Today in NC the weather is dreary , cold with overcast skies.....that's better than snow and cold in the Northeast where I'm happy not to be ! It's the kind of day to stay in my P'J's knit and fall asleep in the chair ....but first Breakfast with my friend Jilly who has learned to eat grits :o) with much prompting!
This morning the grits were perfect also the cured ham was soaked for a couple of hours to delete a lot of salt content.. a nice fried double yolk egg ( you can't get everywhere, we do in a small country store :o) I just love living in NC....I planted two pear trees three years ago and I make my own pear preserves from them....now don't that sound like Country :o) I wish I were young enough to have that farm, ( until I think about snakes, I change my mind real quick :o( Put a couple of nice buttermilk biscuits on the side ( I buy the frozen Mrs B's , 20/pk. they taste as good as any I would make (almost) unless I feel like making my "Angel Biscuits" I could sell that recipe. Jilly you can have a glass of cold milk and I'll have that Diet Pepsi :o) and DH will do the dishes :o)

have been first....it all went into the pot with spices you didn't see.....
Oregano, nutmeg,Canjun spices, Italian seasoning, ETC. :o) couple of secrets :o)
Here is some Wool and Mohair Blend , dyed with the Prickly Pear , I didn't have to use a mordant with it....and I can't remember if I added some just for good measure......I have some still "brewing" in a container on the Patio ( which is slowly becoming a mini Dye studio :o) The color is like a Strawberry Parfait :o) and looks just as delicious< I don't know what it will become , but I'm sure it will make a nice project happy!
