Today was a balmy zero here in upstate New Yawk. A tad chilly for me.
I went to the studio to process an order, and I am happy to say that someone bought ALL the close out first version Solmate sock rugs. They are packed to go. History as they say.
Now we can concentrate on the new Solmate sock rugs, the thinner Walking on Sunshine, and the thicker Chunky Solmate Sock rugs.
It will be a little less confusing for the customer, and besides, we like them better, and therefore we like weaving them better.
I had a yen to spend the afternoon at home, putzing around alone in my house.
Don't get me wrong, I love my mother, and having her live with us has gotten to be the norm.
But I think every woman loves to just do their own thing, uninterrupted, in their own kitchen.
And that's what I've been doing all afternoon.
After I hit the grocery store, I came home with a plan.
First, I made Broccoli, Red Pepper, Cheddar Chowda.
The recipe started out with one that Lois found online. I had every intention of following it, until I poured the water that I cooked the broccoli in, down the sink.
I was supposed to save it.
That's what you get when you don't read the directions first. I get myself into a lot of trouble that way.
So from there I decided I might as well wing it, since I screwed it up anyway.
Winging it can be good.
My next venture was Cornbread muffins. I used Bob's Red Mill Stone Ground, Whole Grain corn meal.....and I have to say, they are the best ones I have ever made.
I had to try one, with butter, of course.
Would you like one?? They're still warm.
Then, since I already had a helluva mess going, I decided to make Farfalle with Sausage, Cannellini Beans, and Kale. I can tell you that the 'chorizo' that I used is Smart Sausage, not real meat at all. I can tell you that, because the KALE will turn off everyone in this house, but me. So the Smart Sausage won't be an issue.
Recipes are on my new "Recipe" tab...above.
Now I am going to weave a little on my towel warp, the one I have at home. Just a nice quiet day, staying warm.
DH took Roy for his walk, I declined.
Mom, do I have to wear this????
He was reluctant to go out the door, I watched them go and at first they seemed to be going along good.
Then Roy stopped, and turned around, looking back at the house.
Can we go home????
It's cold out there.
