Crochet Plant Cozies

Crochet Plant Cozies

That is the plant cozy I crocheted before we left for England. I made two not of the same pattern though. I was inspired by all sorts of cozies I found on, what else but, Pinterest. A lot of the pictures were cute so I decided to give it a try. It is simply covering the generic black pot you find on IKEA fake plants. I have a lot of plants around the house but I have a few fake…

First Attempt at homemade Beefless Beef

First Attempt at homemade Beefless Beef

Alright, so tonight I attempted to make homemade beefless beef. I love the Trader Joe’s brand of it, but I always seem to need it when I’m out.
