The Day After.

Yesterday was my mother's birthday. Everyone had the holiday off except my older brother but he didn't remember anyway. :P


I don't know if she liked the sweater. I liked it, though, so at least I don't feel like I was trying to foist it off on her! I'm going to make myself one in mauve instead of green. I heard that someone tried making it out of Knitpicks Decadence and liked the results. Wool of the Andes Bulky fit the bill but it doesn't come in a wide variety of colors.


Kristen and I made Mom cassoulet with acorn squash and chicken sausage for her birthday dinner. She always asks for the same thing every year! ^o^; It's not hard to make but it needed to cook for almost three hours. I'm not sure if the finished product looks appetizing but it was tasty!



One of these days I want to make a real cassoulet with dried beans instead of canned, now that I know the secret of using bottled water to cook the beans. Otherwise they stay like rocks forever!

I'm sure it has a lot of vitamins! It's hard cooking for people who prefer junk food but I always like to make nutritious meals with lots of vegetables, even if they aren't necessarily low-fat.
