Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

The start of something …


yummy for this year’s garden (all heirloom varieties). I also ordered asparagus crowns which I must now get planted!

Peppers - Jimmy Nardello Italian, de Arbol chilis; Tomatoes - yellow Riesentraube (grape-type), pink Brandywine & Dixie Golden Giant.

My 3rd design is now up on Patternfish; I’ve been working through the previously published ones for which I still own the rights. They’re all getting new charts and schematics.

I haven’t much stir frying lately, but fixed a batch of MaPoTofu yesterday – very tasty (even better the 2nd day); I need to do it more often. The recipe is from Chinese Cuisine, which I got at one of the Asian markets in St. Louis. I like the book, but the recipes assume at least a fair knowledge of how it’s done, so I’m glad I’d watched a lot of episodes of Martin Yan before I tried it.

And of course,  a cat photo …

  1. Hope springs eternal;-D I’m getting the gardening itch, too. Lovelovelove that sweater and your description on the detail page is so you! I adore Chinese cooking, but don’t bother much with any of it now. And, I love the picture of the queen in her castle;-P

  2. I can taste the fresh veggies from here.
