It's cooking time! I mean knitting. It's knitting time?

Started Aidez again this week, using Sirdar Tweedie. I realized that the Aidez I was making for someone was too long. I think. Actually, I'm pretty sure it is. Also, I was getting sick of looking at that color. Porcini. It wasn't my first choice when I ordered the Wool of the Andes bulky - I really wanted Wallaby, but unfortunately it was sold out when I called. Since I'm impatient more than I am picky (and I am definitely both of those things), I went with what I thought was the next best color - porcini. The color was pretty different when I received it. I was expecting like a very light oatmealy color, like when I made my Drops jacket:

It wasn't. At all.

So, hopefully...someone will appreciate it? Because it's definitely not my color. Someday I'd like to (actually finish one that I'm knitting) make one for myself.

I am liking the Sirdar color I'm using. It's pretty neutral. I think it's not as bulky as the Knit Picks, so to me the cables don't look as tight, but it's still pretty good...

OK, you can't really tell anything from that picture other than the color, but I'm tired. It's been a long weekend. What was I doing? Oh, let me explain. Chris' birthday was Thursday so we invited our 4 friends over last night(we are so popular) and I decided I needed to come up with a menu for some snacky things. But talking about snacky menus is boring. What isn't boring?

Peanut Butter Fudge Cheesecake.

OK, so my pictures aren't as food porn-y, but I was on a tight schedule, guys.

First up: putting almost an entire package of Oreos in the food processor, then add butter. Ohhhh....

I prepared the crust, and then baked, and froze for a bit...because you have to put a ganache layer under the cheesecake. Oh my..

So, next is cheesecake batter, right?


Well, that was a great idea.

Well, that baked up real purty-like.

Wait, we're still not done. Don't go anywhere!!

Yeah, that's right. There's ganache both above and below on this monster. It. Was. Unreal.
