Just got back from a weekend in Reno. My friend Lori cooks at the Genoa Cowboy Festival every year. She’s told me so much about it I just had to finally make the trip and go with her. She belongs to a Dutch Oven group in Reno. The whole group had an area where they cooked and offered samples to people who came to the festival. So many talented cooks and really fabulous food. Lori even got me to make an apple pie in a Dutch Oven. Wasn’t really sure how or if it would work but it did turn out nice. I was super pleased and the pie was gone in minutes. I got a lot of nice comments on it and am planning on going again next year.
This last month I took a break from finishing up projects to make her an afghan for her birthday. I used Red Heart yarn. Some of it came from my yarn stash that included some that her mom gave me about a year ago. It is in Heather Gray, Burgundy and White. I didn’t have a pattern but just did it granny square (rectangle actually) style. It was came together really quick and I like how it turned out. Cool mornings and evenings I hope will be a little warmer with this. She really liked it.
