my menu but I didn't. (sad face) I'm happy you are enjoying it as much as I do! There's something so relaxing about walking around and handling food. I don't know what it is. We should schedule our next appointment together. I'd love to meet your Mama and MIL!
