In the oven & on my needles!

 

Spring is in the air in NY! After a nice Sunday morning walk, it’s knitting & cooking for the rest of the day. I’m making a few meals, for the week – including roasted chicken and turkey meatloaf.

1 lb of ground Turkey – you can make a larger loaf with more Turkey.

Add 1 medium onion, chopped

1 egg

1/2 of a Green/Red/Yellow Pepper (diced)

3 cloves of fresh garlic

1/2 t of both garlic powder & onion powder

1 t of Mustard (whichever you prefer) 1 t of Ketchup

1/2 cup of raw Oatmeal

Salt & Black Pepper

Cover in foil and bake at 350 – approx 35 -45 minutes or until done.

You cna make a sauce to cover the meatloaf using ketchup, mustard to cover the entire loaf and bake during the last 1o minutes.

My current WIP:

On my circular needles: the Red White & Blue newborn baby hats (for our hospital charity project). I had a random ball in my stash but this Red Heart Yarn batch is years old and has shorter color striping resulting in a spiral look.

Summer, 2016

We enjoyed an outdoor concert, “Dancing Under the Stars the other evening – the temps were gorgeous, it was breezy and everything felt magical.

We’re having our first real heatwave (expected to last a week) here in NY. Fortunately, the humidity is not bad – I could breathe! 🙂

Me and hubby enjoyed shopping (mainly window shopping) today. We visited K-Mart, I was in search of beauty items (nail polish, eyeliner, etc.).  I always enjoy HomeGoods and love seeing their ever changing items. The baskets, pillows and large glass floor vases were calling me name.  I picked up some of their amazing bottles of spice and some new cloth dinner napkins.

We enjoyed an early dinner at Applebee’s and shared a full rack of ribs…mmm. There is nothing like ribs to knock me off my vegetarian mode..lol The frozen strawberry margarita was (and is always) refreshing.

 

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)
