I’ve completed the left front and very close to completing the right front of the CP Non-Hoodie. It’s coming along nicely. The Cascade 220 is really a nice yarn. I’m still looking at buttons and haven’t found anything that grabs me yet.
My knee has been bothering me a lot and I haven’t been on the treadmill since Monday. I probably shouldn’t have gone then, either. I have an appointment on Tuesday to see what the doctor says. We went and looked at elliptical trainers today. I tried a few out and it didn’t hurt my knee, so that might be the direction I go. I’ve got to do -some- form of cardio!
I saw this video and couldn’t stop laughing (and replaying):
Tonight I tried this recipe for an Apple Galette. Hmph. Pastry is SO not my forté. I followed the directions and used my food processor to make the dough. Pastry. Whatever. I used 5 large Granny Smith apples. I don’t think I rolled the pastry thin enough, because mine didn’t have enough to fold over as much as the one in the linked recipe. I had a hard time rolling it out without it cracking apart around the outer edges. Also, because I used 5 big apples, I had quite a pile of apples and it took forever for them to cook. Don’t get me wrong, it tasted really good, but instead of the 35 minutes baking time, I ended up baking it for 55 minutes (covered it with foil so the top didn’t burn) to get the apples tender. I do not think any of this was the recipe, it was all me. I would probably make this again but roll the pastry thinner and maybe use fewer apples.
