Forgot My Oven is O.O.C.

I had taken a big turkey breast out of the freezer and defrosted it. I was looking forward to having a big meal tonight. I forgot my oven is out of commission until Monday when the repairman comes AGAIN, this time with the parts. So I had to use some good ol' Yankee ingenuity down here in Kentucky and figure out how I was going to fix it. So
I plopped it in the electric skillet...

to brown it. Then...

I put it in the crock pot with a little water and seasonings. I got a late start with it so we'll have it tomorrow with some stuffing, veggies and biscuits with honey butter. Yum!

So that's today's damage control. Hope y'all are having a nice weekend. Hugs...

Need to Finish a Few Projects...BUT Really Wanna Make This!

I have a deadline to meet with the afghan I'm currently crocheting. Last night I was dropping stitches left and right and had to do some frogging a few times--once I had to frog FIVE rows! Gee whiz, where was my concentration at? Anyway, I bought myself Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies with a Christmas gift card. There is a very cute pattern in this book for a popcorn scarf. I really, really want to make it for my dil who works in a movie theater. I need to stay focused, I really need to stay focused and get a few other wips and ufos finished before starting a new project. Why do crochet designers make such cute, tempting patterns? ;)
See, it really is a cute scarf

This is the book it is from.
