The kitchen continues to be my primary outlet these days. (I have to eat, right?) This weekend’s big supper was chicken sundried tomato sausage (from Trader Joe’s) with broccoli rabe (my new favorite vegetable) and butternut squash polenta. I also baked up a batch of World Peace Cookies (sorry no picture) and I can’t say enough nice things about them. They are the perfect cookie when you want a good chocolate fix.
Lately, I’ve also debated about how much longer I might keep this blog going? Between all the time I spend on the computer at work, posting pics on flickr, reading bloglines, and Facebook, I’ve been suffering from some massive internet fatigue. I’m still in a major crafting rut. I have a mountain of unfinished projects. And I hate having a blog sitting around for weeks between updates. I think I’m going to have to reevaluate in the coming weeks.
All that said, I miraculously managed to finish a crafty project this weekend. This is Squarey from Jess Hutch’s Unusual Knitted Toys for You to Knit and Enjoy (now sadly out of print). I rarely stick with the same color scheme as a pattern but lately I’ve been on a big orange kick. This was an easy and fun knit, actually begun before the bar exam. I just didn’t get around tothe seaming until last weekend and adding the arms and legs this weekend. (I told you I had a finishing problem, right?) Squarey, fortunately, is a patient little guy. I just love him. =)
