It has been at least 4 years since I dusted off my knitting needles. I learned how to crochet, and it seems like I had decided not to go back to knitting.
But then Shelley Brander over at Loops Love started a knitting challenge I just couldn’t resist. So now I’m in the process of re-teaching myself how to knit.
This picture shows a hat I cast on to double points. This was not a good place to start!
I have since frogged this. Maybe I’ll teach myself a different method of knitting in the round. Perhaps a method that does not require 3 hands with 16 fingers on each.
Here’s another shot of the project before I abandoned it.
I love the colors of this yarn. If I had more than one skein, I’d crochet some socks!
I went to a card making class this morning. I’m not particularly good at it, but it is strangely satisfying.
When I got home, I promptly took a nap. Upon waking, I felt less than inspired to cook. Lunch consisted of an apple and some almond butter. Supper didn’t hold much promise, either.
I knew I didn’t want to go to the grocery store, so I needed to use what I already had. This is what I came up with...
Meatloaf Onion Bombs
1 pound ground turkey
3/4 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Greek seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 large onion
Sliced cheddar cheese
Brussels sprouts, or any other veggie that tastes good roasted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium size bowl, mix together the first 9 ingredients. Set aside. Cut onion in thick rings. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. I halved Brussels sprouts and tossed them with olive oil and salt, then spread them on the cookie sheet. Any veggie will do. S…
Today’s culinary adventure was brought to you by my obsession with Starbucks Sous vide Egg Bites. I especially like the Bacon/Gruyere flavor.
I’ve seen copycat recipes on Pinterest for a while now, and finally gave in to temptation.
I do not have a sous vide set up. I specifically asked Santa for one this year, but apparently Santa thinks I have enough kitchen gadgets already. What? Too many kitchen gadgets? Did Santa tell Michelangelo he had too many paint brushes? I think not!
Anyhoo, I do have an Instant Pot that I love dearly, and it worked great for this recipe. I have not given up on the sous vide. It will be mine! I don’t need no stinkin’ Santa Claus!
I used this recipe, but instead of her add ins, I used Swiss cheese and bacon. My small town grocery store didn’t have no fancy gruyere cheese. :). I also made a batch with chopped leftover ham from dinner last night.
I now have breakfasts for the whole week- but Santa is getting cereal. ;)
I’ve been doing a little bit of collecting lately. Ever since the events of January 2018, I’ve been doing quite a bit of thinking about what it means to be a citizen. That thought process (and a life in education) has led me to be more active and vocal about issues impacting women. I found this pin on Etsy, and I had to have it. I think it is gorgeous!
