making stuff

we made some stuff today. Lu and I sewed this cute pillowcase dress out of scraps that were around. The main piece was Jenna's trek skirt, taken apart and sewn up like a pillowcase. The rest of the pieces were just bits of this and that. Lu enjoyed making a puzzle out of the pieces. I think it will look really cute with a brown shirt and tights.

I also made my new favorite beet salad a'la Caroline. So delish! and just so it wasn't too healthy we also had philly cheese steak sandwiches :)
1 raw beet, grated
1 apple, grated
1 carrot, grated
1/2 cup cabbage, finely sliced
2 tbs sunflower seeds (I used candied pecans)
Small handful dried fruit, i.e. currants or cranberries (I used crazins)
2 tsp olive oil
1 tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice or unsweetened orange juice (fresh squeezed orange)
1 tsp honey
Combine beet, apple, carrot, cabbage, sunflower seed, and cranberries. Mix olive oil, lemon, and honey in a separate bowl until well blended. Pour over salad mix and toss

For dessert I made another new fav:pumpkin roll.
I also made lists and notes, lots of great advice and council at conference today.
And the kids made lanyards. The idea was busy hands, quiet mouths...not a screaming success but they did enjoy it.
Tonight S got back from her trip. She had a very fun time.

I'm going to have to try that salad. It looks very good.

Glad you guys enjoyed the salad. Emma said it tasted planty/earthy. :P

Wasn't Conference FABULOUS.

Glad S got home safe and sound and that she had a fun time.
