I had worked on a teapot cozy and wasn’t happy with the outcome. Last week, I picked it back up and finished it.
For something that I made up in my head, I guess it didn’t turn out too badly. It fits my one-cup teapot and does keep the tea hot while it steeps. I used Peaches & Cream cotton yarn.
I do have another idea for a cozy. If it turns out ok, I will (hopefully) write the pattern down on paper. I hesitate to write down a pattern. If I am on a roll, I don’t want to stop to jot down notes.
What usually happens is, “What I see in my head isn’t the same as the outcome”. Argh!
I had purchased some new blended, signature, teas, Wizard’s Grey and The Evening Star, from Adagio online (sample tins are no longer available). Both blends were very good, but as for my go-to-tea, I will probably just stick to Earl Grey.
These signature blends are perfect if you wish a treat now and then. I just don’t want to depend on an online store to keep me stocked in tea. It’s more convenient to go to the local store if I run out of tea.
I also wanted to share the flatbread that I baked. I love how it folds without cracking. I found the recipe for this flatbread at Mel’s Cafe Kitchen.
To go along with the flatbread, I also made mulligatawny soup.
Years ago, after watching “Seinfeld’s” The Soup Nazi episode, I was curious about the recipe and found it online. It is delicious! I omit the eggplant and add more of the potato, pistachios and cashews to the pot.
Of course, everything that should be eaten in moderation is what I add more of…of course!
