Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. ~Confucius
Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just baggage enough. ~Author Unknown
After spending an inordinate amount of time messing about with recipes for lemon curd, I was really surprised to find, on a bag of Meyer lemons, the most uncomplicated recipe ever. Instead of putting a time limit on stirring the juice and sugar and eggs into silky smoothness, there was just the simple instruction to stir the mixture over boiling water “until it thickens to the consistency of pudding”.
That one word, “pudding”, transformed the whole process of making lemon curd into something easy and intuitive. Who knew?
The tart was the final course of a meal prepared for my aunt and uncle, during which I told them about my impending cross country move.
After spending an inordinate amount of time messing about with jobs I just can’t seem to get into, I’m packing everything up and moving to the West Coast. I’m going to try pursuing some passions and working to support those passions and see if I can’t light that proverbial double boiler under my uninspired arse and get those creative juices bubbling. I’m scared, I’m nervous, and I’ll miss my family and friends, but I’m also excited and ready to get going on a simpler, (and I’m sure) more productive life.
So there it is. Post #100. Exciting things happen in the (almost) spring, don’t they?
