We took a walk into the woods while making four additional spice blends, using all manner of ingredients.
Recipes. Scales, skillets, and grinders.
The mixtures before toasting and grinding were reminiscent of what one might see on a path while walking through the woods.
It was a family affair.
All together we created five spice blends. Baking Spice, Za’atar, Garam Marsala, Barahat, Five Spice.
Yes, it was a woodsy walk in the woods.
The scents created by toasting and grinding were intense. Exotic. Amazing!
This family project was such a delight!
Last night we enjoyed grilled Za’atar chicken. It was SO delicious.
I am now airborne, crossing the Rocky Mountains, watching live women’s basketball, headed home. I’m so blessed to have had this time with my Seattle family. Abundance colored these past five days. Smiles and laughter were constant companions to our conversations. At the heart of all of it was time around the dining table, enjoying incredible meals with those I love.
