Scarf for Bella Mittens

May 17, 2009

For those of you who are looking for a food critique, we didn’t go anywhere new last night.   We went to Smith’s again.  As always, the food was wonderful.  Three of us had stuffed scallops and Paul had stuffed chicken.  He always has to be different.  The spinach, asparagus, Cole slaw and macaroni and cheese were perfect.  And s o were the rolls.

I made this to go with the Bella Mittens.  I had most of a skein left and I was still able to make a four foot scarf.  The cable pattern made it possible to slip one end into the other at any position.  I cast on 18 stitches.  I knit three stitches, did the cable, knit three stitches.   It was simple.  I used a size ten needle.

Smith’s Restaurant

April 5, 2009

We went to Smith’s last night.  If you’ve never been there, it’s on Route 13 north of Greenwood.  Heading north, it’s on the left.  The interior reminders me of a finished basement from fifty years ago and all the neighbors come over. 

Where should I start?  First of all, they serve real iced tea.  The rolls are good and endless, but they didn’t have the sweet potatoes biscuits this time.  The stuffed scallops and blackened catfish were superb and the fried chicken livers were very good.  He said the sauteed ones he got before were better, but these were very good, too.  We’ve been here several times and we’ve always gotten good food and good service.  Even the vegetables are good.   I’m told the spinach is exceptional.  I can’t eat spinach and kale.  We have never gotten dessert, but they look delicious.

Our friends won’t be around next week, but we will probably go somewhere.  We are hoping to go to Suicide Bridge in two weeks.
