Holidays are nutz…. There wasn’t a lot of time and attention to spare this week, not to mention the “interesting” weather. We’ve got a lot of links in this report, but not so much of our own stuff.
I don’t know what is happening to the tags for these posts. 3 weeks in a row I got them added in just the same as I’ve been for years now, and only 1 or two show up? …and maybe I figured it out. We’ll see when this publishes….
Hopefully next week will have more.
All meetings are on hold for the moment, although Project Day and the Monthly Potluck are being held in the Virtual Realm. We’re also doing mini-potlucks, just Anja & Loren and one other “pod” at a time. Let us know if you’re interested!

Early Week – Mostly cleanup and sorting. Trying to get photos. Some cookery.
Cookery – Early in the week we did bread, lentils and a creamed turkey dish. Loren’s favorite pun, “Peas and Hominy in the New Year” was next. Two more batches of marzipan happened, and then more fudge, and we tried to do a poppyseed roll, which now looks to be happening for the next report.

No Knead Bread Recipe – Nick Saint-Erne – This is the No Knead Bread recipe from the book “The Re-Enactor’s Cookbook” by M. Allyson Szabo (2020). The bread is delicious and similar to what would have been made in the Middle Ages. The rest of the recipes in this book are great and will help you learn how to cook meals over a fire for Medieval Re-enactor’s (SCA) or for camping.

Sewing – Contemplating fabrics for the frame pouches. Worked out another pattern and turned it into a divider, too. Yes, that’s the divider on this week’s report.
Episode 10: Tent Stitch – Agnes Berengarii de girona – Tent stitch is a strong stitch for using on cushions, pillows, and other household items that take a lot of wear and tear.
Sundials, etc. – The bones were boiled again to degrease them and then scrubbed with detergent.
Herb Bunch – More vegetable ends were planted in one of the buckets, and a sprinkle of alexander seed went in as well. The weather was too messy to do much outside.
Project Day – Isabeau was so on top of things she was posting before the day started! Loren and I worked on bones and photos. …and then we sidetracked into the boxes that need to go out in the morning. Later we got some more marzipan done.
Isabeau said, “I’m currently working on the neckline of a T-tunic. I’m using embroidery to keep the facing down. I’ll do rows of stitches as my day rolls along.” …and later, “More stitches and colors…..”.
