Things have still been a bit crazy around here…not much time for cooking. I am ITCHING to get back in the kitchen! Our friend Rich gave me a tupperware full of figs last night, and even though we are staying at Gavin’s parent’s house, and I don’t have access to my normal kitchen things, I found some sugar and made a small batch of fig preserves as a little tester. (I have never made preserves before, so I wanted to make sure they turn out before I share the recipe)! They turned out great…so be expecting some figgy goodness here soon.
Even though I haven’t done much cooking lately, I have still been reading blogs…and I came across this awesome slideshow from TIME Magazine. It is highlighting a new book called What I Eat “a thought provoking portrait of individuals around the globe and the food that fuels them over the course of a single day.”
I found it very interesting…I love learning about food in other cultures, so this article sucked me right in!
