Our new traveling monster

Hi everyone. Meet Mitzy :) She is our Traveling monster this year for the Danger Craft Group on Ravelry. I originally made Kitty Sparkles to go but she wouldn't be comfortable in the box and no way could I fit a journal in there with her. So they decided to be best friends instead and Kitty will help Bug and Monkey to keep track of all that is happening with Mitzy :0)

Fried Dandelions :)

I was driving home from picking up Bug at preschool and I happened to see a dandelion field. It got me to remembering my grandma's fried dandelions. They were so yummy and I always got to pick the flowers for her. I decided today would be the perfect day to introduce Bug to this tradition :) I gave her a basket and sent her out in our back yard to pick the flowers :) We pick just the head of the flower (we pick about 30 flowers), rinse them, dip in egg, then cover in Bisquick (you can use flour but I think the bisquick is MUCH better) then fry in oil till brown on both sides.

The end result :) Happy memories made and reminders of the passed and how much Gram is missed!
