Aloha! How is your day going?
Mine, very well. Got a good amount accomplished during volunteering and had a pedi, choosin' a lovely periwinkle color for my toes.
Mahalo plenty for the comments so far on yesterday's post. Have you ever substituted for an ingredient you didn't have? I didn't have any half & half so I found on Google I could use a tablespoon of melted butter and enough milk to make a cup. This worked beautifully as you saw the quiche was high enough in the pie crust.
To add for Nancy, I do have frozen slices of ginger but have been using ground ginger for that Korean beef recipe.
Linking up to Tami, this is my latest and newest WIP:
Princess Jellybean's teacher will not be coming back after spring break due to maternity leave so last year, she had requested a cloche from me after seeing me wear mine.
I was planning on using Lionbrand Wool Ease Thick & Quick, but I would never be able to get that 5.5 sts/in gauge! Queena, my fellow knitting group mate, figured Misti Alpaca was loftier. So she told me to go down to a chunky yarn.
Since I'm pretty much on a yarn diet, I found I had more of the Cascade 128 Superwash. I talked to Mrs. J this morn and she confirmed she is not afraid of color and doesn't mind at all that her cloche will be in the same yarn as mine.
You can see the provisional CO. I used a J hook so it was easy to pick up sts through the butt of the chain. I pored over all the projects that had helpful notes and plan to try the following this time around:
1. Kitchener St the ends together; last time I had tried 3NBO.
2. Pick up the sts for the two cable straps and knit them up, leaving the ends as live sts.
3. When I pick up in the round for the crown, I will also go through the cable strap sts so I won't have to sew them down like the last two cloches.
I leave you with a new, Pinterest recipe I had tried yesterday:
This is my attempt at Martha Stewart's Southwestern Chicken Wraps. They're not as pretty as hers, nor did I have any fresh lime juice, but they were good and healthy.
