I finished my first shawl from the Shawls 3 book at The Invisible Loom, and I’m thrilled with it.
I haven’t blocked it yet because I don’t have the supplies, but when I do, I’ll post more pics. It will be very lacey.
I’m so excited! I’m going to cast on another shawl in a little bit.
Here it is:
I also made another 2 jars up with food in them. The first one is “Overnight Oatmeal”.
How to Make Overnight Oatmeal
First, you need rolled oats, milk, plain yogurt (if you want), and whatever you like in your oatmeal. I used frozen berries and brown sugar.
This is a quart sized jar (so 4 cups) but you can do it in a pint, as well.
I didn’t really measure anything. I just did it by eye.
First, I put in my berries at the bottom.
Next I poured in about a cup and a half of (uncooked) rolled oats.
Then I poured in the same amount of milk.
After that, I mixed in some brown sugar, and closed the jar.
This can sit for 3 days. It has to sit overnight so the oatmeal absorbs the milk and flavours.
Next day: Open the jar, pour into bowl, microwave and enjoy!
I used sauce my mom made out of tomatoes, celery, peppers, beef and more. I had it frozen in my freezer. I thawed it out, then poured it into my jar. You can use any kind of sauce for this.
I cooked the macoroni noodles (any noodle will do) so they were al dente, because they will soak up the sauce and get softer in the fridge.
Pour in the sauce.
Cook 1 1/2″ cups (for a quart) of pasta.
After the pasta is cooked, strain it and run cold water over it until the pasta is completely cold. Don’t put hot pasta into the jar.
Strain out as much water as you can, and then, carefully pour the pasta into the jar. I used a canning funnel, but its literally 100 years old (it was my great-grandpa’s) and you can’t find them around anymore.
Pour the pasta in, tighten the lid, give it a good shake, put it in the fridge, or eat and enjoy. To heat up, I just nuke it.
