Comfort Cooking

Often, in the dead of winter, every Danish corpuscle in my body will start screaming "We haven't put up any food at all! We haven't preserved a single vegetable! We're all gonna die before spring!" And, seeing as I lack the equipment or patience to do proper canning, it generally comes down to refrigerator pickles.



The red jar is turnips and a few beets for color, such as you may have had at Lebanese restaurants. The orange one is a pseudo-Mexican preparation of carrots with red onion and some slices of jalapeños I grew last summer. The yellow jar is a cruciferous concoction of broccoli stems and cauliflower in seasoned rice wine vinegar.

This is the sort of thing I do to get through the winter depression. What about you? Any tricks for enduring the dark months? I can use all the advice I can get.

i'm w/ chris on the "stomping through the woods" thing, or at least making a point of braving the cold on occasion, especially when there's Actual (if weak) Sunshine.

other than that, apparently i nest. how can i rearrange my space? what Exciting New (and cheap) Furniture can i get to make it more comfortable? what do i not use that i can get rid of (freeing up more space)?

occasionally i'm even motivated to clean tidy it up, although that's a bit of a stretch. >;)

Good advice all around. Not really quite up to that degree of environmental engineering, but I'll keep it in mind for when it gets a wee bit lighter. Nesting in general I can do. I mostly make nests out of blankets and pillows. Twigs and straw. Etc.

Hope you are well, honey. We're thinking of you.
