8.26.2015 Kale Quinoa Cakes

These little cakes aren't hard to make, although I like it best when K and I work together.  We've tried a couple of different recipes and this is what we've settled on for our version:

4 eggs
2-1/2 c cooked quinoa
1/2 c grated Romano cheese
1 c (gluten free) bread crumbs
1 c cooked kale 
         (we minced the leaves, then wilted in a hot skillet with a dab of olive oil - 2-3 minutes)
garlic to taste - we used about 5 cloves
1/4 sweet onion, diced
1/2 tsp salt
olive oil

Whisk the eggs together.  Add quinoa, cheese, bread crumbs, kale, garlic, onion and salt.  Let stand for about five minutes.  Using a non-stick skillet, add enough olive oil to slick the bottom.  Add 1/4 cup measures of the batter, not crowding the cakes.  Brown on each side.  We served with salsa (me) and hot sauce (K).

6.14.2015 This time I won...

One of the nice things about belonging to a small-ish group on Ravelry is the offering of monthly random prizes.  Most everyone offers a prize sooner or later; most everyone wins a prize sooner or later.  This time I won and a marvelous bag maker offered me my pick of a bunch.  I narrowed it down to about four and asked her to surprise me.  Tah dah!  Just the right size for a spindle and  fiber although it might also, if I were a sock maker, be good for a sock knitting bag.

5.2.2015 Snoozy kitty, awkward pillow.

Three nights running she's cuddled up to the lazy kate to use it as a pillow.
