I have so much to blog about. Seriously. So many thoughts all day long and my blog itch kicks in. But then; nothing. I really need to find a way to actually get the posts out on the actual blog. To get it into words and collect my thoughts. I guess it’s because I keep getting interrupted by everyday life all the time.
Also, I have 2 or 3 things that I would like to get finished unrelated to the blog, that are really starting to irritate me now. It’s constantly a stress and I know I would feel so much better getting it done and “archived”, outta the way. But as soon as I get a bit of time over to maybe do a little towards finishing it off – I DON’T FEEL LIKE DOING IT. How frustrating!
I feel like I’m running around all day long like a headless chicken. Busy all the time but not getting anything done. Spending so much time in the kitchen nowadays as well. When my friend Mattias was here he commented on the fact that I was in the kitchen busy with stuff all the time. He’s right.
And it’s not just cooking. Because of all the cooking our kitchen look like a war zone at least once every day. Minus the blood. (As there’s no meat anymore – get it?!) I feel like all I do is pack and unpack the dishwasher. I want a maid. So I can just cook, experiment, make a mess and then someone else comes in and clean it all up while I’m busy enjoying the food with my family. My time is too precious to clean kitchens, or any other part of my house for that matter. I need to outsource. Hehe…
I’ve tried so many nice recipes and haven’t shared any with you. Both food and niceties. Made these chia seed cookies full of protein and chocolate, well raw cacao. Made some weird tasting ice cream (having another try tonight with a different recipe and our ice cream maker – I have to use it I dragged it here all the way from the UK, just to find one exactly the same at Lidl.)
My favourite right now (and even before this “challenge” thing) is fried mushrooms. Jon usually reminds me; “I thought you didn’t like mushrooms?”. When we met I didn’t really. I guess I hadn’t eaten them enough, or maybe I had a bad experience with canned mushrooms, not sure why I felt it wasn’t for me, glad I gave it another try. This is great though; some mushrooms fried in olive oil, chili flakes, garlic pepper and sea salt. LOVELY!
