Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts


Food, flowers & a floor

Since I had a bunch of kale, some potatoes and a piece of flank steak that were all rapidly approaching must-go status, I made a batch of Colcannon (mashed potatoes, with a chopped sautéd onion and blanched kale folded in, then browned like a giant potato cake – non-stick skillet very highly recommended!) and broiled the flank steak to a nice degree of rareness – yum!

The 2nd stalk on the amaryllis is getting ready to open – originally I thought there were 3 buds, but there are 4 🙂

The flooring guys are moving along. The latest concern is that they think they’re going to run out of the hardwood – eh? I hope there are no dye lots in oak flooring!
