When kitchen gadgets were perhaps simpler. Note that the idea for breakfast, was that cup of coffee, toast, eggs and I think those are sausages.
When the romantic dream was to camp in a quiet serene lot somewhere, far from the busy cities and towns, perhaps park the car and if transportation is required, there is the trusty bike to pedal to a country store.
Of course the realities of today when we look back on our dreams of a quiet get away, are not as romantic. We have to make time to get a way, we need plan and organize, the darling camper, needs to be found and then it has to be reconstructed to meet one’s needs. Do these small campers have bathrooms, showers, we have to look at logistics, etc. etc.
Important, is our lifestyle such that we can travel with the barest of essentials, or do we need/want more. Will the car we presently have pull a trailer, do we want to stay in camp grounds that seem to be stuffed with other campers, trailers, and families tucked together between trees much like the some of the communities in the city. The only difference being, there are more trees, and likely there is water near by for swimming.
And, let us not forget the pets. We travel with two dogs. where do we find open space and safety for them. As the list of needs and wants mounts up, the reality of that romantic dream coming true fades into the distance.
Life itself is journey, how many times do we hear that said, or alluded to. There came a time in my maturing process where I began to realize that each day was my opportunity to explore a piece of my dream, make it a reality, instead of planing and working at something that may or may not happen, I decided to focus on NOW. I still dream of future projects, but my interest is in today, how I am feeling today, and what I am doing with my time today. Somehow, that works for me, being present in all I say and do means that I don’t regrets, and I work hard at not having expectations. I’ve learned when we expect something, we are often disappointed. The only person that I have control over, in all respects, is myself. I own the actions and choices I make. No more, no less.
Totally irrelevant to anything previous, this bread takes one hour to make. and I want to taste it. like NOW =^_^- It has 8 slices of bacon in it. I’d want more. 1/4 cup of Jalapeno, 3 cups of flour, 1 tbsp baking powder, 2 tbsp granulated sugar 1 tsp of salt, 1 tbsp vegetable oil, 12 oz buttermilk, 2 cups cheddar cheese, 8 oz cream cheeze.
Namaste – Oyashikiri
I’m a confessed bacon addict, if I squeeze a recipe in from time to time, I hope you enjoy!
