(The strawberries are just implied. I don’t have any pictures of them today, but don’t let that fool you; I’m on my 5th quart this week.)
Last night’s dinner — a stifry loosely based on a recipe in Heidi Swanson’s Supernatural Cooking. (I highly recommend flipping through it the next time you’re in a bookstore!) This is a basic sesame oil stirfry, and while my ingredients were the green things overflowing my refrigerator (garlic scapes, broccoli, komatsuna, chard, cabbage, radishes, scallions, ginger), I followed Heidi’s lead and added lime juice and chopped basil and mint just before eating — yum!
After dinner, I sat down at the wheel to work on that delicious melon-y targhee. After another hour or so today, I’m almost done with the second bobbin — I can’t wait to ply this!
Also, I finally took stripes! off the kitchen table today. It was sooo close to dry when I put it on before breakfast:
Even though there was terrible light this morning (raining all day today), I think the vibrant colors of the Noro stripes really stand out in this photo. I know it is only June, but there is a part of me that will not be sad for cooler fall weather to arrive because it means I’ll get to wear my stripey sweater…
I cannot believe how perfect your singles are. You are a spinning ninja!
I don’t blame you: with such an awesome sweater finished, who wouldn’t wish for fall? Good luck with the spinning and the strawberries. And the reading, too, if, like the strawberries, that was just implied as well.
Sometimes I hate the fact that San Francisco never gets warm. I can’t believe that for Sunday afternoon’s baseball game, my wardrobe options will be fluffy down jacket or wool pea coat. BUT, it does mean that I get to wear handknits all year ’round!
Oooh, that stir-fry looks delicious! Our poor wok got lost in our last move, so I’ve not had stir-fry in far too long.
Congrats on finishing Stripes!, and thanks for all of the helpful feedback you’ve given me!
