The second go-round of the greyhound toque turned out much better. I made the chart with fewer rows and used slightly different lettering on the chart.
This is with Cascade 220 Superwash wool. I am making two for our greyhound rescue group’s annual fundraising picnic and auction in September.
And in the “we know what side our bread is buttered on” department:
I had planned to have bbq chicken breast, grilled veg and a salad for supper last night. The weather was so cold and nasty I just did the chicken and veg inside. I made the Memphis Blues bbq sauce and grilled the breasts first on my grill/fry pan, then finished them in the oven. I roasted the veggies in the oven, too. It was pretty good. (And yes, the poopers got a little morsel or two of chicken when we were finished.)
I had made these so called “New York Times” chocolate chip cookies a year or so ago. I came across the recipe again on a new-to-me blog and they looked so tasty I decided to try them again. If I remember the last time, they were okay, but for some reason I didn’t make them again.
This time, I measured all the dry ingredients on my scale. I realized as I pulled the first batch out of the oven that I’d forgotten to sprinkle a little sea salt on the tops.
You do have to plan ahead; the recipe calls for the dough to be chilled at least 24 hours. Mine was closer to 30ish hours. They turned out really tasty!!
