Ummm... Where has the week gone? A Food And Toys Post

I had a crazy busy week. We had a great 4th of July with fried chicken, cloverleaf rolls, mashed potatotes, and cranberry sauce (I love the kind out of the can!).
I wanted to try and make some rolls from scratch so I came across a recipe that sounded quite amazing, and it was. I use All Recipes alot, they tend to have some pretty amazing recipes on there. I used this one. I decided to use one of the reviewers ideas to make these into cloverleaf rolls. I hadn't heard of these before, but it's really quite simple. You make thirty six balls with the dough the recipe makes, and put three balls in each muffin tin that has 12 muffin places. The turn out huge! But they are so so delicious. Here's the result.

They are so huge you really only want one. It's like eating three rolls.

As you know I sell some of my embroidery pictures on Etsy, and I had a crazy weekend, I sold five in one weekend. My shop goes like that. It will be slow, and then, BAM! Craziness. So needless to say I was an embroidering fool this week. I stayed up till 3 in the morning to get alot done the other night. No worries though, I got to get a nice little paycheck. It made me realize though how much I do love embroidering.

Okay the other day whilst surfing on ebay I came across the Re-ment Donut Shop. Someone had brought a few back from Japan and had one! It was a major impulse buy, but it was a steal. Unopened and only 4 dollars to ship!

Do you see how teeny tiny the chair is on the person's finger! Yeah, it's nuts.
I have really been loving the little buildings that tomytec makes. They sell some really neat one's too. The detail is quite amazing for how small the piece is.

I love anything Kawaii and one of my Flickr friends Grana Padano (with the best toys in the whole world) shared a game that is so so cute. It tests your chopstick skills. And it couldn't be cuter! The kids would love this!

Well I'm off to enjoy doing nothing. I may play a game of "go fish". Have a great weekend!
