I have been a busy little knitter the past few days, what with one thing and another. I succumbed to the lure of that peculiar web-like yarn that makes those fast, fast ruffly scarves.
It's fast, but fiddly and more expensive than fun.
Other than that, I've been working out of the odds-and-bobs bin. It does help if you stick mostly to a single color palate. I like blues, greens, purples and pinks, so most of my leftovers play nicely with one another.
I feel as if I had a vastly successful day today. We have a three ring binder full of recipes pulled off the internet, recipes clipped out of the paper, hand-written notes for how to throw something together, and a few 3X5 cards, all shoved in together with no rhyme or reason. I got it organized! I typed up and printed off the newspaper recipes. I got everything slid into plastic sleeves andI even put in dividers to keep things in categories. Appetizers, Breads, Cakes, Cookies, Main dishes, Soup, and Misc. Lest this give you the wrong idea about how we eat, DH is a kitchen wizard who works without a book or a net and regularly turns out delicious meals. I'm the one in constant search for the perfect cookie, the divine cake, the ultimate tea sandwich. He cooks the meals. I provide the flourishes.
So what do you think - knitting on Saturday: Chocolate cake with cherry pie filling? I have a cake tin that makes 6 little cakelets with a shallow depression in the top of each just fit for something lovely to be spooned in. And the bacon cookies went over well. Maybe another batch of those. Then peanut butter cookies to finish it off. Yes, a good, solid spread. Bake-on!
