I want some sleep.
Jet lag has really caught up with me on this trip. The past two nights I’ve been waking up around 12am and not falling back asleep for a couple hours. Getting up at 4:30am this morning to catch a flight to Zurich didn’t help my problem. I’ll have plenty of time on the flight home to get some catch up zzzz’s but it doesn’t help me now when I need to be awake and alert for all of my meetings.
I want to make pain aux raisin.
Stay tuned for a major adventure in the kitchen. Pain aux raisin is my absolute favorite french treat. Not too sweet and filled with a tasty custard, I could eat these things all day long. One of these weekends I’m going to attempt to make these. It’ll be a challenge, but well worth it.
I want to get planting.
I’ve got a tiny little spot in our backyard for gardening and after half-assing it the past two years, I’m going to make a better attempt at taking care of my plants and herbs. This starts with reworking the soil and getting some new fresh dirt in there. I’m also going to try and mix up the herbs I plant. The old standards will still be there – italian parsley, thyme, basil and rosemary – but I want to try some new ones. My aunt kindly sent me dill seeds which I’m very excited to plant. I hope to use the dill heads to make some pickles later in the summer. Other than that I’m open to anything. Any recommendations?
