I have big things for you today. Or maybe they’re big things for me.
Number 1 big thing
I won a wheel. It’s in NJ. That’s right. Silly me bid on an ebay wheel in NJ that is pick up only. Anyone coming up from NJ for a fiber even that want’s to pick up a giant wheel for me?? Or will I be making a long drive south? I bid on it and bid low because I really have wanted this wheel for a long time. But then as I calculated the drive time, I began to wish someone would out bid me. So no one in NJ wanted a Jensen? Will someone in NJ want to drive the Jensen north? I’ll be at NHSW, MA SW and ME Fiber Frolic.
Number 2 big thing
Big Portabello mushroom caps. Meat for the vegetarian. It has a great texture and it is one of the few non-meatish meaty things that really grill well. Don’t even talk to me about griling Boca Burgers, they get so dry on the grill. Not that I won’t still eat them…
Bascially we’re going to grill a cap and then fill it up.
Brush off any dirt on the cap – then brush it with olive oil and grill the sucker.
Then stuff it.
Spinache, sun dried tomatoes, garlic and onions.
Rice Recipe (shown above):
Spinache, brown rice, soy replacement product or tofu (if you need that extra protein kick), onions, more mushrooms.
Basically you cook up one of the stuffing recipes and once the mushrooms are grilled, you stuff them. I know I didn’t give you ingredient amounts. It all depends on how many you make and having left over stuffing really isn’t a tragedy. It’s nice to eat by itself too.
Big thing number 3
I did a huge amount of knitting last week.
I bought yarn last week for a Baby Boogie sweater. Over the weekend I got a good bunch of it done. I devised a pattern that has no sewing! It’s freakin incredible. The pattern pages are at least one page longer than normal and there are a few more ends to weave in (dang stripes) but I really am happy with the sweater.
I hope I get it done in the next couple of days. Although it’s supposed to be nice weather, this is supposed to be her spring sweater. I know, nothing like cutting it close.
