Can you believe that March is here already?
The last few weeks have had a lot to do with healing. Resting. Allowing my body to get on with looking after me, as I look after it. I’m so glad that I had to cut down on my work days last year. It has been a bonus to be able to take my time at home. If all I feel up to is sitting on the lounge, winding wool, then that is enough.
Some days the weather has been beautiful, with the doors and windows open for a lovely fresh breeze. Some days, not so much. Today is grey, overcast, raining, but still not cold yet. Refreshing late summer/early autumn type rain.
And I am warm and comfortable inside. About to have left over Butter Chicken that *skip* made on the weekend, with my very own naan bread made last night after work.
I have been slowly dipping my toes into the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day book. It’s a fascinating theory, can you really make something as complicated as bread, so easily? I have long avoided bread since my breadmaker died, as the rising, kneading, resting etc just shouted at me TIME!! that none of us have to spare, lets be honest. So I wasn’t expecting great things to start off with. I was sure that I wouldn’t be able to make it work, that without someone to hold my hand, that I would mess it up. Well, the book comes very close to holding your hand, if in doubt, they have a comprehensive website as well. And you know what? It really WAS that easy. Really.was.easy.
And a huge hit! I have at least one friend queuing up for some hand-holding lessons, and I’m sure that as I share more of the food I am creating, she won’t be the last.
Oh, yes it does. Learning how easy it is to make Chicken Tandoori topping for your pizza. Huge yum factor. Got to keep the hungry hordes happy 😉
