|Knitted slipper boots|
Fall has arrived here in southern Ontario, and we already had a couple of cold and rainy days. So when a lady on my local Facebook group posted about similar knitted slipper boots recently and her post got more then 100 comments, I got so inspired that I needed to make them.
I knitted them with Red Heart brand bulky yarn.
I used this free pattern by Yuko Nakamura to make the slipper part. And I used this free pattern by Garnstudio to knit the cuffs.
The good thing about them is - they would fit any size from pre-teen to ladies size 9 as they are very stretchy. I added two chocolate colour buttons as a little finishing touch. Let me know how you like them :-)

Ukrainian style preserved tomatoesI am feeling very excited about my blog post today :-) It is a recipe of Ukrainian style preserved tomatoes (with vinegar, sugar and salt).
Almost every mom and baba (grandma) in Ukraine makes these in summer. I have been making these Ukrainian style pickled tomatoes for three years now. My family loves them, and there is never enough for the winter.
I make these at the end of summer when I can get a bushel of really nice roma tomatoes. I got mine from a local farmer this summer.
