The Classified Chic
I thought I start off the month with a contour kit review. I had been eyeing a few contour kits lately, as they are all the rage.

Easter Egg Placemat Tutorial
Leaves & Stitches
I finished the Easter Egg placemats last weekend and I LOVE how they turned out. They were fairly easy to make so I’m sharing the patterns I used and a quick tutorial.

Several weeks ago I found myself with an abundance of potatoes and realized there was no way RancherMan & I could eat them all before they went bad. I went into high-gear preservation mode & dehydrated many of them, but some of them went into the freezer. When I freeze potatoes I cook and mash them but add nothing else – no salt, pepper, milk or butter – just cooked mashed potatoes. I section them in sandwich bags into serving sizes & freeze them into individual bricks. To use them I’ll pull a brick of frozen mashed potatoes out of the freezer the night before and allow it to thaw in the refrigerator overnight. (The thawed mashed potatoes usually release quite a bit of water and that potato water is not wasted but poured into my weekly endless soup pot.)
