Gad Zukes!

Busy past 2 weeks.

Great fun hanging out with fellow knitter bloggers Caitlyn, Ruth, Cyndi and Lori.

And yes, Stephanie, I bought a camera! Actually 2. Karl has been dying to get a camcorder. So I bought the new Canon SD700 IS and the not-so-new Panasonic PV-GS300. Took both to the Bay Area last weekend for a wedding.



Had a blast, visited...



...heard these...



...and saw these...



On the domestic front, some knitting has been done. Like Wiggles and Waves...



...close up...



...but mostly I've been cooking a lot. I haven't talked about it much but I've been baking and cooking up a storm. The latest dinner was Chicken Marsala with Browned Butter and Mizithra Spaghetti...



...with a batch of Chocolate Zucchini Cake.

This weekend will be another adventure, and I'll share photos next week. Until then, hope you all have a fun Labor Day Weekend holiday!

Oh well crap. You just had to go buy the 700is didn't you. I've been debating between that and the Fuji F30. I haven't bought one - still debating. Your photos are great and it sounds like you're keeping busy.

Cyndi said...

Wow - the sweater is very photogenic! Did you take all those pictures with the new camera? They are great pics!

Where did you get the recipe for chicken marsala? I'm seriously considering adopting your weekly menu plan... but first I need to find myself some recipes!

Chocolate and zucchini? cake? Sounds strange to me ... buy they look yummy!

The chocolate zucchini cake (and she made it from scratch!) was divine! Thank you so much for your hospitality Lynette. It was the highlight of my crazy week.

How much butter do you melt for the mizithra dish?

Babies have a way of bringing new cameras into their parents' lives:) I am envious of the photo quality, and my poor camera will never be fully appreciated again. Wiggles and waves is too cool - love the colors.

Wow, the chicken marsala looks delish! Great photos by the new camera!

The knitting looks fabulous! I'll have to try the chocolate zucchini cake - I've been hearing a lot about it lately.
