Prompt : dec - galapagos islands
Team : Wordy
Bonus Points : n / a
Project name :frog
brief description : when tree frogs began breeding on the galapagos islands they upset the natural balance of the island as they ate large quantities of native insects. To reset the balance the frog population was reduced by raising the salt water levels and poisoning the frogs with caffeine. This needle felted frog is part of a now much smaller frog population on the galapagos islands.

I love sock animals, my SIL has a drawer full of odd socks and I was digging through it for all the ones I wanted. My brother thought I was pretty insane until I told him it was for craft projects.

Class/Challenge: Bean - Aubergine
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Baby Eggplant Spaghetti
Project Page Link: http://vegetariandeliciousness.wordpress.com/2014/09/11/baby-eggplant-spaghetti/
Brief Description: Aubergines and tomatoes are culinary cousins so I combined the two to make a light pasta dish.

Recipe:
1 baby eggplant (per person)
grape tomatoes, halved (the pack I had  was 5 oz and I used them all)
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
olive oil, 1/4 cup
spaghetti, cooked (I use a handful about 2 inches in diameter per person for my pasta)

First, preheat the oven to 375F. While it is warming up, take one baby eggplant (or 1 per person) and cut it in half. Drizzle with a little olive oil and put in the oven.  10 minutes or so is all it really needs.

While the eggplant is baking you can do the rest of the sauce:
Throw the sliced garlic in a saute pan with some olive oil on a medium heat and let it soften slightly. Now you can add the tomatoes (except for 2 pieces).
At this point you can probably take your eggplant out of the oven (the eggplant should be starting to get soft). Switch the oven to broil, top each slice of eggplant with a slice of tomato and some slices of garlic, and pop the eggplants back in.
The tomato and garlic mixture just be cooked now, and all that is needed is to toss it with the spaghetti.

Serve it with the baby eggplant and you have a fantastic pasta dish!

Research project progress

I cast on for the bottom layer of my eagle rug today.  I was knitting this while watching the first episode of game of thrones ( have I been missing out!)
