Stuffed Shells And Craftiness

Whoa.  Did anyone else just watch NCIS?  What a GREAT episode!

Wear a Dress Tuesday was cozy today.  Dress, leggings, a scarf I bought when I was in Italy a few years ago and wrist warmers that I knitted a few weeks ago when the cold snap hit.  I like the different shades of red and pink!

My mom invited Bruce and me up for dinner and NCIS tonight.  She made stuffed shells!

When I made stuffed shells a few weeks ago, I focused more on the sauce than the filling.  My mom focused on the filling - she added spinach!

I am definitely going to have to make stuffed shells with spinach sometime.  It adds such a neat flavor.

I paired the meal with a malbec.

I actually wasn't a fan of this one.  It had a weird rubbery taste.  Not that I'm a wine connoisseur or anything, so don't take my word for it!

Dessert was a piece of ice cream cake left over from the superbowl.  My favorite part of these cakes is definitely the crumbly middle - I wonder if I can just get that somewhere?

I'm currently working on a project for church that involves this ...

I'm pretending that I'm crafty, ha.



  1. I like your hand warmers, great idea!

  2. @Kerr - thanks! I'm trying to make a few others right now to sell for a church fundraiser. We'll see how my productivity is and maybe I'll make more!

    @Sarah - I would make you a pair, but ... you live in Florida. :)

    Alexia - please join us next week!

  3. You're looking as cute as always! And that ice cream cake looks so yummy!

  4. I am starting to really look forward to Wear a Dress Tuesdays. I wore a silver belt, navy blue shirt, and khaki skirt today, and was so happy I did...tough situation today, and I loved being dressed up for it:) Isn't it fun how we can trick our minds into different things? And increasing mood by dressing up is definitely one of them:)

  5. LOL about being crafty! You go girl! I LOVE seeing pics of yarn!!!

    That ice cream cake looks so yummy!
