Soups On!

A couple of weekends ago I made onion soup for us and we have slowly been polishing off the leftovers.  I took a picture a week ago when I made my last bowl because it just looked so darn good!  Man, now I want more onion soup.  Dammit!

Slaving Over Onions

Welcome to what I spent almost an hour babysitting yesterday morning.  I decided to make onion soup and let me tell you, when you have this many onions to caramelize and this little pot real estate, you are in for a long haul.  I think we need to invest in a dutch oven. Brian made a small amount of these tonight in our cast iron pan so I could have them on my pasta and I swear they only took him 15 minutes.  Grrrrrr....  speaking of onions, I believe a bowl of my soup is now calling me.  Melty cheese and french bread hear I come!

Remembering How to Draft

It's been quite awhile since I spun anything on my lovely spinning wheel.  So, I decided I should get back to it!  This was the Australian Merino I decided to start with last night.  It looks quite different from anything else I've ever spun up.  The edges of the single aren't particularly distinguishable from each other. Normally it's very easy for me to see the separate strands as they wrap about the bobbin, but these just blend together and look altogether way to soft and comfy :)   Hopefully this will be to my finished yarn's benefit and make it uber-soft.

Hot Breakfast on a Weekday


Both hubbie and I had a snow day today, so among other fun things, I decided to make us a nice, homemade french toast and bacon breakfast.  We just might have gone out to the Price Chopper to procure ingredients at 11pm last night in anticipation of today's free time.  Turned out pretty well and as an added bonus, I got to finally do some photography for once.  Maybe today will entice me to keep it up.  Sorry I've neglected you photo blog.  Please forgive me?
