Massive Knit Tag

During the move it became very clear just how much craft materials we have acquired, we also have a very ugly large pipe right in front of the washer and dryer. So the answer to both was knit a giant knit tag!

The installation went quite well and now I have something fun to look at and less yarn. Wins all around.

Making Monday: Simple Bread

We recently got "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" and it is amazing. The basic premise is beautiful homemade bread with as little time spent as possible. We have been making loaf after loaf, it is so addicting. One of the best features is that you as suppose to make big batches of dough, refrigerate them and bake them when you're ready anytime in the next week.

Everything has also been delicious on top of the bread as well, our favorites have been fake butter, our very own jelly, and honey from the farmer's market.

We recently went to Marla's and it was to die for. They have awesome options for meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike. The place is small and welcoming,without any fuss just great food.

The portions are also huge so everyone got to go home with leftovers!

Making Monday: First Jelly/Jam!

 We recently tried our hands at making jelly/jam. We went with what there is the most of at our Farmer's Market, and so blueberry/raspberry jam it was!

 We used the recipe from The Homemade Pantry by Alana Chernila, but we halved it because we really had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. So we ended up with 3 perfectly filled jars.

 They all sealed within half an hour of taking them out of the canning pot, and look gorgeous.

And taste AMAZING! I may have a little bias, but I took my first bite and declared it the best ever.
