I am behind on my blogging. My back is better, which is definitely a relief, but life keeps throwing me unexpected curve balls. Out of the blue, where I work has changed and I no longer have flexible hours, so I'm getting used to a totally different schedule and working in a new location. I guess it will take some time. There was another big change that makes me sad, but I guess it's all for the best. Life is rarely predictable and I have to keep going with the flow. Change is the only constant.
There is one thing that I have come to rely on that gave me something sweet during this past week. A recipe from Asha! About six weeks ago, I found a recipe for Cardamom-Raisin Quick Buns here. This past week I coudn't manage much, so I needed a really easy recipe. The one sort of tricky part was crushing the cardamom seeds. I tried using a mortar and pestle, but it was taking too long, so I put the seeds in my coffee grinder. I know that's supposed to be forbidden, but after this week - yeah, whatever.
This is a great recipe. No adaptations needed. The buns are delicious and were so quick to make, just like the name. Today is a warm day, so I'm going to get outside and enjoy it and maybe start reading "The Prophet" by Kahil Gibran, which Suldog reminded me was a great book. I've had it for months but haven't read it yet. So like this book, maybe I will realize one day soon, that what I need or am looking for, I acutally already have.
