My tendonitis is improving but still a little sore. I unknit an entire sweater last week... it was one I made my husband years ago and he never wore it. I decided the task would let me play with yarn and be less aggravating to my elbow. And now I have a sweater's quantity of yarn! I also only have about half a sleeve left on the Julgran!
Just for fun
Every year we make multiple batches of these Peppered Pecans because they are SO good and very easy. These make a wonderful gift, too!
3 T. butter 3 c. pecan halves 1/2 t. garlic powder 1 1/2 t. hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco 1/2 t. seasoned salt, such as Lawry's
Preheat over to 250 degrees.
Place butter in a 2 c. microwavable dish and cover with a paper towel. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until melted.
Meanwhile, place pecans in a single layer in a 9 x 13" baking dish. Set Aside.
Remove butter from microwave and stir in garlic powder, hot sauce and seasoned salt.
Drizzle butter mixture over pecans and stir to coat. Bake uncovered, stirring every 20 minutes, for 1 hour or until the pecans are crisp. Remove them from the over and cool to room temperature.
Store in airtight containers, gift tins or zipper top bags at room temperature up to 1 month. Makes 3 cups.
Pam's Notes: I use Texas Pete instead of Tabasco. I really like Frank's but I don't think it keeps the spiciness for some reason after it is baked. I also use a tablespoon of hot sauce. We usually triple this for gift giving.
