I made a lot of headway on Rob's sweater but taking a photo of it at this stage really doesn't make any sense. I am actually going to start the armhole steeks tonight so that will be worth noting.
The whole weekend was soggy and dreary. I spent a couple of hours on Saturday feathering my nest by cooking. As a vegetarian, I rarely prepare meat for Bob but I was on a culinary roll. I bought a pork loin roast, slashed small holes in the surface and stuffed them with chunks of garlic and lemon peel. Then I oiled the whole thing and rolled it in spices to sit overnight Friday night.
Saturday morning I steamed up so leftover winter squash, sauteed apple, onion and garlic. All of that simmered for a couple of hours and then got whirled up into a comforting soup. One roasting dish was filled with beets, carrots and more lemon rind. The other, the classic Yukon Gold potatoes with big chunks of onion. For my main course, I had melted cheese toast with tomato and lots of mayonaise. The soup went with it quite well.
Because we had plenty of leftovers, Sunday was laaaaazy. Sitting and happily knitting Rob's sweater while I read a silly mystery.
That's pretty much my idea of a perfect autumn weekend. Tonight, steeking and Monday Night Football.
