Yes. Yet again, this knitting blog is going to talk about food. You see, I started this blog with the intention of talking about everything, hence the name Cafe Eclectic. Instead of Knitting Cafe of some sort. But when I first started, I didn’t know what to put on a blog, so all I talk about is knitting. But now I think it is finally got to the point of where I want it to be.
So on to the food…
I didn’t have pancetta, so I used bacon instead. The roast I had didn’t need as much of chicken stock as it called for, and it cooked longer – about 1.5 hours. I think it all depends on the size of the roast. The result is a tender, juicy roast. And the polenta is the perfect compliment to this dinner. Although I think white rice would do as well, since there were lots of yummy pan juices left on the bottom of the pan.
So I joined the Hot Cocoa Swap #2. If you missed it last time and would like to join this year, hurry over and sign up since they are only taking the first 100 participants! I had a great time with this swap last year and highly recommended!
Lastly, I’m almost done with my new sweater. Although I’m getting worried on the yardage I have left. The pattern said 9 skeins, but I already used 10! And that’s all I got! I’m crossing my fingers on the yardage. Hopefully I’ll finish the sleeves today to get a judgement on that.
