Fall Season

 

I love Autumn.

 

Here in NY we did not see the usual bursting colors of bright Gold or Red leaves this year – not enough cool weather nor rain. But, it’s Fall.

I started a nice cozy, bulky cowl ,in this beautiful Green. Housed in my new Sheep project bag. I’m using #11 needles and knitting in the round, knit, knit, knit, knit…

The Farmer’s Market is winding down for the Season. I’ve stocked up on Cilantro and Red & Yellow Peppers …going to try my hand at canning small jars of Sofrito….we’ll see how that goes!

 

Simple Sunday: Stitching & Soup

The weather is just gorgeous…cool, in the 50’s – perfect for brisk walking. After a good walk I settled in for a day of hobbies. I’m working on fingerless gloves, in homespun yarn – so soft and fuzzy.
Making some for charity, Midnight Run who help the homeless. Others I will sell. Another WIP (work in progress) is this Cowl in Pink, Homespun)

I got a late start getting my crock pot loaded – this is an easy peasy no-fail soup!

Potato, Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

30 oz. (approx 1 1/2 lbs) of shredded potatoes
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 frozen box of broccoli
12 oz shredded cheddar cheese
6 cups of water or any broth (I used water and it was yum!!)
1 t. salt
1/2 t black pepper

Literally dump all the ingredients into the Crock Pot
Add 6 cups of water/broth
Stir
Cook on High for 4 hours or Low for 8 hours

Enjoy!
