Cooking, knitting, staying warm

Homemade Potato and Pea Samosa




Still here. For some reason, I haven't been able to log in to WordPress. I'm pretty sure it's because my web host has been under a hacker attack.

The arctic chill has me spending a lot of time in the warm kitchen. This week I've made potato and pea samosas, hamburger buns, pop tarts with cinnamon filling, wild rice pilaf, and a potato-crusted quiche for my Paleo husband. Tomorrow I'm planning on a parsnip soup, a recipe I follow from my oft used copy of Jane Grigson's Good Things.

And I know at least one of you can tell what I've been knitting. ;-)

I had my last physical therapy session last night. My improvement in range of motion has been dramatic. Now all I have to do is get off the blood thinners, and I'll feel like I can put this latest medical drama far behind me.

Last weekend I finished refashioning a skirt I picked up at the thrift shop a couple years ago--a beautiful plaid Talbots skirt. I'm happy with the results, and it looks great with my newest knit cardigan, which I've yet to show off here. As soon as it warms up, I'll have the resident photographer set up a shoot outside.


  1. Boy you have been busy! The food you have made sounds delicious!

  2. I love samosas, but they look like way too much work to make from scratch. Well done you! And that looks like a Snaw Heid on your needles. :-)


I love comments!
