I'm also attempting to sort out a schedule for myself, when I started this, it was kind of an impulsive decision. I really enjoy it and I'd like to have some consistency in my posts, for all of us really. That's something that's hard for me to do regardless of how much time I have on my hands.
Basically it's a learning experience.
I also have to come to terms with how "sustainable" I want to be. I can't afford the level of sustainability I would really like to be at right now, at least not year round. Once June comes, Garden of Eve's (my favorite farm - they're organic and super friendly) farmer's market will be open and I'll be able to stop there weekly for my vegetables. Right now I'm tied to the meager offering at the supermarket, and while Stop n' Shop is better than Waldbaum's, I'm not well-versed enough to know what's in season. And even if it is in season, it doesn't necessarily mean it's coming from a location that makes sense.
I am also trying to figure out how to incorporate photography into this blog. I love photography, but I am not very good at it yet and I also don't feel like I should have to set up a professional photography shoot every time I make a meal (how do you people have time for this??). I also don't have a partner who is a professional photographer nor am I, obviously, one myself. I take decent pictures but let's face it, they're hardly magazine worthy. I also find that taking pictures of the process distracts from my cooking. Which I dislike. Dinner also happens late for us because of Dan's hours and sometimes my hours, so I never get to photograph in natural light and I can't afford lighting equipment.
There's a lot to be thought about that I did not think about, basically. And it's not enjoyable when I'm struggling to stir, take good pictures, and get everything to the table in a timely fashion.
But I have herbs in pots ready to grow into my kitchen garden and we've had some good weather for fun walks. And look out in the future because there is definitely more to come in a brand new location.
I will leave you with some images from our walk on Nassau point a few weekends ago.
