I couldn't get a picture of this one that I was happy with. It looks so pretty in person. Oh well. Same pattern, but for some reason it came out much shorter than I like. I swear I measured it when I made my starting chain! Hmm...
As you can see, I'm having a cowl obsession these days. I found a new pattern of a really cool one I'm going to make soon. I need to make a few short-term projects before I get back to some of the longer ones and these are making me happy.
I made a yummy dinner last night. Again, the pictures aren't that great, but it tasted better than it looks! I wanted to share the recipe with you so I'm showing the pictures anyway...
That's a lump of mashed potatoes in the back there. Everything looks the same with that gravy on it, but it was good! Just believe me and ignore my bad pictures.
Salisbury Steak & Gravy
1 pkg onion soup mix
2 cups water
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1 jar sliced mushrooms, drained (optional)
Combine soup mix & water in a 2-cup measuring cup and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together 1/3 cup of the onion soup with ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, salt and black pepper. Shape into patties.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties. Pour off and discard excess fat.
In a small bowl, blend flour and remaining soup until smooth. Mix in ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, and mushrooms if using. Pour over meat in skillet. Cover and cook on low for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
I also added some browning sauce (Kitchen Bouquet) to the gravy mixture to get that great dark brown color. I added about 2 tsp.
The dog groomer just pulled up...gotta run!
Clean dogs, oh yeah.
