Good thing: Adorn magazine! Holy moly, this is a fun magazine. I just bought it (it hit the newsstands today), and I’ve already read it cover-to-cover…and I plan on re-reading it later today. Nearly every project looked like something I’d like to do, and of course every little handmade product was one I wanted to purchase. I’m definitely subscribing to this one…go look for it! Right now! Why are you still sitting there?!
Bad thing: I made this recipe for Asian Dumpling Soup last night…and unfortunately, my dumplings completely fell apart. I didn’t even cook them very long…I think they’d be better if they were just plopped frozen into the soup just before serving. Maybe it was the brand I bought, but my soup ended up looking like this:
Not a good thing. Any of you out there who know Justin at all know that he did NOT like this recipe. The soup itself tasted great, but soggy dumpling mass? Not so good. I’d consider making it again without the dumplings…I think even if they weren’t overcooked Justin wouldn’t like them. It’s a texture thing. The only dumpling-like thing he likes is Lindsay’s matzoh ball soup.
Yesterday I listened to an old Craftsanity podcast in which the host interviewed the ladies of Knitta Please, a fun knitting-graffiti group from Houston. Have you guys listened to Craftsanity yet? It’s so interesting to hear how all these crafty people got started, what inspired them, and how they work. I really liked the interview with Alicia Paulson…she’s so insightful. Anyway, the Knittas podcast has inspired me to knit an antenna cozy for my car. And maybe the cars of my friends. Be on the lookout, friends.
