Good movies seen for the first time: 2 (Thor & Toy Story 3)
Good movies seen again for the first time in years: 1 (The Fugitive)
Projects finished: 0
New projects started: 2, both stripey, one of which will go a little something like this:
Projects abandoned temporarily: 1. The orange and blue knee socks are not going to fit. Knitting knee socks top-down is all well and good as long as you have a firm understanding of the size of your calves. Turns out I almost understood the size of my smaller calf. Starting over on larger needles soon, but not yet. I need time to get over these 8 inches of work.
Days spent cooking: 1.25
Total items/dishes prepared: 12. This weekend’s cooking results were most satisfying. I made smoked paprika pork tenderloin and potatoes; asiago, potato, and bacon gratin; chicken sausage calzones; veggie calzones; 4 quarts of tomato sauce; mushroom and toasted pine nut brown rice (to be served over roasted acorn squash and topped with the aforementioned tomato sauce); curried squash and cauliflower soup; apricot and almond baked oatmeal; and chili. About 8-9 hours yesterday and 2-ish today, and we’ll be eating for a week or two with minimal effort. I also have a few pounds of chopped onions, almost enough stems and ends for a pot of stock and a 2nd pork tenderloin in the freezer.
Total meals/servings ready to go in the fridge or freezer: 45, give or take a few.
Which reminds me – new appliances I haven’t shown you a picture of yet: 1. Meet Frederick. He’s actually from a few weekends ago. We’ve been getting along swimmingly.
