House Capuchin Shield2Of course, his past week flew by. Some of us were being the cheering section for folks heading the KA&S and the Summits folks made a good showing! I’m working on a page of pictures and commentary for that, so watch for the links.

Pickled Eggs

This week is going to be a little odd since Anja, Stella and maybe Amy are going to Coronet on Saturday, so that will dump the Herbs Workshop unless we get some things done during the week. Cheese and Wine should have our first meeting this Thursday at Ancient Light at 5pm.

  • Sewing Night – At Ancient Light, Thursdays, 6-8pm
  • Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
  • Anja makes a mess

    Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm

  • Project Day – At Ancient Light, Sundays, Noon to 6pm
  • Cheese & Wine – Watch the schedule or the Facebook group! This is going to be irregularly scheduled for when tasks need to occur.
  • Next Potluck – 4/9

Here is the direct Portfolio link which has all the past Project Day reports and various projects, original here:  and new one here: and number three is here:

Early Week – Mostly planning for events and moral support for the Summits entrants to KA&S was going on, although Anja was writing some new blog pages (mostly below). The big one was the re-write of BA&S. The page isn’t so much what our people did, but a showcase of the folks who entered the A&S competition. Anja is doing the same thing for KA&S, but it will be the Summits folks who entered the competition. 

Sewing Time – ….was just Anja, so she spent the time sorting sewing materials that have popped up in the moving process. Stella had been planning on making it, but decided to play it safe, since she was going to have a hugely busy weekend. She’s made 3 hats during the week. Anja was also working on the Thingy Bag embroidery.

Herb Bunch – This was mostly working with the eggshell fertilizers. Folks didn’t show for the actual workshop because of the weather. Later in the day Anja pulled out her spoon basket and worked on those for a bit, especially the two spoons of bay wood, but her set of chisels is awol, so the bowls of the spoons will have to get finished later.

On Saturday, also, some of us were watching the An Tir Virtual Feed for results on the A&S Championship. Marya was a finalist!

Project Day

We started the day with sorting out clean feast gear. Anja spent a little time on spoons. Virtual Feed watching was still in the plans, so we found the Aelfgifu was the winner of the A&S Championship and the premiere inductee of the Sable Bonnet, a new award for the highest single score in the Championship.

When what Anja had planned for a feast dish, turned out to not be doable since the ingredients weren’t there, so she looked up some recipes and made the cabbage pottage below and a creamed chicken dish at the last 2nd.

When Amy and Stella got there we started on the fruit, pickles, bread and butter and nuts. Eventually we got around to the pottage and chicken, then finished up with the cookies! There was a lot of “ooh” and lip-smacking over Loren’s wine. 🙂

We ended up talking butchering, mostly of chicken, but also frogs, and then about bats, hypnotizing chickens and foods and finally about our various projects and the KA&S results.

Cabbage, Leek and Onion pottage

Cabbage, Leek and Onion pottage – This was a last-minute brainstorm on Anja’s part, since what she had planned wasn’t going to work. If time allows, chopping the coleslaw and making your own broth is the hot tip.

  • 3 large leeks
  • 2 small or 1 1/2 medium onions
  • 2 bags of deli cole slaw mix
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • salt
  • 1 box of chicken broth
  1. Chop leeks, onions, cabbage to “deli slaw” size (1/4 inch slices, tops)
  2. Heat broth with coriander (and any necessary salt) to boiling.
  3. Add ingredients and cook until done.
  4. Taste test and add salt if necessary.
  5. Serve hot.

…and good “adds” to this to make it a main dish are either cooked crumbled bacon or chopped ham.
