. . . Day 6 of no car. I could have guess from the statement of a "couple of days" would turn into this. But it's out of my control and what can I do. . .
CATCH UP. With my project, I've been feeling a bit under water with. I'm exhausted from trying to keep up for the last 2 weeks but this past Friday, I had made great progress and no more drowning feeling [it does help when you know come Monday, you get to turn back the part of the project you've been covering for someone]
KNIT. Since I set my goal of not buying new yarn and to knit my stash away. I made good work of it this weekend. Three project on the burner: another set of bib and burping cloth, fingerless gloves for WG and a cardigan for hmmmm . . .maybe me or a gift. This is attempt 3 with this yarn/cardigan combo and hope the third time is a charm.
Pattern: Lodi Cardigan by Tanis Gray
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease

COOK/BAKE. I know, I know, I'm always cooking and baking. Mostly for things for the restaurant: Apple Bread Pudding, Creme Brulee, Molten Chocolate Cake, Apple/Pear Butter and Blueberry Jam
|Hope this makes customers are happy|
And had a bunch of blueberries [you know who bought those], I made a batch of blueberry jam. I added some zest and a juice at the end to brighten up the flavor. I've been using the immersion blend on my jam to give it a smoother but slightly chunky texture.
I've been want whip up a batch of granola for ages and thought I'd toss in the quinoa since I don't like it as replacement for rice. I tried out this recipe from two peas & their pod.
|Can't wait to have it with my yogurt|
I made a batch of ranch dressing since I have sour cream in my frig because of the cheesecake I make. I saw a pin on Pinterest that inspired me. Been trying to get as much veggies in my diet lately and this dressing will definitely help. I got the recipe from Will Cook for Smiles

Well, I guess that it for the past week. I hope I still have the energy to test out a cake recipe that I've been dreaming of. Chai Cake with a lemon curd filling and Vanilla Swiss buttercream. Maybe I'll bring that in for someone birthday at the office.
