Rag Quilts

The rag quilt is so cute, so cuddly, so fun!  I would not use the word easy.  I have never quilted anything before and have no idea how to cut with a rotary cutter or how to use the little board to make the squares perfect.  I need a lot of help in this area.  This took me a really long time!  I am sure this could be sped up quite a bit with some knowledge of how to use these tools.  Once the squares are cut the rest is easy, but not quick.  I followed the directions from the Green Apple Orchard blog.  The directions were easy to follow.  I made it just like the directions said too, which is unusual.  :O)

Leftover Pizza Buns

Here is an idea for leftover hamburger or hot dog buns.....

Hot dog bun pizza!  Tomato paste, garlic salt, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.  Bake at 425 degrees until crisp.  Broil for a second or two if you like it even crispier!

The boy folded his and ate it like a sandwich!

Whipped Butter Update

Whipped butter is a hit!  It really stretches the butter.  One batch lasted one week. (This includes about 1/2 a cup of whipped butter that was dropped on the floor!) In one week we would normally use 6 to 8 sticks of butter for our spreading needs.  We used our whipped butter for toast, rolls, veggies, rice...pretty much anything at the table we would normally spread butter on.  Make some whipped butter today!
