A new butternut squash soup was a hit, with the addition of a chopped apple, paprika and chili powder. I never would have thought of those two spices in a butternut soup, but it was really good. However, if you're going to add Hot Hungarian paprika like I did (all I had in the pantry), you may want to put in less than the recipe calls for. I had to finish my soup off with the cream (not a bad thing, I must say) to take the sting out of it.
We are going to a Superbowl party today. It's cold and cloudy. A storm is on the way, and I would rather stay home in my pajamas, work on some embroidery, and watch the game from my own couch. Instead, I guess I'll go put on a bra and some makeup so I don't scare anyone.

Crochet granny square
For the granny square there was no tutorial so I just copied the picture as best I could. Round 1 is 12 dc's. Round 2 is 2dc, ch1 in between each dc from previous round. Round 3 is the same as round 2. Last round is 3dc, ch1 ( in between dc from previous round). Do this twice, then make your corner with 3dc, ch 2 3dc. Repeat all around. I used Knit Picks Dishie yarn with a G hook.
