There's always an excuse to leave the dishes, dusting, scrubbing and especially yard work for later. My favorite excuses are sewing, reading, cooking, and now decorating my new house with custom projects. Getting away from home in our new camper is also a great excuse -- although that's just another house to clean! Here's what's going on with me and my favorite hobbies.

Dinner last night . . .
I made a "chicken" pot pie. I used purchased pie crusts, and sautéed every vegetable I had -- onions, garlic, celery, carrots, broccoli, yellow pepper, and the rest of a bag of frozen mixed vegetables. I thickened it with soy milk and cornstarch, and thinned it with some vegetable stock. I cut up some Morningstar grilled veggie "chicken" patties and put that in. Poured it in a double crust and baked. It was very good.
I also made Ina Garten's Chocolate Sorbet. I thought it was GREAT. Very chocolaty. The rest of my family aren't such chocoholics, so they didn't like it as much. I'm sure my daughter would have liked it -- if she were home to try it.
