It's been utterly crazy around here, Between spraining my ankle so bad it would have been better if I had broken it, mom being sick, and all the other crazy stuff, I haven't thought to blog. Yes, for months, But, I shall get better.
Last time we left, I had discovered that I was allergic to msg. And I was making everything myself. It's been hard, but I've been doing it. Making my own bread, pizza, crackers (not as hard as you would think) muffins, cookies ICE CREAM. It's still a try and see thing, but I haven't had to use my epi pen! I found a restaurant where I can eat, granted it's 2 hours away, but still. Yesterday,
I made this amazing soup using stuff I found in the pantry. It was a mason jar of mixed beans, 28 oz of diced tomatoes, a thing of Swanson chicken broth (which doesn't have msg in it!) some water, garlic powder, pepper, and 2 bay leaves. I threw it all in the crock pot and cooked it for a looong time. a few hours before I ate it, I tossed in a can of tomato paste to thicken it up. Considering I had no idea what I was doing, it turned out so yummy!
but the best part about making everything myself? I feel so much better.
The knitting I shall save for next time (this week, i swear), once I get photos. I have quite a few projects too. Several calorimeterys, a few hats (all blue), some socks, a cowl, some entrelac, washcloths, and even a shawl!
