The Weekend with Pictures

Waiting for the breakfast to arrive. Every weekend, it's the same for Kidlet: one pancake, two slices bacon, a scrambled egg, and a big strawberry.


Do I see a smile on this hunk o' dough?! This is the dough for the calzones that I made Saturday night that rocked the world. The part that didn't rock the world was right before I was about to serve said calzones, Kidlet busted her mouth by falling while a toy from her tool bench was in her mouth. A little blood, a lot of tears, and we're all good again.


This is last night's desert. I made crepes (call me 'crepe maman') with veggies and cheese inside for dinner and then hubby made the most amazing lemon blueberry butter sauce for desert.


Uhhh...no bunny yet. I'm still thinking over the ear issue. But I did get the body done for the first of my Eowyn fingerless gloves. Yes, that's a cable. My very first. Ok, hubby, I know you are already planning more 'laying cable' jokes. But woo hoo! I flew through this thing. Sad thing is that I didn't do a gauge swatch and it seems like it may be a bit snuggly. Oh and the other crummy thing is that I knit this while watching the Saints LOSE. Sniff, sniff...dry those tears.

Well, that's the weekend update. Hope yours was full of good food, good kids and good fun.

As I read the bit about kidlet falling with a tool in her mouth and the blood and tears, etc., I am slowly scrolling and see bits of the picture below... couldn't help but think it was a pic of the bloody mess! HAHA! But, I was happy it wasn't... instead a beautiful dessert that I wish I could make.

Oh! And great job on the cables!! Was it hard?

Maybe I need to put description first, then photo!

Cables were almost embarrassingly easy. Throw a few stitches on an extra needle, knit the next set of stitches, then knit the stitches you set aside. Voila! I think describing it is harder than doing it.

Aren't cables fun? I did my first this past fall and loved them something about texture is really appealing to me.

do you use a crepe pan? Do you have a gas range? I forget. When I come over, maybe I can make steak frite and you can make crepes!

And Greg can make...um, booze!

When can I come over for dinner? We eat alot of roast chicken around here.

Ani said...

Well, if y'all don't mind eating veggie or fish, c'mon on over! I'll even get out the good wine that doesn't come in a box!

Justin, steak frites sound so damn good but hubs and I went back to the fish eaters diet. Muffalettas, perhaps? We'll meat 'em up just for you!

Ani said...

Oh, and in answer to your questions, Justin, we've got a craptacular electric stove and no real crepe pan, just an evil non-stick that is used only for eggs and crepes. But it did work well...
