Vegetarian Enchiladas & Apple Crisp

Last night we cooked some vegetarian enchiladas. The ingredients are potato, tomato, onion, red onion, green chili pepper, avocado and parsley.  It was very tasty and filling.  We also made our simple balsamic vinegar dressing for salad.


And an apple crisp for dessert. I got a bag of local apples yesterday. I put less flour so it wasn't very crispy but healthier.  Looking at the picture makes me want to add some maple syrup and raisins. I guess I'll try that next time!

Quick & Easy Homemade Granola Cereal

I like cooking or baking pretty much everything at home.  Here's my favourite easy and quick granola recipe.

1 cup Rolled Spelt
1 cup Rolled Oats
1/4 Sesame Seeds
2 tbs. Maple Syrup
1 tbs. Oil
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp. Salt

Mix together and heat up in a pan, keep stirring until dry and golden.  If you like, add some raisins after all the ingredients are cooked.

Ravelympics 2010

I knitted few more things during the Olympics.

Pattern: Meret (Mystery Beret) by Woolly Wormhead
: US 7 / 4.5 mm
Yarn: Cascade Yarns 220 Wool, Color 2403

CO 80, followed the instruction for medium size, added an extra repeat. 

It turned out a bit too short for my head, I gave it to my daughter.  I'm still thinking of going back and adding an extra repeat to this.

And... socks for my fiance. They are very warm and comfortable!  I like the simple pattern.  Since these socks are designed for worsted weight yarn, I finished them in a couple of days.  

Pattern: Thuja by Bobby Ziegler 
Needle: US 6 / 4.0 mm
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Worsted, Color Cobblestone Heather


I also knitted this adorable sweater for my friend's newborn baby.  Knitting this reminded me of the days I was pregnant.  It's so much fun knitting something for a baby during the pregnancy.  I miss those days!

Pattern: Mossy by Jolene Lye 
Size: 3 month
Needle: US 9 / 5.5 mm
