The best cure for writer’s block is to write through it. And so I shall try. Thus this blog post serves a dual purpose. Planning for the blog, and writing my way out of Stumpville.
Later this month, I plan to post my November Caturday post, most likely featuring Stella.
1) Book Reviews
In the books category, I’ve found I really enjoy reviewing e-book(s) from bloggers I follow. I’ve written a review of Kate Singh’s e-book The Homemade Housewife so far and I can’t wait to add more reviews to the category.
If all goes well I should have another e-book review up next week. I’ll give you a hint: it may have something to do with Louisa May Alcott 😉
2) Celebrated Authors
A few of my favorite authors have birthdays later this month, so I plan to do at least a small post about them next week.
In the food category, which people seem to be loving lately (which is great!) I aim to make a new, slight change to my posts this winter.
I was looking at this blog, My No-Fuss Kitchen, which I thought was really cool, as she, the blogger, saves money on food by making stir fry dishes of leftover ingredients. Her dishes are also inspired in part by her Chinese Malaysian heritage. There were a lot of ingredients in her dishes that both intrigued and suprised me.
I’ve been looking at more ethnically diverse food dishes lately and really appreciating the variety and different flavors that these dishes all have.
So this winter I want to make it a goal of mine to make a variety of dishes that are more common in other cultures.
I’m excited to learn…how do people in other cultures save money on food? What ingredients are staples in other countries? What new flavors will I learn about? I’m looking forward to it.
Will you join me on the journey? I hope to post one new dish I’ve tried each month, starting in December (next month).
I will share a photo of the dish I make and make reference to the book or blog post where the recipe can be found.
So *counts on fingers* Caturday, Books, Food, and of course there will be some posts in the Motherhood and Reflections category (those categories where I share deep thoughts and lessons learned).
Oh and maybe some sewing projects will make it to a post or two. Sewing is one winter indoor activity that I’m learning to love more these days.
And maybe some more Nature posts if we manage to brave the cooler air to explore outside. Can you see me tapping my fingers, waiting for my kids to get over their colds?
