Sometimes the most wild thing to do is let it be, let things be broken, accept them and not try to fix them.
One book, that I really enjoyed this year was Cheryl Strayed's Wild. I thought it was a honest account of an interesting adventure. I am curious to see how the movie will turn out. I would love to go on a big hiking/camping trip, one that I could take John and Lexi. I love to be out and about walking outside with my two loves.
I just threw together the ingredients in a jar to make some simple mustard. This could be a start of something beautiful. I get such satisfaction in making things myself. Mustard is the top of my limited list of liked condiments. I love many foods. I am not a fussy eater but I wouldn't have much love for ketchup, brown sauce and barbeque sauce. Having Crohn's doesn't allow me to eat as varied of a diet as I would like, this I don't mind most of the time. This also has me making many of the foods that I do eat from scratch because some ingredients in processed foods I am unable to digest.
I haven't made the courgette loaf yet. I got some Dove's gluten free white flour yesterday. Think we have a bumper crop of courgette/zucchini, so I am looking at recipes of courgette chutneys to make. Last year, I had a lot of cooking apples after going apple picking and I reckon the best thing that I made and what was the most useful was the chutney. I made apple butter also but I rarely eat gluten free bread. I suppose I mostly use jam for baking. I do want to make some berry or rhubarb jam.
I made mincemeat for mince pies last year. It was amazing and smelled amazing, the house smelled like Christmas should but I don't know if I will make as much mincemeat. I need to find some glutenfree suet. The chutney was handy. I gave some jars away and it was used a condiment and also as an ingredient in cooking chicken and salmon in the pan. I guess I could always make a batch of apple butter and mincemeat then make a lot of chutney.
Need to let the mustard soak for a while. I used black mustard seeds because that is all that I have here at the moment. Looking forward to trying a few different mustard recipes.
How wild is that?
