Cozy

Today is a cozy day. Cool, brisk and leafy. I plan on making the most of it.

Yesterday I took a knitting class with this girl. After a 2 year break it came back to me pretty quickly. I think it's going to stick this time. No, really. I mean it. Nothing says cozy like knitting in the Fall.

I'm going to make this recipe for pork chops in the crock pot. With or without cranberries...I haven't decided yet. Then these biscuits. I'm always on the hunt for the perfect biscuit recipe. If you have one and want to share, I'll love you forever. Afterwards I'm going to bake this pumpkin cake.

After all that hard work, I'm going to curl up on the sofa, knitting needles in hand and watch When Harry Met Sally.

That's my idea of cozy. What's yours?

  1. My go to biscuit recipe came from Southern Living years ago. It's easy too since it uses self rising flour.

    2 cups sof wheat self rising flour
    1/3 butter
    3/4 cup buttermilk

    Bake at 425 degrees for 12-14 min. Perfection! :)

    By the way, I love your blog but I'm not sure I have commented before.

  2. I do have a biscuit recipe. Basic, but it is the one I grew up with. Let me look for it and I will send it to you in an email.

    Okay. Now I want to make biscuits.

  4. Sounds heavenly. I don't knit, but I do crochet (only basic stitches), but I find it so relaxing and love to do it with a movie in. I need to pull out last winter's project and finish it up!
    You're a lucky girl! I wish I were able to be home. My girl is on Fall Break and I have to work.:(

  10. Cozy? In the 40's and 50's outside, in my flannel pajamas,reading a good book and my dog next to me on the couch.

    Biscuits? Pillsbury Biscuits in the freezer section. Taste like homemade to this lazy baker.

    Crochet? I can't wait to see the new scarf.

    Movie? The Waitress.

    xoxo, I'm jealous of your weather....Julia

  11. Your day sounds so cozy & so does that meal!

    My idea of cozy is sitting in front of wood burning fireplace with a glass of hot spiced cider. An old movie (Black & White ideal) on the tv makes it perfect.

  12. Sounds like the perfect cozy day. Mine would be similar, but I would sit in my chair by the fire and reading some magazines that have arrived and are sitting waiting for me.

  13. Now you have got me wanting to cook! Everything sounds delicious. I am wanting to pick up crocheting again. I have a friend who can teach me, and fall would be the perfect time. Not quite so cool here yet. Have a great weekend. Jackie
