Remember Me?.. :P

I have been neglecting my blog lately, I know... RL keeps getting in the way. (Real Life)  Sigh...   I don't actually have any pictures to post, either. I have been taking them, but on my (new) phone, and I don't have them on my computer. (Big sigh...) Anyway, here is another angry birds hat, that I don't think I have posted here yet. I crocheted that red one for my nephew (I don't know if I mentioned this already...). Then someone said "Would you sell this?" So I said yes. (She said she would pay me for it, and she was "Sending the check in the mail"..) That was about a month ago. Still don't have that check she "sent out".  But I did crochet another hat for my nephew. (Turned out that the red one was a little small- I tried it on- and probably wouldn't fit a four year old very well.) So I hope this one will fit/he will like it. Angry Birds Black Bird Hat is the pattern I used. I'm thinking I need to make myself a hat. The Grinch Hat. :/

I have been crocheting some of Mimi's Santa Hats. For a friend. I wasn't going to, because even though she said she liked them, I thought "Oh she's probably just saying that..." You know? But they invited us over for Thanksgiving dinner (this is the third or fourth year in a row we've gone over there for Thanksgiving). And she said again that she loved those; and wanted one. Soooo....  :) I am making one for everyone in the family (five hats), because what she originally said, was that she wanted to do a family picture with all of them wearing Santa hats.    What does any of this have to do with a picture of a Santa kitchen towel and hot pad set, you are probably wondering. Lol.  This is what I made for another friend (who usually goes over their house every Thanksgiving, too. But this year they didn't come because they went to their son's wedding in Indiana).  When we invited them all over to our house for Eon & Steves' birthday, she noticed my towel toppers on my stove and said she really liked those and they reminded her of home. I immediately thought, "Chirstmas present!..." Then I tried finding out what color(s) their kitchen is. But when my husband asked her husband at work, he said "I don't know. I just go in there to get food. I don't pay attention." Lol.  So, I figured I would make a Christmas set for her.  I started with the No Sew Towel Topper, and tweaked it a little to make them more like mine.  I need to sew a button on. I bought some, I just haven't gotten around to it yet...

Yesterday, Eon won two awards in the awards assembly at his school. The Honor Roll award, and Student of the Month award. I'm so proud of him!! I had been meaning to make this dessert for a while. I bought some custard cups a week or two ago, to make it.  But hadn't gotten around to it. Well yesterday I thought, "I should make them tonight, since Eon won those awards.."  :)  

They are Lava Cakes.  See the "molten (chocolate) lava" pouring out? :D  They really weren't all that hard. The hardest thing was you have to grease each cup and dust it with baking cocoa powder. They were so yummy. (I really shouldn't have eaten one. But...)  Here is the recipe: Molten Chocolate Cakes Recipe.  They remind me of Hot Fudge Cakes from Big Boy back home in Michigan.. (We had ours with vanilla ice cream-which I also shouldn't have eaten, but I only had a little..)
