The quiet of January allows me to start reflecting on unfinished projects and new projects that I want to start. I had huge goals to finish a pair of socks for both boys for Christmas. But, time, a nasty cold and other projects got in the way. This week I've been concentrating on finishing those socks for around the house. I know they will never wear them out, but it warms my heart when they put them on after they get home from school.
Besides knitting, I've been perusing my cookbooks and online cooking sites. I really want to make an effort to widen our food repertoire. My boys are not picky eaters, but tend to stick with meat, veggie and some sort of starch. I would love to use curry more, and convince them that eating just vegetables for dinner is an acceptable thing to do.
Yesterday, I made kale chips. Easy and simple. I wasn't sure of the reaction I would get, but was pleasantly surprised. Matt enjoyed them and swore he just wasn't' eating them to get more time on the xbox. Ryan never got a chance to try them, as the dog thought they were mighty good and had a great healthy snack while we weren't looking!
I think, I might explore this leafy green a bit more!
