Over the years I loved it to death.
One Christmas she made me a brand new, bigger one. She even gave me matching throw pillows (not homemade) to go with it and make it look like a "set".
That "new" blanket still sits proudly on the back of my couch. Hubby laughs because I pick at it. Without even thinking about it, I pick at all the loops and knots in it.
This is a habit I would like to break as Nana is no longer here to make me a new one. I refuse to put it away though, I want it used, and loved, and snuggled with.
This recipe was in an edition of Good Housekeeping magazine that was handed to me. Love me some mushrooms!
Makes me warm and fuzzy on the inside...as Nana's blanket does on the outside!
** I forgot snow peas at the grocery and just threw in some regular peas I had on hand. Still delish!
