Lemon Ginger Paella

 For the past couple of weeks,  I have been  exploring cooking with miso soup. It started innocently enough with slow cooking bison sliders in miso soup.

The miso soup brought the bison to a new place flavor wise. I added a dash of lemon juice and ginger to the bison and it was super yummy.

It has inspired me to continue down the path of cooking with miso soup. My present miso challenge consists of making a paella inspired dish using short grained brown rice.

I cook 3 cups of  brown rice per the instructions on the bag. Once, the rice has finished cooking, I drain it in a colander and run water over it. Then, I place it in a large skillet and mix in about 2 cups of miso soup.  I add in  2 tablespoons of lemon juice and toss in 8 small pieces of sliced fresh ginger. I place the burner on a low flame and cover the pan. I let the paella cook for about an hour. Stirring it about every 15 minutes.

This dish tasted so good that I had to stop myself from eating it all in one setting.

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
