I may be brain dead. I can’t think of a single interesting thing to say. Here are some pictures.

Rye soda bread:

Rye Soda Bread

This was amazing! I looked at a couple of recipes and then just ended up winging it. It’s basically plain old soda bread with rye flour. It was exceptional.

Ratatouille with a fried egg:


I used this recipe, and I will definitely be using it again. If you like eggplant, make this. Really. It’s savory and filling in all the right ways.


Ripple Recon

I might be fantasizing about a ripple afghan. Who knows why . . .

And no pictures for this, but I’m reading The Historian. What a book! As soon as I hit “post,” I’m diving back in.

And blogs! I’ve added several new knitting blogs to my daily reads list. I’m still getting to know these bloggers, but so far I’m liking what I’ve found. Check ‘em out!

Hopefully, brain activity will resume at Casa Knit Potion soon. I’ll keep you posted.

    How do you find the time to read all the blogs you read? There are so many that I would like to read on top of all the academic reading I’d like to do, there isn’t enough time for that and…you know…life.

      I totally know what you mean. The thing is, most blogs end up petering out and not being as interesting as I’d hoped. I think that’s why it’s so exciting to find a good one that looks like it will have staying power.
