Today the Man and I watched the Seahawks from the kitchen as he made little pizzas. They are off to an amazing start- 4 and 0!
I helped prep toppings and such, but The Man is now the uncontested king of dough on the homestead, and makes a mighty fine crispy crust.
It started out a couple months ago with yeasted breads- ciabatta, baguettes. But he has recently developed an interest in sourdough-
And has even ventured into sweet territory with these killer cinnamon rolls
It’s such a treat to have fresh bread. I especially enjoy it toasted in the morning with eggs from my chicken friends.
Speaking of chicken friends, I wanted to give a shout out to Yellow Chig, who has finally stopped feeling broody and was up to coming out for a bit of a walkaround the other day.
She spent a little time checking out my work on the hoophouse site and enjoying some fresh grass, but is pretty happy these days just hanging loose in her independent living condo, away from the pressures of the pecking order.
I’m thinking that once we get the hoophouse constructed I will be able to find a nice spot in there for her to overwinter.
I did get a bit of knitting done this week- haven’t jumped into the big project (Alcott vest) yet, but am biding my time with another hat, Mountain and Valley (though I have to say I have taken some liberties with the pattern)
That’s Fiona yarn again, but this time paired with a polwarth and silk blend in a tarnished copper penny-ish colorway. The different colors aren’t coming through as clearly as I hoped, but it might be that I spun it too fine and the different shades got a bit muddled. I might spin the remaining 6 oz a bit thicker. But in any case it does still give a warm brown/gold contrast to Fiona’s light fawn. And it is marvelously soft.
Hope to have more hoophouse progress to share next week- take care, and stay safe!
