Whoa. This week totally got away from me. Last night I realized that I haven’t blogged since Tuesday! Consider today’s post a rather disjointed “show and tell” from the week.

Tuesday’s outfit, ready for dog-walking. (I love my Sorels — perfect for frolicking in snowbanks and walking through slush-puddles.)

Quick, warm, hearty lunch: sauteed mushrooms simmered in homemade tomato puree, pasta. I might have accidentally eaten the whole bowl. Sometimes it is hard to shake that “big spoon” mentality — I have to remind myself that I’m not camping, and that leftovers are not just allowed, but desirable! (Big spoon is where everybody takes another spoonful, and another, until it is gone. With a group, it isn’t that hard, and that way there is nothing to pack out — and you can do the dishes.)

A homemade treat from my friend M. She’s already finished with her comprehensive exams. Isn’t it beautiful? I can’t wait to try this pear-honey wine (also known as liquid encouragement).

No handknits in this picture, but one of those accidental outfits that somehow made it out the door. I like all the pinks and purples.

Mushrooms and komatsuna sauteed in a balsamic vinaigrette. I ate this over fresh spinach from the farm. A winter treat, to be sure.

Friday night. late. A hot toddy to keep me company while taking notes. So good.

Parsnip soup (with maple syrup and mustard) in a favorite mug. Baby-shower knitting. And reading. The shower is today, so I’ll post less cryptic pictures soon!

  1. Glad to see you’re keeping warm and nourished during prep. Side note: I know you said you’re “taking notes,” but I see Ravelry on your laptop :)

  2. Looks like you managed to be good to yourself despite the work-heavy week! I’m always struggling to cook something in the evening after a day at uni and often resort to eating on campus (very much not healthy…) Have a good week and good luck for your exam preps!

  3. I know, right? How did February get here so fast? In any case, it looks like you’ve been keeping warm and fed and busy … you will show those exams who’s boss!

  4. Glad all is well. Hope your baby shower knitting is going better than mine. I’ve screwed up something with the “easy” cardigan from More LMKG and it’s in time out while I think about it!

  5. Love reading your blog…I don’t cook, I’m not a student, but I do love dogs and Live with 4 of my own plus 2-6 foster dogs at any given time!

    I actually looked up what komatsuna was..who knew?
