We went to an annual chilli fest in our neighborhood this evening. Everyone is asked to make a dessert or a salad. I saw this recipe on a food blog and being a long time lover of the the old "red velvet" had to try it.
The rather thick batter is rolled up jelly roll style with a ricotta and strawberry filling. Next time I might try to make it look neater but have to say it was tasty. wow! That dough is really red.
and because I must create a few things to maintain my sanity, these are my offerings so far in the month of February. This is called the potato chip scarf. It is knit of hand dyed Japanese yarn. Was lots of fun to knit.
We had dinner with our friends Linda and Ed on Saturday night (very delicious I might add) and Linda gave me these red beads. I went right home and made these earrings for church the next day.
A flannel blanket and a little hat to be given to a couple of Humane Society employees for their soon to be born little boy. This was a request from Dennis.
