The fridge magnets are on the door so I do feel that we are settled to some extent. There are a few boxes lurking in the bedroom (three, I believe) that await unpacking but mostly that task is over. I even unpacked a box that had been lurking since the move from Knoxville (in 2003!).
As far as cooking goes, the classes are going a pace. In fact, some are mostly sold out. I am loving the students and the experience. The curriculum is challenging and varied enough to keep me interested but not so labor-intense or futzy as to put off anyone who just wants to dabble a bit in making a goat cheese salad or something.
Our meals at the house have been a little hit and miss. Mostly hit as I get used to the new oven. I have also made some seriously sleepy and shouldn’t be cooking mistakes. The first Sunday I cooked for just Keifel and I, we had blueberry biscuits because I forgot to put the sugar in the muffin batter. They were good with some butter and jam, but they definitely weren’t muffins. And while getting used to the oven I made popunders this past Sunday, trying to figure out the preheating cycle on the oven which seems to take forever and the batter sat too long, I think, in the pan and cooled. Keifel and Julian ate them, again with more butter and jam. Amazing what some creamy dairy and crushed fruit can cover, isn’t it?
In other news, Foodieporn HQ has joined a CSA (Community Sustained Agriculture) and will be getting boxes o’ fresh goodies once a week (we are picking up at the Farmers’ market). I am very excited about all the organic produce and free range eggs and whipping up on-the-fly summer food with whatever’s in the box. I am planning to post CSA box goodies and recipes when the harvesting begins in May.
I am hoping to be back to posting in my semi-regular manner as my sickly computer should be home some time this week. Thanks for hanging in there.
