Have you ever had to dress like this to knit?
I know, my Lord Vader dust mask and foam knee pads set off my work clothes in a most becoming fashion. And I don't even have my ear protector muffs on yet.
But at least when we take a break from sanding there is some culinary comfort in the kitchen. Yesterday I assembled my favorite cold soup called Chlodnik.
3 C chilled buttermilk
1/2 C Sour Cream
1 t salt
1 smallish garlic clove, finely pressed or minced
1 C chopped seedless cucumber (or take a regular cucumber and cut out the seeds before you dice it)
1/2 C chopped radishes
1/2 C chopped walnuts
2 T chopped fresh dill
ground black pepper
1 C diced beets (I like freshly roasted or boiled beets, but you could use canned ones or pickled ones if you prefer.)
Whisk together all ingredients except beets and chill. Top each serving of soup with beets.
It is tangy, crunchy and refreshing. Just the sort of food you need to eat when you realize that it is after noon, you have only sanded 1/3 of the floor, and the kids will be back soon from Granny's house....
