We have been working on Cooking Kind for about a month and a half now. Josh has been working on recording his cooking projects, which have been part of his daily life, forever, as I see it. I have been helping him with the some of the planning, the cooking, the transcribing, the photographing, the editing, and the posting. I always help him with the eating, and sometimes I help with the dishes. We have been dreaming, scheming and trying to understand this blogging journey we have embarked on. We started the blog so that we could record the recipes that Josh develops. Cooking and eating is our constant adventure, and now we have combined that with the adventure of blogging. We are still learning in what ways the process of blogging enriches our experiences in gardening, foraging, and cooking, and we are learning in what ways it distracts us from them. I have a love for writing and photography, which we share, yet I feel rusty in both and with working on this blog, am hoping to continue to polish our crafts.
There is also the matter of a beautiful fall day and enjoying ourselves. I want to share that too, because I want to remember that this blog is a part of the adventure which is of course bigger than the blog. We have fun exploring the world, being curious, and seeing, tasting, understanding food together through close observation. This afternoon, Josh and I drove out to his family’s land to look for more blewits and puff balls.
On the way there we pulled over to strip mall to look at this leafless tree whose apples made it looked like it was decked out for the holidays. Josh ate one of the apples and I had a little bite, it was sweet.
We did not find any puffballs to eat, but I did enjoy kicking an old puffball, creating this yellow puff of spores in hopes of finding this field full of puffballs next fall.
Josh found this pretty mushroom on a walk. (Josh says it is a shaggy mane.)
Then he danced in the milk weed.
We are glad you are joining us on our adventure. We look forward to sharing with you, hearing from you, and collaborating with you.
Thanks everyone who has been reading and looking at our blog so far!
