Ina's Winter MInestrone

Cooking with Wine


Though my husband and I don't drink alcohol, I do use wine and other spirits in cooking. Did you know that you can freeze wine to use at a later date? I learned that from @nigellalawson. I need half a cup of dry white wine for @inagarten's Winter Minestrone, so the rest of this pretty bottle will be frozen in half cup increments for future recipes.

It was silly to get this sparkly wine collar a few months ago, but I just couldn't resist. I'll be using it when I serve all of the bottles of sparkling apple cider I am stocking in our pantry!

A Finished Knit


I finished the Parkington Blanket! I forget when I cast on, but I think it was late summer. I love the combination of the simple cotton ecru yarn with the fancier black velvet ribbon. It is a gift and I can't wait to give it to the recipient!

I finished up the body of this blanket yesterday and am determined to finish the edging and bind off tomorrow. Did I bring enough yarn with me on our little Thanksgiving getaway to finish in the car before we get home?

Early Wrapping


I'm trying to wrap Christmas gifts as I purchase them and I am really enjoying it so much more than I usually do. It's also nice to not have to hide everything now that our children are bigger! 💫💫💫

It's such a lovely autumn! 

Au Revoir


Au revoir to ham and cheese croissants until Christmas. The Nativity Fast starts tomorrow and I am not ready!

Saint Michael's Day Party

Our sons participated in our parish's Saint Michael's Day Party yesterday. The dressed up as The Rich Man and Lazarus! I promise our youngest is not as bored as he looks. He is not a fan of photos.
