Fiber and Food

FIBER


Our wonderful LYS Woolie Ewe is having it's annual sale. I was able to get these lovelies at a nice discount. And thanks to my fabulous students who gave me gift cards, it didn't cost me a cent!
Thank you, thank you dear students.

We have Sirdar DK on the left in a luscious heathered teal (for my DH's sweater), Hempathy in Rose on the right for me! and Lorna's Lace Amish and Sand Ridge in the front. The bright colorway in the back was a gift - Jitterbug by Collinette in Lapis. I am ready for socks!!!!

FOOD


Here is the quick and easy recipe for the Chicken Cacciatore I made on Christmas Day:
1 chicken, cut up and skinned
1 onion, sliced in rings
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 oz (more or less to taste) quartered fresh mushrooms
2 stalks celery, sliced in 1/2" pieces
2 cups tomato sauce
Italian spices (whatever you like)
Olive Oil
Red Wine - a couple of "glugs" (optional)
In an electric skillet (or large skillet) put in some olive oil and cook onions and garlic in until tender. Remove and save.
Brown chicken pieces.
Put the onions and garlic back in, adding the rest of the ingredients.
Cover and simmer until chicken is tender.
Serve with pasta and a salad.
Yummy!

There's only one thing better than a haul like that, and that's a haul like that which you got to chose AND was gifted, how nice of your students!
