The dogs came too, of course. What is better than hanging out on the couch with fabric and people who can be inveigled into cuddles? Melody spent most of the weekend on the arm of the sofa, waiting for victims. (Not my NY Beauty blocks. Wish they were!).
Mid-winter calls for soup, so I whipped up a vat of sweet potato soup.
It basically calls for 'enough' sweet potatoes (I use about 6 big ones). Cover with vegetable stock and water. Add a small chilli or 1/4 tsp chilli powder and about 1tsp coriander powder. Boil until potatoes are soft and use a stick blender to blend. Add juice of 1/4 lemon. Serve with chopped coriander. YUM.
We drank, ate and were merry. Of course I got SOME sewing done but I might leave that for another post!
