Coffee + Knitting= Bliss

I want to share a corn bread recipe with you all, it’s do easy! To 1 box of Jiffy corn muffin mix add 1 box of Green Giant Niblets corn & butter sauce, 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk. Then grease a
9 by 9 inch baking dish with Crisco. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish and bake at 400 degrees for 20-30 min. Then remove from oven, let cool…
Then enjoy! It’s so good!!


My sister-in-law has a few chickens and is kind enough to give us 18 eggs weekly. These eggs are HUGE! They are delicious too…
I don’t know what breed the girls are but they are pampered and loved and treated as pets. We have an Amish community here and the chickens came from an Amish farm.

Now I must share my most recent knitting project. It’s called the “Autumn Scarf”. The pattern is Annie Lee’s. You can see more of her knitting on her web site http://www.jumpercablesknitting.com


I’m a self taught knitter. I had always wanted to learn how to knit. I dabbled with crochet when I was in middle school. My mom was an avid crocheter and up until just a few months ago she was still enjoying the craft, carpal tunnel struck like a thief in the night. Now Mother is Leary about picking up her crochet hook… The pain was so awful for her. So… I’ve tried coaxing and I bought her a wooden handle crochet hook and some support gloves but she’ll not have any of it.
Anyway, back to my story…I got a How To Book on knitting. Very basic, geared towards the beginner, lots of clear concise photos and that’s all I needed. Thanks also to the Internet, you-tube and the ladies at my LYS, Crazy For Ewe, I was “hooked”. Pun intended!!

The lace detail looked a bit daunting to me at first, but after a few trial and errors I was ready to get my good yarn out and make this scarf/shawl. This project was knit with Patons Lace yarn in color way sachet. It’s hues of purple, white and lime green. It’s got the look of mohair.
It’s for my Auntie, I know she’ll love it!

I’m back on the coffee thing… I bought a bag of Caffe Verona, it’s a bold brew and I love, love, love it!!

I bought this at the Amazon web site, it’s under 50$ and I give it 5 stars out of 5 stars! I was not familiar with or how to make a latte… I Just like to drink them. So for me the learning curve was a bit curvier , =)

I do love my coffee… Now I can get my fix at home! I still love my baristas at the Starbucks in Safeway!!
Now, I am using the WordPress app on my iPhone, I have the app on my iPad and it’s awesome. I hope this is just as impressive,
Ciao my friends
