Reality bites.I've been a horrible blogger and knitter this week. I haven't done either since my last post. Don't you hate it when the responsibilites of life get in the way of the cool stuff?
On the up side of things, I think I'm the last person to discover the wonder that is Freecycle. Ever since my life imploded last fall, I have been getting rid of a lot of my 'stuff'. You know, that stuff you bought because you had to have it and now you don't really want it, but it just sits around. I'm a packrat, so I had a lot of stuff! I've sold a lot of it on eBay, but now that it's getting down to the nitty gritty, I'm posting it on Freecycle. I only want to have material things that are absolutely necessary (like yarn!) or that mean something to me (like the china that's been handed down through my family). It's been a tough road for me, but I feel more 'free'. (Am I making any sense or am I in a caffeine induced delerium?)
I'm also hoping to move into a different house this fall, so all of this pairing down will make for an easier move!
During my blog absence, I've had visitors! Thanks for stopping by!
Sue, Leah, KnitNana, Pioggia, ttbookjunkie and Happy all reassured me about Zee Red Scarf. Thank you, ladies!
Happy also asked for the recipe for the "lemon-lime-garlic-horseradish chicken" that I spoke about last time. This is actually a recipe I made up one evening when I bored with my usual chicken recipe. If I may say so, I made up a good recipe!
- Place boneless, skinless chicken breast in bottom of shallow baking dish (I usually cook two servings at a time.)
- Pour over one cup of lemon juice.
- Pour over one half cup of lime juice.
- Sprinkle breasts with paprika.
- Spread small amount of minced garlic over each chicken breast. (I use the garlic that comes in a jar.)
- Coat entire breast with horseradish.
- Bake until done. I bake mine for about 30 minutes at 450 degrees. However, keep in mind that I live at 6500 feet and that affects baking.
I am very happy that tomorrow is Friday. I don't have any committments this weekend, so am hoping to spend a lot of time knitting!
