Okay, before everyone gets tired of looking at these three colors, here is the fourth of four items I was knitting, though I seem to have enough yarn left for a fifth item. This was my second experience with the DPNs, and though just a little bit awkward (I used 4 needles instead of 3 this time), it was definitely more comfortable this time around. Anyway, here’s the hat:
My daughter picked up a book at the library today that instantly piqued my interest: The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook! As I have a dairy allergy but still like to enjoy cheesy dishes, I pounced on the book right away: quiches, fondues, spread, dips, even block “cheese” — marvelous! I cannot wait to try some of these. I’ve sometimes been disappointed in “imitation cheese” products in the past, but they keep getting better and better, and the recipes here, “Chocolate Almond Cheezcake”, “Monterey Jack Cheez”, “Blintzes” and “French Onion Soup Gruyere” sound just so, so good…mmm…
Changing the subject, I have to say I’m impressed with the variety of Christmas music I’m hearing this year, particularly on “Music Choice,” which we have going in the house on the TV much of the time. I’m hearing some obscure songs that are completely new to me. A little while ago I heard this song by Kate Smith (of “God Bless America” fame for those not old enough to remember her as well as we do), new to me, and I was glad to be able to find this performance from “The Hollywood Palace” show back in the ’60s; enjoy:
Well, this has been a hodge-podge of a post! Dinner tonight is Gardein Beefless Tips sauteed with onions, garlic, carrots and kale over rigatoni, so I’d best get to it!
I hope everyone’s enjoying a wonderful weekend!
