Episode 37 It’s 2012 Baby

SO…Happy New Year everyone.

I can’t believe how fast 2011 passed. Lets recap the past week.

Congrats to Aprilshowers for being the winner of the SAL: Look at her Beautiful quilt~

Also Congrats to Jasmin of the KNITMORE GIRLS podcast

Stick & Strings:

Working on my Leaflet , I am about 50% done at this point and I am enjoying the knitting

Here is a bad photo of my progress from about two days ago

The 2nd thing I cast on was my Mystery Socks from The Knitter’s brewing Company. There is a KAL if you are interested. I am not including a photo because I don’t want to spoil the surprise for everyone:

I also wanted to include a Photo of Gerry’s Hat

Amanda and I have been talking about casting on the GAP-tastic Cowl. At this point I need to purchase the needles for it or at least swatch to see if the US 15 I have will work with the yarn I have. I figure this will be a quick knit and I can use it as my at work project.

Next weekend I am taking a handpainting yarn class I am very exciting about this. I am taking the class at Purple Fleece. I have gotten 2 skeins of yarn from All for the Love of Yarn. And plan on getting at least 2 more skeins to do a total of 4 during the class. I will probably get them right from Deb at the Purple Fleece.

Food For Thought:

Baked Stuffed Chicken Breasts With Stuffing:

Stuffed chicken breast with Stove Top chicken stuffing and homemade chicken gravy with seasonings.
  • 3 chicken boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 servings Stove Top Chicken Stuffing
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter-semi melted
  • 1 cup lower sodium chicken broth
  • fresh black pepper to taste
  • 1 can of chicken gravy


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Trim fat and wash chicken. Pound chicken to 1/2 inch thickness between wax paper.
  3. Prepare Stove Top Chicken according to package directions.
  4. In a small bowl combine sea-salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  5. Sprinkle both sides of chicken breasts with mixture and rub it in.
  6. Add semi melted butter to the center of each chicken breast and stuffing to the center of each chicken breast and roll up.
  7. Place a toothpick or small skewer in to secure stuffing from falling out.
  8. In a glass baking dish add lower sodium chicken broth and sprinkle with fresh black pepper. Bake 30 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven, pour gravy over and bake an additional 10-15 minutes.

In Conclusion: Next week is my podiversary and to kick of the 2nd year of Happycrafter207 we will start a KAL. I am working on a list of possible projects and I will be posting a POLL on the Ravelry Group so pop in and give your Opinion (Keep in mind how much I like to give away prizes!!)
