thelifeofclare Inspired by @littlebubalishka, I made sushi. We're running low on sushi fillings, so these had roast pumpkin and ricotta. Was pretty good actually. 2d

thelifeofclare Our afternoon snack was FREE, save for some time and effort.
Smoked salmon; caught yesterday, salted and smoked today. Mussels; picked this morning, cooked in pine needles we collected while we were out. Cider; juice from apples we scrumped from local trees (our old rental before anyone had moved in), fermented with wild yeasts.
This is living! REAL food! I know what's in it, I know where it came from, I know it intrinsically. This is what makes my heart and soul sing.

thelifeofclare We used the pine needles we collected to cook some mussels that J got while paddling this morning. A layer of pine needles, then you arrange the mussels hinge side up, around and around in a big circle. Then pile the pine needles high. Light it on fire and the mussels cook. We saw it on River Cottage and thought we should give it a go. 3d

thelifeofclare This is real food. Hand kneaded, home baked sourdough, homemade halloumi, eggs I picked up from the nesting box this morning and bacon we waited 2 months to eat. There's love, time and our energy in this food. It is so great because we KNOW it, absolutely. We know our food inside out. This meal is what I live for! 4d

thelifeofclare This morning calls for quinoa porridge, chia seeds, banana and a BIG spoonful of honey, with a spot of colouring. I know that I need to slow down, so I'm having some down time.

What's your favourite way to slow down?
