ALittleXtraSomething has definitely put her own creative twist on her "Beverage Cozies." These are not only handmade in adorable prints ranging from sports teams to seasons but they are adjustable. Use them on a hot or cold beverage...even a WINE GLASS :)! These are eco-friendly, very affordable, and can be made custom to suit your fancy.
Are you warming up to the idea of a steaming hot (maybe cold if you're warm blooded), frothy (or not!), sweet (atleast I prefer), cup o' _________??? I don't know...you fill in the blank with your favorite and don't forget the cozy .

Well with a serious crash crochet course, we were able to knock out nine of these beauties (between the two of us) over the course of 2 evenings! We looked like two ole "bitties" sitting on the couch, watching football, sharing a pattern sheet (God forbid we make an extra copy), matching crochet hooks in hand, eating lemon squares between rows (often times losing track). Good times, great laughs!
This is one of those projects that you just can't quit looking at once it is complete...just giddy inside with excitement and satisfaction.
TIP: Tie the handles together with a cute ribbon and pick up a box of AWAKE Tazo tea for a great holiday or anytime gift.

Jennifer's Minestrone Soup
1 T. olive oil
2 celery stalks (including leaves)
1 yellow onion
S and P (to taste)
2 t. italian seasoning
1 can of black beans (drained)
1 can of tomato paste
1 c. spaghetti sauce (she used Prego)
Chop all of the vegetables (including celery leaves). Heat some olive oil in a dutch oven and saute the vegetables for about 3 minutes. Add spaghetti sauce, tomato paste, italian seasoning, black beans, and chicken stock. Simmer for about 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Finally, bring "sauce" to a boil and pour in the pasta (uncooked).
This masterpiece will be ready to devour in about 10 minutes. Is your mouth watering, yet? If it's not now, it will be while you are cooking it (or in my case watching her cook it)!
We finished off this delicious soup with yummy, tart lemon bars and a cappucino...a meal truly fit for two best friends :).
