We took a vote and it’s unanimous – we’re not leaving the house today! Well, that’s not entirely accurate – the big fella HAD to run out to Sobeys and pick up a rotisserie chicken for the poopers. I put a little cubed cooked chicken on their supper kibble to make it a little more enticing. And we’re out, so it’s an EMERGENCY. Heh.
Yesterday I made these wine braised short ribs in the crock pot. The house smelled wonderful all day long. I followed the recipe except for the finishing. I skimmed the fat off the sauce, then put it in a pan on the stove top and reduced it down for about 20 minutes. That (plus a bit of flour) thickened the sauce and improved the flavours. They were very, very good and about 1/10th the hassle of the cabernet braised short ribs we did when Ande was here. Oh, and I used an Australian shiraz for the ribs yesterday.
I haven’t started anything new knitting, but I have made another Kureyon Coffee Cozy but I used some left-over mmmmMalabrigo for this one. It turned out smaller than the Noro one, so I might do another, but make the stitch count proportionately bigger. We’ll see. I need to browse my Rav favourites and queue to see what appeals to me next.
