I have really noticed that when winter comes I tend to with drawl a little and reflect. I guess this is my way of hibernating. Then I notice that I have done that and I then make a extra effort to come out and let others know what I am doing, learning, and thinking. I don't know if that is because I am so tired from what I did in the fall or if it is the season influencing me. We have had a funny winter like so many others. We have been hovering around freezing and I wish It would just make up it's mind and "be" winter. We like it about -4 to -10*C about 20* F is nice. It makes the snow powdery and easier to drive in. But at that same token not TOO cold either.
I have been learning a lot about my new way of cooking by using Nourishing Traditions and blog sites that base their recipes on that style of cooking. I have been making bread, cream cheese, buttermilk, fermented bean spreads and so much more. I wanted to share my bread recipe but I have one little hang up. I have stopped using olive oil while baking and I am trying to learn how to have light and fluffy bread while using butter instead. I haven't nailed it quite yet and I hope to real soon. As soon as I do I will share my recipe, I promise. But before I do that I will have to show what is on my knitting needles and in my yarn basket. I hope you are warm and happy where ever you are.
