Ten on Tuesday: I Am...
1. I am conflicted on which way to go with this post, so it's probably going to be all over the place!
2. In case you haven't heard, I am a grandmother! It's hard to believe he's 3 weeks old already!
3. I am looking forward to my first babysitting gig.
5. I don't know if it's a thing anymore, but I am considering knitting it, start-to-finish, during the games that start later this week.
6. If that doesn't get my knitting mojo going, I am not sure what will.
7. I am still quite interested in handsewing & embellishing, and exploring more of the techniques of Alabama Chanin.
8. In fact, I am anxiously awaiting delivery of some new materials for a couple of small projects I have in mind that will also make use of some old materials -- re-use and recycle, if you will. This could definitely mess up the knitting plans.
9. I am at the beginning of another Whole30. There was a birthday celebration over the weekend and a big football game, which means cake & pizza around here, but I didn't over-indulge and was already prepping.
10. That means that I am cooking! Over the weekend I made a pot of Chocolate Chili (rave reviews from everyone) (from Well Fed, one of my favorite cookbooks), an Italian Pork Roast (in the oven instead of slow-cooked) (to DIE for) and Silky Gingered Zucchini Soup (both from Well Fed 2) (yep, I'm a fan). I also roasted a spaghetti squash and a few whole sweet potatoes. And, finally, MAYO! I made homemade mayo only once before; I was in high school and had run across the recipe... and was so intrigued by the idea of a recipe for mayonnaise. Who knew you could make it yourself? I sure didn't. So, anyway, that's given us plenty of food to start the week. I had the last of the chili with a dollop of spaghetti squash, above, for lunch today. Yummm.
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.
