Yum, I just love to fix this. Whether being for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
As for today, it was breakfast.
Homemade Vanilla Pudding with pomegrante seeds.
It just makes me feel warm and cozy and loved!
The recipe is simple, fresh raw milk, arrowroot, brown sugar, salt, vanilla and an egg if preferred.
Oh, so delicious!

Knitted Ornaments

So, remember, here, I was knitting some ornaments for the Holidays, well, here are a couple that I gave away as gifts, actually, I woulnd up making ornaments for everyone this year.
I really like the way they turned out, however, they seem a little egg shaped.
Now, this may be from how I stuffed them, I haven't quite figured that out just yet.

Hopefully, by the time I get to my last it'll all have itself worked out.
I used a pretty chunky yarn and knitted on size 7 double point needles.

I did figure it out, how they ended up som egg shaped, you just had to work with them a bit, smooshing and mushing.....yep that a whole lot of pushing :)
Anyways, here's the flashback from Christmas!

Making Wine

A friend of mine and myself are attempting to make wine, again.
Well, actually this time it's decided that we are making mead; honey is better than sugar, right!?
So, we have started the process of the Scuppernong Mead.
We picked the grapes from a fellow local farmer, Jim; thanks Jim!
Then took them home and let them rippen up a bit before the stomping began.
And actually, since they were pretty ripe, the stomping did not take us too long. (yummy, up close squashed grapes!!)

We eventually added the ingredients, including the yummy local honey, received from
the Daily Co-op.
So, now the waiting game begins!
And oh, what a long wait it is going to be!
I might sneak a sip here and there to make sure the process is running smoothly, I do need to know how each step of the process taste, right?!
Of course, we did have a little eating of the grapes and making grape juice for the kids!

And, I'll keep you updated on how well it's turning out!
