Here is the pretty part, another batch of goodies off to local consignment.
The happy part. A friend from church offered me a little box of unfinished patchwork she found among her mother's things. This friend is a quilter, too, but she gave them to me. I now have several of these delicious projects that were given to me that I have no set purpose for, so they keep getting pushed off the list by daily things.

Then there's the real part. There are so many things to choose from!
Here is a new recipe I tried: mashed sweet potatoes molded around marshmallows, rolled in crushed cornflakes, and baked. Lots of butter was involved. Now, I'm not really in the camp of those who love marshmallows with their sweet potatoes, but as I had bought marshmallows for an early fall cookout that got rained out and as this recipe was highly recommended, well, I thought I should try.
The kids loved them (anything + marshmallows = great). My husband and I were tepid; these balls were not more than the sum of their parts. Plus, in trying to get the cornflake coating crispier, I baked the balls longer than the recipe stated, which made the marshmallows puff and pop the encasing potatoes.
