Knitters’ Tea Party
Today I met up with 11 other frocked-up knitters for high tea at Harrogate Teas in Pyrmont. The event was organised by the amazing Jody as a special outing for the regulars at the Thursday night Morris & Sons SnB group. Over the course of three hours, we enjoyed numerous sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, petit fours and chocolates, and lots of tea. (There were also several bottles of bubbly being passed around, but this sickie took a pass.) It was lovely! We knitted and chatted and tweeted and amused the heck out of some American tourists. There were also many photos taken…
100 Things Your Kids May Never Know About. The one that made me laugh was #92: “Writing a check.” Not in the NSW Knitters Guild! I swear; they’ll be the last cheque-requiring holdouts in the country. The Snook and I finally killed off our cheque account a couple months ago, since it was costing us $10/month and we wrote maybe three cheques a year. Of course, that came back to bite me in the ass when I needed to send in a new Guild member’s registration form last week. Instead I had to make a special trip to the post office to get a money order, which cost me $4.50. It’s ridiculous. We pay all our bills electronically now, and there’s still this one organisation requiring me to send in a bit of paper.
The star of tonight’s dinner: Sauteed Parsnips and Carrots with Honey and Rosemary. YUM! We had a couple parsnips rattling around the bottom of the veggie box that I needed to use. The Snook isn’t a big fan of roasting them, so I found this recipe. It was great! I followed the advice to put crispy bacon on top too. Highly recommended.
