some cooking

It’s a blustery day out there today! The changing weather of autumn – crisp days, cold nights – is making me want to be in the kitchen more and more. I would not refer to myself as a “cook”. But I am slowly finding my feet in the kitchen since getting married. I want to be domestically capable, I want to make yummy treats and excellent meals. The pictures below are two of the “yummy treats” I’ve tried this October. The first was found on Pinterest- I love the recipe ideas there! The mini pumpkin pie recipe originally came from the website “Make and Takes” – and they came out quite yummy! The pizza was my own concoction. I just buy the organic pre-made crust and top it with whatever I like 🙂 This time I tried thinly sliced pear (I forget what kind now!), ham, goat cheese, and a balsamic glaze. Yum.

a walk to clear my head
a watercolor painting illustrating the way I see time in my head
a drive through childhood memories
tacky decorations at the high tide
my favorite dessert when I was 12 (not as good as I remembered… but with an ice cream flavor called “blue goo” what did I expect?? Why did I even eat that? hahaha)
the last weekend of June.
