Reverb 10: Day 6

Today's Reverb 10 prompt:

December 6 – Make.
What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

Technically, the very last thing I made was barbecue chicken pizza last Thursday. I know that most people wouldn't consider dinner something I made, but my kids would. You see, we usually eat out of cans and boxes, so if I put anything on the table that even resembles a from-scratch meal my kids rejoice! Last week, I cooked three times:

--chicken and dumplings, using broth made from bouillon powder and dumplings made from Bisquick;
--barbecue chicken pizza, using a ready-made whole wheat crust and bottled BBQ sauce
--lentil and ham soup, using a bag of lentils that came with a packet of garlic herb seasoning and the ham bone from our Thanksgiving ham.

These meals are what some would call "semi-homemade" but they made us happy.

As for something I made that is a little more lasting, I crocheted a headband to tame my Afro.

I tend to make small items because I can't seem to finish bigger ones. However, I am still working on my December charity project, so that is what I am trying to make time for. If only I could pull my fingers away from the keyboard long enough to knit!
