The time has come for me to part ways with the space I've been leasing at a shop in Bowling Green. I was selling my items there, but was not making enough profit to justify the rent and gas it cost me to take my items up there to sell. I will miss having space there, and it was a really neat little shop. I wish the owner the best of luck in her future endeavors.
It got cold again! Boooooo.
Lasagna & Chocolate CupcakesWe haven't had much luck with the Weight Watchers recipes we've been trying lately. That all changed tonight when I tweaked a Weight Watchers recipe for lasagna! This is a great and easy recipe, although a bit time consuming. For lasagna, though, isn't it worth the time and effort?? I haven't really ever made a real lasagna that I can remember, so for a first try, I was pretty happy with the result. You need all of the basic ingredients, but I added ground beef and cheated by using our favorite store-bought pasta sauce. Using fresh chopped parsley gave the lasagna a good, but not overpowering, herb flavor. After my recipe doctoring, one serving (1/6 of the pan) was 9 points +, and a quarter of the pan was 13 points +. Not bad! And it could be a little lower if you use a leaner beef.

Here's a treat that I made earlier this week. I know, chocolate cupcakes on a diet? Well, these eliminate the calorie-laden oil and eggs. Simply mix a 15 oz. can of pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix) and 1/4 cup of water with the cake mix of your choice.
Sewing Project on the Radar
I came across an idea on Pinterest for a simple summer dress. If I can get around to making it soon, I'll post pictures and directions on here. Should be cute!
There are a few things on the horizon in my life right now. Whether any of them will come to fruition, I can't say, but I'm hoping that a new season of my life will be starting soon. However, I have no control over any of it, and I'm well aware of it. But nothing stays the same forever: "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:...a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak" (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 6-7). Life is unpredictable; thank God that He is the constant!
