Most of the Time

“Most of the time…I can handle whatever I stumble upon.”

This song by Bob Dylan came on my iTunes this morning as I was drinking my coffee, alone, in my living room.  I know it’s about a breakup, but that one line really hit home with me. Usually, I can handle whatever comes my way; I can juggle several tasks with ease.  But lately, I’ve been feeling like I’m juggling entirely too many sharp objects.  I just can’t manage to find my rhythm.  Forgive me.

I’ve felt a distinct sense of guilt lately for not posting much on this blog.  The fall semester crept up on me when I wasn’t looking and I fell into reading two novels within the first month of classes.  I have been cooking and musing, believe me.  I have.  And I’ve been taking photos, as well.  I just haven’t placed any of it on the blog.  Here goes, in short form:

I made “shelf” dill pickles, in which I filled the jars with cucumbers, various herbs and spices, and topped them off with the vinegar/water/salt/sugar solution.  At that point, I kept them open (covered with cheese cloth) on the shelf of our pantry for 4 days.  Now, they’re sealed up and in the fridge.

Then I tackled something I like to call a banana bread cake.  It tasted exactly like banana bread and it was outstanding.  AND it was a layer cake!  AND it had sauteed bananas and butterscotch caramel in it!!  Right?!?!?


And finally…I finished up my Worcestershire Sauce.  Yes, you read that right.  I made my very own Worcestershire Sauce!  It was quite the experience: procuring all the necessary ingredients, boiling them all together, and then letting it “ripen” in my fridge for 4 weeks.  Weird.  Delicious.  Amazing.

I promise, most of the time I can handle whatever I stumble upon.  Stick with me.  You’ll see.
