Something to eat

korean stir fry
Here's a lunch from last weekend, at a new-ish Korean restaurant in town. The rice was served in a very hot stone bowl, and you combine the other ingredients into the rice to build your own stir fry. That was fun, although I'm not too sure about some of the pickly bits.

On to dessert from last night. We had great pizza and other Italian cuisine, and managed to find enough room for dessert.
dessert calzone
This is a dessert calzone. The same size as a regular savoury calzone, which makes it quite a big dessert! It was chocolatey inside. Not mine though.
I was also fascinated by the dessert pizza (marshmallows, strawberries, white chocolate).

But I am a creature of habit, and I can never go past a tiramisu, especially in a GOOD Italian restaurant, and last night was no exception.

crazy enough that it just might work


Thanks to a sighting on Donyale's blog, I'm partway through one of these. It hadn't ever occurred to me that you can do ribbing within big cables. I got quite a kick out of this little moment of revelation. Along with how fast it grows. Going from a 4ply project (skinny wool) to two 8plys held together will have that effect!
