Are you a mad scientist? An individual who mixes anything you can? An individual who tries it many different ways?
Science was one of my most difficult subjects all through school - no matter what variety, however, experimenting in the kitchen has never been that difficult. I have (at least as I've aged) enjoyed trying new recipes, swapped out ingredients to see if it would work or how the taste and/or texture would change. I'm still not able to explain the ology's in life (sorry Mr. K and Mr. O and many others), but have decided that's ok. I do know that it works to use applesauce or bananas in place of eggs in some things and honey as sugar and well, there are other things too.
My latest experimentation project has become breakfast. Now, it's not because I am one of those dutiful people who gets up each morning, works out, makes a healthy and nutritious breakfast and goes on about my day. No. I'm not that person, but there's a little contest and I can be THAT person. Yes, my competitive edge does come out occasionally.
As many of you know, I live in Denver, CO and St. Francis, KS - alternating weeks. One of the bed and breakfasts in St. Francis is holding a little contest. Although I've never stayed at the b and b, I have been inside and have been to events which have included some of Kate's delectables. Needless to say, the competitor in me is not going to enter and show up with bacon or sausage, eggs and toast. Oh, no, I have to do something different. Hence, the experimentation.
The deadline is this upcoming, quickly approaching Saturday and I have not yet mastered the plate, but have not given up hope - you know that crazy little thing that whispers in your ear - go ahead - try one more time. I'm still trying.
As I sip my coffee and write to you, I have parts of one of my breakfast favorites - with a twist - in the oven. If it looks as amazing on the plate as it does in my head and is equally as delicious - it will be the winner! If not, we'll move on to the next one. Yes, I've had ones that haven't worked as I thought they should and yes, I'm trying to keep in mind, a variety of diets in order to have something that will be different, but the masses may enjoy as well.
Back to the stove, oven, cutting board and spices I go. Stay tuned...I'll let you know my decision and "hope"fully my entry!
"To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world"
When I set up my website and blog under the author section it reads "Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview." Whew - cuz that's all I've got for the moment. I'm a pretty simple person who lives life lovingly. I care deeply and am passionate about many things. I have always had a spirit of (I'm going to call it) entrepreneurship so have been self-employed about as much as I've been employed by others. This is a place where I share thoughts, ideas and happenings. I'm finding that sharing my story (life) helps me as much or more than it helps others and I find that empowering. Keep doin' what you love and lovin' what you do! XO-KM
