Woohoo! A finished knitting project!!

i knitted myself a pair of slippers!!!
i was beyond excited to finish.... once i figured out how to cast off.
that shows how often i actually finish a knitting project. ha!
i am a pro at starting them....
generally i then get part way done and lose interest and rip it all out and crochet something with the yarn.
not this time.
hugo was jealous of my new slippers so i had to make him a pair too. his are crocheted because he was not patient enough to wait for a knitted pair. but we kind of match :)
and he wouldn't stand for a picture of my slippers alone so his are front and center.

My favorite things

this is actually a double whammy i realize...

i LOVE these little antique cups.
my mom scored me a full set of them when she happened to see them at a second hand shop.

and also i have a secret slipper love. knitted, crocheted, you name it.... slippers make me so happy!

tasty tuesday.... Beets!

no recipe today.... but what is your favorite recipe for beets?

i just cooked and froze a big pot of these guys.... candycane beets... they're not striped once you cook them apparently. but still super delicious!
so far i have eaten them plain... but i'd love to find some super awesome recipes for them!
