With Ten Minutes a Day, I’m definitely making progress on the spinning, though I rarely stop at just 10 – more like 30, as I often spin through at least 1 news program. This bobbin is nearly full, so I need to go back and fill the other one to about the same level and do some plying. This is from a Border Leicester fleece I got a couple of years ago – very nice fleece!
I fixed a batch of Swiss chard for lunch today–unfortunately I didn’t get a photo before it all disappeared. I cut 1/2 of a large red onion into strips and sautéd them with some thinly sliced garlic, added the chard stems and cooked a little longer, then added the leaves and a little liquid, steamed it all briefly, then sprinkled some balsamic vinegar over it. It turned out really tasty, so much so, there weren’t any leftovers!
For supper, I did another riff on Nora’s “Nameless Asian Noodle Dish”, using her sauce ingredients with green onions, some shiitake mushrooms, slivered sweet peppers, and cooked chicken (stirred in towards the end). I used some spaghetti-like rice noodles, which were OK, but I prefer the flat ones. This is a very versatile recipe which we really like!
