These aren’t hard at all and I’m sure most everyone knows how to make some version. Mine are loaded with Garlic.
Mashed potatoes for supper.
Wash a bunch of potatoes really well, chop, boil. Then I mash them with sour cream and garlic. Instead of sour cream you can use a little lemon and tofu or that Tofuti Sour Cream for Vegetarians stuff. Eat hearty but save some for breakfast. Sure you can make this the same day you’re making the pancakes but it works much better if it’s cold.
Now comes the hard part (which isn’t very hard at all). Form it into a patty (this is why it’s easier when it’s cold). Put into a pan of hot oil. you don’t need a lot of oil, but you need a skim of it so the potato doesn’t stick. I usually saute the onions and mushrooms next to the pancake. I also like it with spinach or chard (I just happen to be out right now). I remove the pancake when it’s done and then add a touch of soy with the veggies that are cooking still. And then put it on top of the potato and eat.
I finished spinning this for mittens:
2 ounces and about 120 yards of each of four colors in Shetland. I devised a mitten pattern to work with this. As soon as I get it wound I’ll be working on it…. well. I’d like to finish this mitten first:
It’s the Mitones Ivenos mitten in handspun BFL. I have to kitchener the top and finish the thumb. I’m not sure if I’ll do the second one. The loose cuff bugs me. I know it’s designed to go over the sweater or jacket but … I’ll wait and see what I think before I pass judgement. Of course I do have plans to make gloves with January’s fiber of the month colors. Yes, I’m already thinking of January. I finished December’s fiber and knit a hat:
You didn’t think I would really show you the color’s did you? But this is a pretty good hint. Check out the stripes!
I did finish 2 other things:
Quant in a handspun Navajo 3 ply – the colorway is “Fruit Stripe Gum”. I had originally made the yarn to make mittens for the girls but I had to make a Quant so I did. I think Miss 7 going on 20 will like it. I’m hoping she also likes her new vest
I need to still block it, weave ends and put in the zipper. The pattern is from “Soft and Simple Knits for Little Ones”. I altered the pattern a little because I always do and I was using a different yarn. I used Ella Rae which is gorgeous for being mostly acrylic. I really recommend this yarn as far as washable goes. I like it enough that I’m thinking I need a sweater in it.
