What's for dinner?

Well, it's dinnertime.. again. It sure comes around a lot. But with DH out of town (hi, honey!) I don't have quite the same restrictions or requirements to deal with (you know, actual food, for one.) So, this is what I made:

Looks yummy, huh?

And I enjoyed it enough, but was curiously still hungry, (even after eating the napkin too) so I made this one as a chaser:

Now, did I mention that these are actually made of felt and beads? Oh, you thought they were real?? Tee hee! I don't know how that misconception got started! Of course, I ate an entire box of doughnuts in the name of research ( not really, yes I did, no I didn't!)

Actually, I got the idea from this tutorial, which is part of the Handmade Holidays (see November 8th) at Sew, Mama, Sew. As the tutorial points out, these aren't *hard* to make, just time consuming. And if you like lots of sprinkles, like I do, it will take a bit longer.

There's also a tutorial for felt cupcakes, and somewhere else I saw one for felt sushi! A plan is brewing in my alleged brain to stop cooking altogether and just reach into the pantry for a entire meal of felt food. Soup might present a challenge, but think of all the dishes that wouldn't get dirty!

So, whadda think, Honey? Hungry? I have some felt pork chops in my pocket!

Hi Baby, DH here. I thought they were real donuts and I wanted to *eated* them!!! Mom just made me dinner. I think I just ate felt mac & cheese. You talked her into doing this to me didn't you?!

They look real for sure! I was wondering why you got to eat donuts for dinner and I had to actually cook!
