Eye See You!! Halloween Cookies

Where has the month gone?  Can you believe that Halloween is next week, then in a couple of weeks it will be Thanksgiving.....geez!

Well, this past weekend was my Halloween craft day with my nieces and nephews.  It was a success and I will share some pics on Wednesday. You know for Wordless Wed. or my version - Pictures and Words Wed.   We had a lot of fun. I can tell that now as the kiddos get older they understand more of what they're doing. 

I don't like to waste anything so, last night while cleaning up the kitchen I decided instead of throwing out or freezing the dough (I'll forget about it and end up throwing it out later) I'd go ahead and finish using the cookie dough that was left over.  It was enough to make about 2 dozen cookies.  These are for theHubs and myself. 

Here are my

Halloween Eye-ball cookies

I made a sugar cookie dough using a recipe that used powdered sugar instead of the granulated sugar. YUMMY!

I also made the icing for decorating. 


I was like a kid too!!  How many times can you really make eye-ball cookies during the!!

Everyone have a great year and thank you for stopping by.

I've been sewing and studying!!

I'm back....did you miss me?  Oh, you didn't realize I was gone huh....I kind of!!!  I've been busy with school stuff.  
Well I'm glad you're here now to see what I have to show you. 

I've been working on different ways to sew my bags.  Like one handle instead of two or using batting instead of interfacing, buttons and zippers, pockets or no pockets.  This bag has no pockets, I used batting and is big and squishy and I totally love it!!  

I call it - The Squishy Catch-All tote.
(Sorry for the bad pics, we've had some rain and I could never get any good lighting from the window.)

You can just throw anything in there.

Tasty Tuesday - Easy Cheesy Bread

I'm so happy - Houston has some cooler weather in the forecast.  It makes me even more excited for the Fall/Winter weather.  So I really hope it stays a while.  There's nothing suckier than having a warm Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas!
On to Tasty Tuesday......

This is super easy and quick to make at home with bread slices or left over burger or hot dog buns.  I don't know why we always have buns left over, but we do and I try to use them.  

Sometimes theHubs will ask for some toasty bread to go along with dinner and I'm happy to oblige.  He'll usually ask when we have "said" leftover bread/buns.  Which is great because, the only thing that I hate to do more is walk into the grocery store to buy 1 thing like bread or a oddball list of items like - Drain-O, Jello, and charcoal. Yup, weird stares galore.  Can you say episode of "Snapped", lol!!   Which by the way is our favorite show to watch on Sundays, we're just weird like that!  We have some deep convo's on some of those episodes, lol!  Anyways back to the bread.

1) Set the oven to 400°
2) Prepare bread -
I butter both sides, 
sprinkle with garlic salt,
a little shredded cheese and
dried parsley.
(this stuff can be
put on the 1 top side)
3) Put bread on foiled baking pan (I use the pizza pan)
4) Then pop them into the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes. 
It varies so you might want to keep an eye on it.

Yummy and easy!

Have a great day!
