New Year, New Projects
Well, now that we are almost one month into the new year, I am back to the blog! Hopefully for real this time....although during my pregnancy I learned that I am not very good at sticking to internet goals, so I certainly won't be making any for myself while I have an infant at home. On that subject...V and I welcomed a baby boy last month we named Silas.So this leaves me lucky enough to spend my days watching my baby grow, thus limiting my time for any projects. But we still have to eat. And since I spend much of my time in front of the computer reading and feeding someone else I have become a bit more food obsessed than usual lately. Oh and I've been eating chicken. and some bacon. For anyone who knew me years ago this is probably shocking news! I will say I limit my meat consumption to supporting farmers who are raising meat organically or locally or if someone happens to bring over something I want to try... I know that often cooking is one of the first things to go for new parents, but I really look forward to it and plan for it. forty garlic clove roast chicken, pecan chicken breasts, banana bread, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with walnuts, risotto, oven fried zuchinni These are some of the things I have been up to when I have a minute. But, my pottery is always on my mind, so I have created a new project for myself that I can do from home and combine with my food passion/obsession. I am going to be cooking new recipes and photographing the results in/on my pottery. It's a great way to showcase my work. I am also going to submit the really great results to Tastespotting, a food website I love to skim through and get ideas from. I am also going to share some of my recipes as well. I have also been drawing as you can see from my new header photo-my other project to keep myself busy is one drawing a day....I'll be posting those too, but for now I must go feed someone!
