This weekend’s theme:
I mean the almost fluorescent kind.
Posting has been difficult. All personal pages are blocked from work. I can READ blogs, but I cannot comment or post. We’re trying the e-mail post today. I’ll add (orange!) photos later.
My students are testing today, so it is a lot of time to walk around and knit while I make sure each student is doing his/her own work with no undue assistance.
And what I am knitting? An orange vest!
Big-sis is a tiger cub this year at school, so I am making a vest out of kitchen cotton. Under the fluorescent here it GLOWS, let me tell you.
The vest has simple cables and bobbles to form tiger paws going up the front. The plan is to do a v-neck and have the paws continue up each side. We’ll see how that looks.
And other orange?
Two pumpkin t-shirts. We tried the freezer paper stencil thing and it worked out quite well. T Shirts were on sale at Michaels for $2, so we stocked up. This could get quite addictive. I have visions of a Spock shirt for the husband’s birthday.
And last? Ginger Carrot Soup. Very orange and very tasty!
Carrot and Ginger Soup
1 medium yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
2 Tbsp fresh ginger, diced
2 stalks celery diced
1 medium bag whole carrots, sliced
2 medium potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces
Optional: Sour Cream or heavy cream
Cook the onion and celery with a pinch of salt in olive oil over medium heat until translucent. Add the garlic and ginger ands sauté for a minute. Add the carrots and sauté for another minute. Add the potatoes and enough stock and water to cover all the vegetables. Simmer for about 30 min until all the veggies are tender. Puree using a blender until smooth.
Add the sour cream or cream if desired. My girls like it with skim milk.
