Up and running.

After being stalled due to headaches the previous week, last week I was up and running again.  What have I been doing?

Garden
 

 Digging out a curry plant and trimming a couple of others


It took some digging to get the roots out.  Another one to go on the left of the photo




Cooking
 a lentil/vegie loaf


 it was supposed to be burgers, but I made it into a loaf...it was easier...and baked in oven for 20 minutes


 
here's the recipe, but it is also HERE
 
I didn't have any chives, but added a dash of cumin, tumeric, curry powder, some chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds and lots of chopped parsley!
 
 
Knit/crochet
 
Taking a break from the knitted beanies...I made 12! 
 
Remember these squares I was knitting...
 I decided to undo them


And am now crocheting smaller squares for a throw...
these are about 4 1/2" (12cms), the squares were 11" (28cms) using 2 strands of yarn together



Preserve and eat


Made more tomato relish...with the tomatoes in the freezer from last season.
 
Made blackberry/strawberry jam with last seasons frozen produce.
 
Still eating tomatoes from the garden, and apples from my tree. 
 
I got 7 very large and lovely Golden Delicious apples from the tree.  Which is quite amazing as I had chopped it down to a stump because I was going to remove it...but it grew again...and produced these yummy apples.  So I guess it can stay :))
 
Lunch time...left-over lentil loaf...
 
After rain yesterday, we are enjoying a sunny (but cold wind) day.  Good for drying the sheets...
 
Be blessed!

  1. I'm glad you seem to be yourself again. So much undoing of the yarn, but the crocheted pieces are very pretty! Enjoy your home-work. :)
