is that a beautiful pic or what? sometimes, after taking a sky pic for my beautiful Helga, i just stand in a trance, staring at the sky. and i feel tiny. and insignificant. but i also feel purpose. and i also feel that one day i will go home to the sky. am i rambling? i'm tired and it's the middle of the night.
below - 3 big jars and one little jar of fermented beets and daikon radish - we love those! and 2 jars of shredded, fermented daikon radish, a type of korean kimchi, one done only with vinegar and salt, one done with vinegar, salt, ginger and garlic - yummeh! fermented food that is made in your own natural environment, using the naturally-occurring bacteria in your environment is soooo very good for you!
woops - slipped off into one of my trances again...more beautiful sky for Helga.
and more. but you can probably understand why i take so many pics of the sky for Helga. we have beautiful and amazing sky here. and beautiful clouds.
like these beauties.
speaking of beautiful...how about 4 jars of kimchi??? made from scratch and made the traditional way. they lived under my bed for a week, i shook them and watched them bubble everyday, now they live in the basement...in the cool and the dark. these should last about a month if we eat it sparingly...which we don't - bahahahahahah!
yummeh - local sausage, homegrown roasted potatoes, fermented beets, fermented carrots and ginger and fermented daikon radish - this was a definitely delicious meal! jambaloney grills those locally-sourced sausage to perfection. we love these sausage and they come from the NS mainland!
you would think that after attending 3 Thanksgiving dinners in a row last weekend that we would be sick of thanksgiving-like meals. i am sorry but you would be very wrong! i was craving some stuffing, smashed and gravy. here is some home-made croutons, wild rice, celery, apple and dried apricot stuffing.
and here is where it got stuffed.
and here is what it looked like when it was time to eat. these little chickens that jambaloney got on sale last year are divine. grass-fed, free-range and antibiotic-free. oh and local!
love on a plate! mashed turnip with butter and maple syrup, steamed rainbow carrots, stuffing, chicken, smashed and gravy....love on a plate!
want more love? red-pepper infused olive oil. this is after i first made it and it had a nice peppery bite. 4 days later the stuff is so hot and peppery...let's just say a little goes a long way!!! we pour this on our home-made hummus...it is so lovely!
being that autumn really is upon us we will pick the last of the nasturtiums, put some in oil to make a deliciously-peppery oil for hummus and a variety of things, as well as dry some to put into soups and stews over the winter. nasturtium flowers are delicious!!
one last pic for Helga...can you blame me?
