Cooking, knitting, spinning, oh my!

Cooking:
For this week's blogstalking activity, there was cooking. Chicken cutlets. You start with thin boneless chicken breasts...

Dip in egg...

Dredge thru Italian seasoned bread crumbs with extra Italian seasoning and some garlic powder...

Fry in frying pan with some vegetable oil...

And voila! Chicken cutlets.


Knitting:
Rpm socks finished shortly after the last blog entry...

A finished knee high in the infamous orange sock yarn that Laura sent me. Pattern is Karen's Red Socks:


Spinning:
This is the Ashland Bay that Tamara gave me...click for closer up view.


Stash Enhancement:
I went to the Point's 40% off sale today. I bought a hank of Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester 2/8 (click for close up):

And 10 balls of GGH Mystik, to do the Go with the flow tank that Laura finished and Valerie is currently working on.


Other fun stuff:
Tamara and I went to the beach for some knitting and some rays yesterday. I cast on for Sizzle. No pics, because it's just a few rows of seed stitch at the moment. Pics when there's more to look at. I did take a pic of Tamara testing the water....


And because someone asked in the last entry to see the tattoo created by my friend...note the little one's initials, and the heart for a wing. Sorry for the blurriness of the pic....tis difficult to take a pic of your own ankle....

I think the Tatt pic is pretty good to be self-done. Try taking one of your ARM instead :) Those chicken cutlets look droolicious!! Now I know your secret :) I love the sock! See it's YOUR sock now. Now I wanna try it. But I've got FAT legs and prolly can't get the cuff to fit unless I increase to like 500 stitches! :)) WEEEEEEEEEEEEE

A day at the beach, how divine! And your chicken cutlets look delish--much better than my leftover pizza!

You whip out socks at warp speed!

Wow, your day seems to have so many more hours than mine! Those chicken cutlets look so yummy. Now that I'm back to eating meat (per doctor's orders), I can't stop drooling.

And I really like those orange knee-highs. What a fashion statement! It would be fun to show them off, or to just have them peeking out from something long. Fun either way!

The chicken looks great! I am one who has a hard time boiling water.
I LOVE the tattoo.

Nice sock progress there!

I like your tattoo. Too much pain for me, but that's a pretty one. I always like your socks. Fun colors!

Yum on the chicken. Do you ever deglaze the pan afterwards and make a sauce?

Bezzie said...

Mmm..delish looking chicken. I do that same dredging method when I make chicken cordon bleu.

And I love your tattoo--I like the way you incorporated kiddo's initials...you're inspiring me....!

Heather said...

Yummy chicken cutlets. I make mine the same way when making chicken parmesan.

Love your tattoo! Very pretty colors and design. Is that your only one? I have one but want another.

Sarah said...

made me hungry!

Nice spinning! Nice! I bet you can't wait to try those wheels at Rhinebeck!

I can't BELIEVE that I made it this far in life without realizing that I will not be complete without orange knee highs.
