I have a ridiculous amount of tomatoes right now. For the last three years, my tomato crop has been awful, but this year is the mother lode year. I'm picking, cooking, giving away and eating them as fast as I can. I'm not complaining. One can never have too much yarn, fabric or tomatoes.
Into a bowl add:
Several chopped tomatoes
a few diced garlic cloves
Cut up a wedge of Brie into chunks (the best you can, I know it's soft, just lick your fingers real good when you're done)
chopped, fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
Pour some of your best Olive Oil over the whole mess. It doesn't have to be swimming in it, just make it sloppy.
Grab a hunk of bread, stand over the bowl and wait 2 hours for the flavors to meld. (Yeah, right. How about 2 seconds)
Here comes another wishful knitting post. At the yarn shop I found a few silky skeins of Berroco Folio, an alpaca/rayon mix. Which I bought.
Sitting right next to the yarn was a pattern book. Which I also bought.
Maybe someday I will start one of these lovelies, or, I'm hoping my mom will take pity on me and make it for me.
Meredith, I think you have this book don't you? Didn't I see this yellow sweater on your blog?
I started to clean out my sewing room over the weekend. "Started" being the operative word here. I ran across an an orphan block from my first attempt at making a flowering snowball. I added a border, then some random 3 1/2 inch blocks, another border.....
Okay so it's a lateral move. I'll clean next week.
