Sometimes the simplest things are the best.
We’ve come to the end of the harvest and I have tomatoes. A lot of tomatoes. We plucked all the green ones that are ripening on a mat in my garage awaiting. The ones that were already ripe, we’ve been trying to eat them. One of my favorite ways to gobble up tomatoes is in a simple salad.
3 large tomatoes – diced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 TBS Lemon Juice
one good handful of finely chopped basil
3-4 cloves of crushed minced garlic.
Mix it all together and there you go. It’s simple and tasty. If there is sauce left over, I put it in a jar and dice up more tomatoes the next meal.
As for simple in the rest of what I’ve been doing. Well, I can’t say the rest is actually simple but there are simple things. The Forest Canopy Shawl is simple. It really is as Susan says, it’s a great beginner lace shawl. The repeats are easy to remember. I had it memorized after the first repeat. It’s gorgeously simple. Not that you can tell by this:
That’s where we’re at now, the mashed lump of green lace. Pretty. But you all know the potential.
Knitting lace has reminded me how much I actually like to do it. I’ve dyed up some yarn to make 2 more shawls and I might actually finish the 2 that are marinating in the WIP pile. One is self designed and I need to find my notes before I continue. I suppose that wouldn’t be so simple. Now I simply need to get to the shop and start my day.
