for Brazey: another knit stuffie finished

I hope Evan's shark doesn't eat it.

Made from thrifted textured yarn with a slight pink tinge.

I took more time finishing this one, unraveling the ladderstitch a couple of times until I got it right. I'm much happier with the results.

She/he is adorable. I love the big eyes. Do you watch Martha? I never really cared for pre prison Martha but I enjoy post prison Martha. Last night she was making stuffies with gloves and socks. It was cool.

We hit Shop for a Cause first, where the boys found nothing and subsequently sulked.

Next we pulled into the Humane Society Thrift Store, which I haven't visited in a long time. Historically I haven't found anything there.

Today we hit the treasure jackpot.

A $2 Ziploc bag containing the comprehensive plastic presidential contingent from Washington through Eisenhower.

Of course E had them ordered in a matter of moments.

Finally we escaped the store with a trove of treasures (more than I've found in one place in …

You cook the crust first, at 425 or 450. I used a bag of Trader Joe's grilled cauliflower riced in the Cuisinart with a bag of Trader Joe's shredded mozzarella and as many eggs as needed to hold it together. Herbed it with some dried basil, garlic powder, and dried oregano.

Topped with a pound of browned hot Italian sausage and some shredded parmesan.

Bake til browned.

Scarfed it down, me and my hunny.
