Prompt: May - Verily, is that a Funnel Cloud?
Team: Bits and Bobs
Project Name: Pizza sauce
Project Link: Pizza sauce
Description - made pizza sauce in my quest to go garlic free. Chose the prompt “Verily, is that a Funnel Cloud?” because no matter how careful I am I always end up with red splatters all over my stove when I cook with tomato sauce.

How did it taste? Ooh, I’d miss garlic!

I love garlic a lot. The garlic infused oil helps add in the garlic flavor without the part that causes me distress.

But it’s taking some getting use to to not eat stuff with garlic. It’s in every freaking thing!!!

Brief Description: For the Challenge Chain, I picked @Lynx2Lancer’s Weird Animals. Life intervened and it took way longer than it should have. But Mantis Shrimp have spectacular eyesight (face) and can be colored a vibrant blue .

I love these! Thanks for swapping them! I have to apologize to you, though, as I mis-named one. It’s rose- breasted, not rosy- throated grosbeak. Totally my mistake!! (Pretty sure I wrote it wrong on my posts, too!) The more we know, amiright?

Project Name: Felt Black Cat
Project Link: Dahlia the cat
Brief Description: I love making these felt little creatures. This one is based on my real cat Dahlia. I didn’t realize that the black felt would absorb so much light. She’s still cute. I had to make up the pattern for her shoes and dress.

Project Name: pizzas
Project Link:
Brief Description: I made pizzas last week for dinner. My BIL (@QueenHobo’s husband) made the dough and put the pizza in and out of the oven for me (I’m afraid of the oven… I tend to burn myself), but I constructed each pizza. We got a round of mmmmmmm’s, some nommy’s from Grumpy Frog (the highest praise she gives), and in fact I never even got a pic or a slice of the pepperoni and olive pizza, which was devoured in about two minutes. So it was good, like Jedi.

I made a pepperoni and black olive, a four cheese with olives on half, a Hawaiian, a bbq chicken pizza, and my calzone. Mmmmmm

Brief Description: I made this spice cake, which was unexpected, because the recipe was for cake mix brownies. The cake itself is a success, just not very brownie-like save for a strip in the middle.

Project Name: Sweet Potato Taco Pasta
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: I made this for dinner the other night. It was useful for satisfying both my hunger and the vision I had for it. (Ideally, the sweet potato/corn/bean mix would have been a taco filling, but I didn’t have anything resembling a taco shell, so I settled for mixing it w/leftover pasta.)

I bet that taco mix was great with the pasta! And the spice cake looks delicious. I love to top mine with peaches and whipped cream! :yum:

Cute lil birdie! The crocheted clouds are just right!
