I know it has only been a week since I blogged last, but it feels like a long time. After a busy week, this week is a mellow one – *fist pump* yay!
Mahalo for sharing your foodie preferences and table hits. It’s fun to read what makes your taste buds happy. I love how food is another bond we have.
Speaking of which, I just realized today that my Hulu queue was showing a new season of Master Junior Chef. Have you watched this before? I am always blown away by these 8-13 year olds who know how to cook from scratch and off the top of their cute heads. I like seeing the tough Gordon Ramsey gently talking to frustrated or hurt contestants. You can even see sometimes the judges being emotionally affected when they have to send disappointed, teary kids home.
To extend the subject of food further, I wanted to mention that I made this recipe last night. My mum passed down her barely used, slow cooker. I was missing mine as its ceramic insert was cracked by yours truly. I forgot to wait for it to cool down before filling it with water. Anywho, this recipe is easy to follow and worth each step. My keiki were lickin’ their digits and the little one was demanding more. I didn’t take a photo for the blog today, but will the next time I whip it up.
Onto quick, fiber news…
This gift has been sitting in my fiber drawer since November. I keep forgetting to give it a soak and to wet-block it. Every time I see the first grade teacher in the morning, I remember but then get distracted by something else. So today, this wahine took care of business:
I have the perimeter of Coastal – Purl Soho’s Structured Alpaca Cowl – pinned down as well as its bottom, ribbed straightedge (not shown) that will lie against Mrs. L’s neck. That bump you see is the front, stockinette edge that will be under her chin. Would you believe I just realized I have this project pinned face side down – *sighs & smacks forehead* doh!
The Eucalan soak relaxed the ribbing which is a relief. Straight off of the needles made the cowl tight and even though Mrs. L is a petite woman…
For you knitters in the audience, I totally recommend this free pattern. I hope to knit one for myself in the future.
Sorry, I need to run as it’s almost time for keiki pick up.
