Knitting, Baking and a Giveaway

That was all I did today. It was a slushy mess when I woke up today, which did not help in getting me out of bed this morning. I did get up earlier than expected however. I made a pot of coffee and drank it all.
I then transferred to the couch, where I spent a good portion of today. After I took a shower and before lunch, I decided to bake. So I had a Pillsbury Pumpkin Bread mix in the pantry and instead of oil, I added a can of pumpkin, two eggs and some water. The bread turned out a little dense but it tasted good without the oil. I love the pumpkin spice cake so I thought I would try the bread.
I am working on a reversible cable scarf and I am about a third of the way there. It was a good thing to knit while watching Charlie Wilson's War, which I loved.
I took a nap this afternoon, which I needed, and I felt a bit better after I woke up. It is amazing how sleep is so restorative
For lunch, I had the Progresso Manhattan Clam Chowder, which from Progresso through Myblogspark. This is the second can of soup I have had.
The first was French Onion Soup, which I will not be buying if I see it in the store. It was lacking in beef flavor and onions.
The Manhattan Clam Chowder was better. It was flavorful and had both clams and vegetables. If I see it in the store, I may buy it.
Once again, I will be offering a soup package from the fabulous people of Progresso through MyBlogspark. It includes a jump rope that calculated your jumps, a heavy ceramic mug and two cans of soup.
Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner on Wednesday evening.
Anyone do any blogging on their Itouch? I would like to try to blog when I am in Denver but don't know which app to use. Any ideas?
Don't forget to vote tomorrow if you are in Massachusetts!


  1. I love Progresso soups. They are the most authentic tasting soups on the market. I would love to win this giveaway. Thanks.

  2. Hello! I just found your blog. I have just really gotten into knitting, and learned how to knit a hat. Anything past that really scares me at this point

    Loving the giveaway! I absolutely love Progresso soups, and it would be fun to jump rope and count calories!

  3. The pumpkin bread sounds SO good and not too "bad" for you with the canned pumpkin instead of the oil. I love learning about clever substitutions liek this! Thanks for sharing! The jump rope sounds really cool too! :)

  4. I love soup and I love jump roping! (Okay, I just lied on the second one :))

  5. Knitting and baking seems to be what I do a lot of in the colder winter months too.
