Neglected blog AKA a rapid post of works in progress…
It has been crazy busy around here, and, though I have planned a number of posts for the blog, and even taken a few illustrating pictures, I haven’t managed to write any of the individual posts. So here is a teaser of some upcoming projects:
These are fresh chocolate mint leaves soaking in condensed milk. The homegrown mint leaves are planted in a container so they don’t take over an entire bed. I like to run my hands through the plant — the aroma is lovely. I am also drying some leaves to be used in tea. I will be making some chocolates with this mint-infused milk, as soon as I get an undedicated moment in the kitchen.
Made with the last box of fresh BC blueberries I picked up from Granville Island, these are my blueberry cinnamon buns (seen here posed with a strawberry rhubarb smoothie — recipe by Michael). I have every intention of posting the recipe and no time to write it down.
I participated in Urban Grains’ CSA this year and just picked up my haul — 4 sacks!! — of red spring & winter, white winter and rye flour. I have not found the time to even dream about what I will be making with these flours, but you can guess there will be lots of cookies and breads and maybe even pasta recipes tested soon!
Lastly, a garden update. This is our watermelon which never did grow out of it’s baby form… but it was still a sweet, though awfully seedy, treat!
So that is me for now… there are lots of knitting projects to finish and a bunch of loom projects to take pictures of, but right now I am researching and writing a new feature film script and, unfortunately, work trumps hobbies.
