Kreative Cooking

Over the past several weeks, I have been struggling with Kreativity. I know YOU all know what I mean.

I struggle to find the time to indulge my Soul when the inner House Frau seems to beckon louder than my more sensitive Muse. That House Frau received a good dope slap yesterday!

While I hope to ignite that Muse this weekend .... I started last night by cooking something that I used to eat quite frequently as a little girl. Since both DH & I are of Lithuanian descent, both of us enjoyed what I call "BAHB-KEE" & what he calls "KOO-GLEE-US". It is a potato dish with tidbits of salt pork.

The weather was cool enough to warrant this rib-sticking side!

Shredded potatoes, onion, eggs, seasonings, salt pork:

I cooked it for an hour in a cast iron pan that HAS to be at least 70 years old!

It was YuMMy ... and quite a surprise for DH when he came home from work! Suffice to say - there is NONE left this morning.

I need to perfect it a bit & I can't wait to taste my experiments!

The amazing thing I noticed: Kreativity happens daily in moments we let slip by. We need to recognize & embrace those moments ... they are delightful tidbits for the Muse to feast upon!

Ooo, We may like that! Will you post your recipe when you have it perfected? Please? :) I so agree...creativity can and should be a part of everything we do. I'm not sure how to clean the house creatively, but cooking is definitely better when you do it creatively! Great post!

Sooooo tempting!

My creative muse has been on vacation lately...spindling for the Tour D' Fleece has my head spinning and my creativity on hold, actually. Deadlines to meet, goals to reach, all that brings to mind just why I don't usually knit or spin for other people. All those expectations seem to chase away the Muse... :o(
