Being Creative

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:

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

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?

  1. Since you ask: I write one or two poems each week. I create or copy art in the form of pencil/charcoal sketches and water color. The only “cooking” I do is to microwave leftovers and I make (bake) granola cereal.
    I keep a 3×5 notebook in my pocket to note ideas as I walk and listen to music. Examples of notes: the ravine, rocks, boulders, few trees struggle,; motif in lit. and art, Rosie Queen of corona, a poem to parallel “He’s an Old Hippie.” Sometimes, everything is a poem – sensory overload, chatterbox muse. The duplicity of men. What’s in a name? What’s in a name/title/identity? Boots and sandals…. To find happiness outside my comfort zone. Is flirting harassment? And it goes on…
