Well now, I didn’t expect my last post to be such a pity party. I’m sorry about that, but I’m also floored by all your wonderful comments. I guess the stress of my real life was poking it’s way into my blog life, but so it goes.
I know my life will get some relief once next weekend is over with. I’ll be participating in the One of a Kind show which is a large (read: massive) art/craft show where I’ll be sharing a booth at the Vancouver Convention Centre with 2 other lovely ladies. I guess I wasn’t prepared for all the work involved (like buying carpet, painting hard walls, having enough greeting cards and calendars for 4 busy days of dealing with the public, etc., etc.). My nerves are a bit shot, but I’ll get through it.
As you can probably figure out by all the photos, I’m currently obsessed with sweet peppers. More peppers? Yup. More pickling? Uh huh. While my last fermented pickle experiment was only semi-successful, this is a very safe and sound “quickle” and they’re rip-roaringly delicious. Crunchy, flavourful and perfect.
