We are home from our travels! I have to be honest, I couldn’t wait to start cooking, I kept a little notebook with me and wrote down every time I was inspired to cook something new and delicious! A few months back my sweet friend @thedaleyplate made a salmon that sparked an idea for this creation and thanks to her you can now find several styles of Gochu Jang chili paste in my pantry I loaded my sauce with vinegar, tamari and garlic, mustard and sambal, I even used a little apricot jam for sweetness. Head up to my blog for the recipe! This dish including the noodles I made to go alongside took all of 25-30 minutes. It’s healthy and filling and PERFECT! Now go get that recipe!!!! #rusticjoyfulfood
In this recent trip to the Arctic Circle, I discovered 2 things : 1) Northen Light tours are quite the scam and 2) If we spend less time chasing the elusive, you just might discover something even more beautiful that is right there all along. Meet the Arctic Sunset :
Right at that time of day when the sun sets against the clear blue sky, the horizon is a band of gold that fades to crimson, to fuchsia.
Nature at its best.
So lesson of the 2017 was : Don’t sit there and wait for something to happen, go out and make magic happen.
