Weekly Menu 12/14 - 12/19/09

Scenes from the last week...
#339 Frozen Tree We got our Christmas tree. When they are frozen like this you have to just hope the one you picked out is a good shape!
#342 - Icy ArtThe first "blizzard" of the season snowed us in for a day & left some beautiful art on our windows.
#343But that gave me plenty of time to work on some new mittens. I think I might just be getting this colorwork thing down.

On to Menu Planning Monday...

Chicken Saagwala - We never got to this last week so it's been pushed to this week.

Hamburgers & Sweet Potato Fries

Brisket & Roast Sunchokes

Thai Basil Chicken

Pizza with Roast Beet, Brisket & Blue Cheese

Swedish Meatballs - I have some IKEA meatballs in the freezer to finish up so I just make a quick gravy & serve them over egg noodles.

I LOVE those mittens. Will you be selling any?

kat said...

Lori - You are the second person to ask me that. Right now they take me so long to make I don't think I'll be putting any on my Etsy store but I will take special orders if people want them.

I keep coming back, expecting your tree to have thawed out, lol. Nope, still frozen.

Those are some adorable mittens! A friend's going to teach me how to knit or crochet or sew or something like that in the next few weeks because I want to make cool things like that.

I love that snowflake window's so perfectly winter, though I am not wishing for it anytime soon!

Alicia Foodycat said...

I'm really looking forward to your brisket and sunchokes!

Lori said...

Would a plain mitten take as long? Is it the color mix that takes longer? I am just curious. I am hoping to start knitting classes soon. Mittens are hard to find. I way prefer them over gloves.

kat said...

Lori - A plain mitten would definitely take less time since you don't have to concentrate on a pattern. The nice thing about this two color version is how thick it is because the yarn gets doubled.

The mitts look great! I know what you mean about selling that kind of stuff -- how do you put a value to all of the hours that go into making it? Love the preserve gifts too -- so clever.
