I have also just completed my first block taggie. I found this at Modabakeshop.com!http://www.modabakeshop.com/search?updated-max=2009-09-21T16%3A49%3A00-05%3A00&max-results=12I used one square of minke--also used black and white fabric. Note to self: taggies need to be shorter next time. But it is a fun little project that you can just make out of scraps!!!
So anyway I am so excited the gift is finally ready! I even
have the card ready!! (usually I am too lazy to do a card and just do a quick tag) So it is almost ready to go. Now cross your fingers--lets hope that I have some tissue paper to put in the gift bag!!

The mix and chop!!!
I believe that is its name. I think it was designed to chop your ground meat while browning it in the skillet or crock pot (one of my favorite things). However, I may be way behind the times, but I like to use it when mixing up meatballs or meat loaf. It works very well and keeps your hands out of the meat, eggs and whatever else is in your recipe.
Speaking of recipe I thought I would share my favorite meatball recipe.
- 3 lbs hamburger
- 1-2 cloves garlic (1/2 tsp)
- 1 13 oz evaporated milk
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 c quick oats
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp chili powder
Mix all ingredients together and form into balls. Bake at 350 for about 1 hour. For the last 20 minutes of baking cover them with the following sauce.
- 2 c Ketchup
- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1-2 cloves garlic
This sauce can be made ahead and stored in the fridge. It is great on all sorts of things. Just a note: I like to make the meatballs ahead and freeze them raw. I pull them out frozen and put them in the oven. They are great for when you need a good meal in a hurry.
Hope you all have a really good weekend.

Here we are working hard on our cards. We each brought a card or two for all of us to make. It is a great time working and still having a chance to talk. It also gives the kids . . .
time to play. Yes, that is Ubby with the girls. He is baking a cake. A couple of the kiddos are missing from the picture.
OK here is the finished product. Eight handmade cards ready to send.
Not bad for an afternoon, the kids got to play, the mommy's got to craft and chat--it doesn't get much better than that. Hope you had a good afternoon.
