Tuesday Morning, Still full

Yesterday for dinner we had a sort-of-goulash made from tomatoes Mom left when she visited, and apple crisp made with apples from our tree. There’s a sense of happy homeyness about that that I love.

I patched T’s jeans the other day, and I’ve been looking up canning and other food-preservation. It makes me feel like I’ve come full circle. Which (along with a conversation with cluudle) has brought me to a thought I had in college, a magazine I wanted to publish.

The ideas are a little vague after *cough cough* years, but, loosely – a sort of practical Mother Earth News / Foxfire / different ways of doing things. Both how-tos and, if I get brave enough, histories and interviews.

If I were to do something like that, what sort of thing would you be interested in reading about?

  1. I think there should be a column about ‘stories from my house’ about finding random steamer trunks and homemade apple crisps and things.

  2. That sounds like a fun idea. The thing I’d be most interested in is “how to use crap you have on hand that you have no purpose for.” Cookingwise, craftswise, etc. But home crafts in general are nift.
