In craft news, I have been working really hard on my largest gift. It's tons of small pieces that will require lots of finishing. Luckily it's crochet so at least that part is going quickly. I am just over halfway finished with the pieces. I also laid a whole bunch of tile today. Saffy wasn't happy about it. She has been driving me nuts all day. She has been very nippy and demanding of attention. Tomorrow, I have knitting at my LYS so I will be taking a break from this tedious crochet project and crazy Chihuahua. She's lucky I love her so much!

I've been doing a lot of cooking lately what with the Weight Watchers and all. I have to say I have discovered one of the best inventions EVER! It's the Ziplock Steamer Bag. I can perfectly steam a large portion of fresh veggies in the microwave in approximately 3 minutes. I love steamed veggies, but I always have a tendency to over cook them in my stove-top steamer. This takes all the guesswork out of steaming as it has all the cooking times printed on the side. I highly recommend trying one out!
