simplicity cotton yarn in a 2 x 2 basketweave (almost) with garter stitch edging
our chickens eggs on the cloth I knit - like scrambled eggs
radishes and weeds
tried this recipe today:
Crude dumplings and vegetables in sauce
bulgur wheat and a small handful of green split peas <-- put through grinder until makes flour about 1/2 cup, add salt, tiny bit of baking powder, olive oil, water and a small handful of regular white flour to make a dough like yesterday's flatbread - except grainier...
let rest for 10 minutes, roll flat on board with a glass jar side
Then I looked at what kind of dough it had made and realized it was not going to cook well the way the flatbread did, it needed a steaming effect. Since I already had something in the oven I decided to make a sauce on the stovetop this time and let it steam in the sauce. Maybe try a 'steamed tortilla' of it another day.
break flattened dough into pieces
boil about a 1/2 of water, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil and five spice powder
place the dumpling bits in the sauce mixture and cook on medium-high adding some more water if it gets dry, add vegetables and serve with a cooked egg on the side
We also baked cookies today - been working up to it for a few days. White chocolate chip cookies from the recipe on the bag.
