Girls in the Kitchen

So, we've started a thing. We call it Girls in the Kitchen. And we love it.
The first Wednesday of each month we all rush over to my place as soon as we can after work & we hang out in my lovely little kitchen & create. And laugh. A lot. And learn. And Share.
Tonight was our third time. In past nights, we've done sprouted whole grain bread, sprouted crackers (which we liked so much we did again tonight)....dang, I'm getting old! Can't remember!
Anyhoo.... tonight we did Thai Coconut Soup for dinner, Sprouted WW Crackers (in the oven, not dehydrated - much tastier! And we also did Strawberry Freezer Jam. 2 Batches, one with sugar & one with honey. For each we also filled a couple jars & then added a jalapeno because we are partial to having a spicy jam with our standard Cheese, Crackers & Wine. We used Pomona's Universal Pectin. I can't wait to see how it came out, and I sure loved not slaving over a hot stove stirring & stirring....

Me? Well....I have a day job selling travel to beautiful far away lands, and I love to travel - my job sort of supports & feeds the 'travel monster' inside me. But my other inner monster is: food in all it's facets. I have a 13 yr old DS from a previous life, and married the lovely JoeBacon a three years ago! I finally became a home-owner at that point, we did a huge addition/re-model right away to make the house a bit bigger & I got a wonderful new kitchen out of the deal! I've gone thru Culinary School twice (mostly for fun) 'cuz I love to cook! And thru reading/doing the Maker's Diet 2 years ago, became aware of Sally Fallon, Weston Price, etc...and now after about 9 months of exploring their world, I'm trying to really make it all part of mine. I've had some things turn out great & others have been miserable failures, but I'm learning a LOT (mostly from my fellow NT Bloggers)!! Now I'm enjoying my yard, garden, sprouting, baking bread, brewing Kombucha, using raw milk, making Kefir & Yogurt & just trying to find small ways to make yummy food better for us.
