Been There, Done That

I figured out at some point that I tend to try new things, figure out I can do them (or can't) and then be done with them. Mainly cooking kinds of things these days.

  • Last year I made a lot of ice cream and I haven't made any since.

  • This summer I made some crackers. They were pretty good, and they're easy enough that I could make them pretty frequently, but since I know I can, I don't feel the need to.

  • I also made a bunch of pickles this summer. Most of them were okay. I haven't broken into the pickled skapes yet...

  • Over the last two weeks, I decided to make truffles. They are probably an experiment not yet complete, but they're also hard to screw up, so I think that might be getting checked off the list now too.

  • Today, it's pumpkin seeds, though I haven't yet decided what to do with the pumpkin.

  • Many years ago it was riding a motorcycle. That was fun, until I didn't pass the test, which I'm okay with. I feel that if there is ever a situation in which I must ride a motorcycle, I'll remember enough to get away (because its gotta be like riding a bike, right?!)

If you've got suggestions for the next things to try, let me know....
