Three weeks ago I talked about how creatives express their creativity in many forms. Today, I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing, other than writing.
Since that entry of 28 May:
I made Chili Pot Pie.
This is my version of a recipe came from the Central Market website: Hatch Chili Pot Pie. (Recipe no longer available on their website) Since I made it vegetarian and updated the veggies to accommodate my taste, I have no recipe to share. Oh, and I added more heat. Love a spicy chili!
I baked Little Flower’s Tomato Ricotta Cake.
I’ve been wanting to make a tomato cake for a while, and I finally broke down and did it. Don’t let the tomato. It was great, and the Tomato Jam – Yum!. Next time, I may try a different frosting, but then I don’t like my desserts too sweet. I got there recipe from the Food52 website: https://food52.com/recipes/61888-little-flower-s-tomato-ricotta-cake
I also baked some Lemon & Rosemary Shortbread Cookies.
A little taste of spring! These were super light and perfectly merged two of my favorite flavors: lemon and rosemary. Oh, and butter. Everything’s better with butter. (Yes, even the vegan butter I use.) The recipe came from another food blog I’m fond of following: Tasteofhome.com – https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/lemon-rosemary-shortbread-cookies/
I planted a garden.
I began growing a few veggies in pots on my patio. Since they continue grown, I’m expanding. I now look forward every morning to walking outside to water, feed, trim, and check-in on my little garden.
I picked up my embroidery needles.
I used to do a lot of needlework, but it slid away as life got in the way. It’s taken a bit of time, but wrapping ribbons and threads around needles and through fabric is once again a relaxing outlet that keeps my mind working even when cuddling with the hubby and watching a movie.
What are you doing to keep your creative flowing?
