My weekend was full of a little of this and a little of that. Let me show you.
There was a little cooking.
One of the things I noticed about last year’s Christmas Eve gathering was that the homemade candy went over really well. I decided this year we need more so I made this Chocolate Mint Fudge yesterday. I sampled just a bit and oh yeah, it’s good. Recipe here.
There was a little baking.
I read Gale’s post about the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes with great interest. I used to bake bread a lot and I always enjoyed it but I’ve gotten out of the habit. This technique makes it pretty simple and this is my first loaf. As you can see, it’s already half gone. That probably tells you all you need to know, Cookie.
There was a little decorating.
I’ve been so slow getting my snowmen set up this year. I almost bagged the whole thing but told myself to just do it and I’m glad I did. It’s nice to see all my little friends again.
Of course there was a little knitting.
I started the Flared Lace Smoke Ring with a skein of Plymouth Earth Ecco Cashmere. This stuff is so soft and wonderful. I’m really enjoying this project but I know I’ll enjoying wearing this cowl even more.
Finally, there was a little entertaining.
We were so happy to have Kathy and her family over to spend some time with us and have dinner. I know my table is not as fancy as Marcia’s but I thought it looked pretty just the same. And the food was yummy. Pot roast, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Comfort food is my favorite thing to serve when entertaining.
That’s my weekend in a nutshell. What did you do this weekend?
