I am so excited!! I finished my new scarf today and just in time for cold weather too. Yeah, I make my own scarves. I have to. I don’t drive and learned very early on that those fashion scarves that are barely long enough to reach your boobs are cute but not very warm. I need warm.
Since I couldn’t find it to buy it, I decided to make it myself. I have crocheted since I was 12, so I decided to put the skill to use and make myself a warm scarf. I have made several over the years. Whenever I get a new jacket or just feel like a change I make a new one and give a way the old one to the first person who admires the new one. That way nothing goes to waste.
Do you have any old-fashioned skills you put to use today?

Adapted from Mark Bittman’s How To Cook Everything
salt and ground black pepper
2 bone-in chicken thighs
1 ½ tsp minced fresh ginger
1 TBS plus 1 ½ tsp coconut aminos
1 TBS dark sesame oil
1 TBS plus 1 ½ tsp olive oil
1 TBS fresh lime juice
1 ½ tsp chili powder
¾ tsp smoked paprika
1 TBS coconut milk
1 TBS smooth almond butter
¼ tsp curry powder
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Move the oven rack to the middle, if it isn’t already there. Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Put the chicken in the roasting pan, skin side up, sprinkle with salt and pepper and brush with your sauce. After the chicken has cooked for 10 minutes, baste again with the sauce and turn the pieces; brush the other side and roast for another 10 minutes. Turn the chicken over, brush again with the sauce, and roast for another 5 minutes or until the chicken is done.
