Astonishingly enough, I occasionally do things other than read and talk about reading. Made and Making is my attempt to pull together some of the crafts, cooking, and other ventures I embark on each month.
I am working on Secret Projects for family members, so I can’t share them yet. Also, I am trying to decide what to make with all the teal worsted I have. I love this pattern but think I would want a different color. This is a very plain shawl. I really really love this one, but I would want to double the pattern and I’m not quite sure how to do that. There’s also this lovely Faroese shawl. Basically, Ravelry is the best/worst.
– Salmon with Fresh Sorrel sauce. I decided to try growing sorrel in our herb patch this year, and this was my first attempt to do something with it. It ended up being kind of a pesto-y sauce, and very delicious.
– Peach ginger jam–I’ve been interested in small batch preserving recently and, since there’s a peach stand near my house, I thought this would be a good attempt. It turned out really well!
– White Beans and Cabbage, from Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Everyday. This was totally delicious! I can think of some variations that might be good, with various herbs and so on, but the original is great too.
