Leafs Nation Beanie all done...#1 that is...

Leafs Nation Beanie #1 was completed last night.

Here's a picture of little man wearing it.

And here's what he thinks of it.

On a different note, here's what's slowly boiling on my stove right now.

A beef stock. Recently, because I didn't have any in my freezer, I had to resort to using some tetra version from the grocery store. To my horror, there were ingredients listed such as yeast and caramel colour. Yuck. Luckily I had saved the large beef bone from a roast (don't worry, it was in the freezer), and I had some veal bones and stew meat that I had frozen after a visit to the local butcher a couple of months ago. Together with lots of veggies -- I included mushrooms this time too -- my stock is happily boiling away and making the house smell lovely. After straining it later tonight, I'll have many one & two cup beef stock increments in plastic containers ready to freeze. Tetra/canned no more for a long while.
