2 posts in one day is a bit out of control but, I'm going for it. This (american) thanksgiving was spent chez miss Olivia in Tribeca... Last minute planning turned out absolutely perfectly. I made my grandmothers recipe of yorkshire pudding & cooked the turkey! Dinner for 10 people who barely knew each other ended up being more perfect than any stressful family you-have-to-sit-beside-the-cousin-you-hate-while-your-mom-yells-at-you situation. I'm all for choosing who you want to hang out with for the holidays, well done friends... well done!

Yorkshire Pudding:
(makes 12 individuals)

l cup flour
l cup milk
2 eggs
Pinch of salt

Mix together in a large bowl using an electric whisk or beating the hell out of it until the top is entirely bubbles (for aprox 2/3 minutes)

Let sit for 2 -3 hours - do not move the bowl until it goes into the oven!

Preheat oven to 425
Pour aprox 1 1/2 tbsp of lard into the bottom of each muffin tray (if no lard, vegetable oil will work) and heat the lard/oil until it starts to smoke

Take the pan back out of the oven, add the batter and put in for 30 minutes. Do not open the oven door until the 30 minutes is up or they will drop!!


So, I thought I'd post some pictures of the tie dye process.

The bag which I was skeptical, ended up turning out pretty awesome and now acts as my new hair kit bag for jobs. The cotton is really dense so I was nervous the colors wouldn't seep into the middle as much as I had hoped but, it looks fantastic.

My friend Christy also gave me some little socks to work on so I now own my first pair of tie dye socks. I want all of my socks to be tie dye.

I am also registered for a craft show this Saturday in Greenpoint if anyone is in NY and wants to wander by! I'll have assorted knits!! The info is below:

C'est tout!
