Sausage and Green Beans

One of my favorite dinners right now is sausage cooked with green beans.  I’ll slice sausages lengthwise, add green beans and some water, and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes (or until the water is gone).  Yum!

To make gluten free, lower glycemic cookies, I used gluten free flour and agave nectar (half of what the recipe says: if the recipe says 1 cup of sugar, use 1/2 cup of agave nectar; also reduce the amount of liquid you use).  I adapted a recipe from The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur Cookbook.

I put the cookies in the freezer so I wouldn’t eat them all at once!

To make chicken quesadillas without gluten (wheat in my case) or dairy, I used corn tortillas, dairy-free cheese, and chicken.

Knitted Baby Bear Hat

I knitted a baby hat with bear ears.  It’s very long and meant to be folded up so that it can fit a child as they grow.  It turned out pretty large.  I know it’s not newborn size!

I used US 13 needles and Bernat Softee Chunky yarn in Dark Taupe (Weight 5).
