I'm still finding my feet on the blog, and sorting out my voice. I'm partly running off of feedback I get, and partly making it up as I go along. Let me know what works for you, and what doesn't.
That said, I'm moving into winter mode. I'm planning lots of soups for the menu, and looking forward to Thanksgiving, and the pies that come with it. More homemade bread, as well - I'm trying out some new cooking methods, including baking the loaves in cast iron skillets, and trying some inclusions, like cheese and baked garlic. Or dried fruit.
I've done some homebrewing in the past, and yesterday, I picked up (thanks to some friends that really want me to do it) the equipment necessary to make wine at home. Thanks, guys! I've got a kit for a malbec shiraz and a reisling, and will start with the shiraz. I'll post photos of the process, for them as are interested.
Also, I bought some local blackberries at the grocery store today, along with pectin and the rest of the stuff I'll need to render those into some freezer jam. My peach and strawberry jams were hits at home and in the neighborhood, so I have high hopes for the blackberries. Photos of that process will be posted as well.
I've got some thoughts about school lunches and Halloween to post, as soon as I get them sorted out.
