As the snow fell, and fell, and fell some more today, my sweet Iris had the best idea when she decided to curl up and sleep all afternoon on her favorite little bed, surrounded by her favorite toys.

I wish I could have done the same!

Pork tenderloin

I decided to go out on a limb and try something different this week. The recipe called for a 2-2.5 pound pork tenderloin, but I couldn't find one that size. I ended up buying the 5lb. one and freezing half.

I really struggled with trying to smash it down to size (we don't have a mallet or a rolling pin) with a coffee cup. The filling is spinach, Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. I didn't really like it very much, but my husband likes it. I doubt I'll try this again!

Good times

After work on Friday, I went to Fuji with a couple of girls from work. I like to make my own sushi, but nothing compares to having it made for me!

L-R: Tempura battered spicy tuna roll with a wasabi sauce, calamari topped squid roll, Maine crabmeat roll, and an avacado/cucumber roll. Delish!

This is my first time making hats with an earflap. I think they came out pretty good. I made these for a girl at work who is expecting boy/girl twins within the next week or so.
