so I’ve started knitting another one:
I’m using some Cascade 220 Heathers in #4011 “sparrow”, and Noro Silk Garden #244. I should have enough to make a pair of matching mittens. The colourway of the Noro is quite enticing:
It rained a lot yesterday and in the night. We spotted a break in the rain after supper (oh, that reminds me – comment about supper …) last night and whisked them out for a stretch.
I had a blade roast I was going to do in the crock pot. I found this recipe a few weeks ago: 3 Packet Pot Roast & Gravy. Look at the photos – doesn’t it look yummy? It uses a ranch dressing packet, and Italian dressing packet and a gravy packet as the seasoning blend for the roast. I don’t mind ranch dressing, I can take it or leave it. The big fella, however, abhors it. I thought with the gravy flavouring and the Italian, the ranch wouldn’t be so noticeable. After an hour or so of cooking, though, blech! The aroma was overpowering and disgusting me. So I took the roast out, rinsed all the seasoning off, cleaned out the crock pot, then cooked it with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and a bit of water. It was very, very good! And I made just regular gravy with it. Yum. But if you dig ranch dressing, give that recipe up there a try!
