It's a secret to everybody

Posted at 13 Jul 2014 12:08:45 PM

I wish I could show you what I'm knitting these days. Rest assured, in my (increasingly spare) spare moments I am working away on a secret project.

Right now I am knitting a lace edging in a glorious green silk singles yarn, and I so wish that I could show it to you.

Even worse? There are two completed shawls in my sewing room - and neither are blocked.

To make it up to you, here is an adorable almost one (!!) year old boy. The culprit behind the dearth of content 'round here.

Changing topics to food, I want to share this with you. I was slightly overzealous at the garden center this spring, and as a result am inundated with cherry tomatoes -- my favorite kind, but believe it or not there really is a limit to how many we can use up in a day. I looked here and there online, and came up with a plan.

Aren't they pretty?

Sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil, and into a 200*F oven for 3-4 hours. The flavor was sweet and concentrated.

Packed in oil, to be stored in the fridge 'til eaten on salads, couscous, pasta, you name it. I love sundried tomatoes, and this was a low-cost and low-effort way to preserve my garden's bounty.
