1) I guess the toy sewing machine is really just a toy. (If you know better, please let me know, how to use it!) It doesn't have any bottom thread attachments in it. But eventually it's good for theatre or music or just to look at.
2) I made kale chips. They taste pretty good and are done in a minute.
3) The oatmeal raisin cookies from my favourite cookbook did convince my omni family-in-law. Well, why shouldn't they. There hasn't been even one disappointing recipe in this fabulous book.
