When I got to Kodiak, I had no intention of buying baking supplies. It seems really silly to buy even one bag of flour to be in a place for just a month, but then – I ended up with more time on my hands than I expected, and without any knitting (also a mistake), I got fidgety to start baking. Baking, as I’ve talked about, is very soothing for me. Obviously I like eating the results, but the sheer physicality of mixing the ingredients is just very soothing to me. It appeases some strange animal part of my brain that needs things to do with its hands, and I love it.

Folks, let’s be honest – it’s all but summer time here, it’s the end of the semester, and any excitement I might have had about school has long-since been tempered by days in the eighties, too much sunshine, and the possibility of baked goods. After a certain point, there’s just nothing to be done but watch a whole season of Friday Night Lights and spend the whole weekend baking. It’s totally possible that I should have been writing not one but two papers this weekend, and got incredibly side-tracked instead. Read the rest of this entry »

Remember how I said my last post wasn’t about resolutions? It wasn’t. I did try and make some goals or resolutions for myself this year, though. Or at least for this semester. I’m really trying to go out and do things, as a way to make myself feel more settled, and maybe encourage myself to begin to feel more content here. So, I’m trying to go to classes at the gym. I’ve never been a big gym-goer; I’d much rather be out running, breathing in the clear air, out cycling with the wind in my hair, or hiking with the pine needles quietly crunching under my boots. I’m still trying to do those things, but I really wanted to take yoga, and so I did my first class this week. It was sort of arduous, and I’m incredibly sore in places that I haven’t been sore since I was dancing regularly, but it was very enjoyable, and I’m definitely going back next week.

Butternut Squash Cookies

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am having a very serious love affair with butternut squash. This is somewhat funny to me, because up until my junior year of college, I didn’t even know that I liked winter squash. Zucchini? Sure. The yellow equivalent of zucchini? Absolutely. Especially in pastas, stir fries, quick breads; you name it, summer squash was more or less my thing. Winter squash? I turned my nose up at it. I don’t know if it was because it was a roasted vegetable, and up until then, my picky palate had despised the thought of roasted vegetables, or if I couldn’t quite get beyond the apparently mushy texture, but it was way not my thing.
