New Blog

Sorry I am behind but I wanted to catch anyone who comes to this old blog.  Join me at my new blog - Seeking Sanctuary At World's End.  You'll notice some of the information I share is from this blog.  I'll be slowly transferring my recipes from here to there.  Once that is complete then this blog will be no more.  I hope you have enjoyed Living Between a Rock and a Hard Plate but that you'll enjoy Seeking Sanctuary even more.

New Website

My new website has been fully designed and ready to go.  We'll be going live on May 21st so until then you'll have to wait but I wanted to touch base and let you know that I haven't forgotten.  I'm writing some posts about what I've been doing lately and next week we're heading west to spend several days foraging along the ocean.  I can't wait to share but all that will be on the new site.  I'll keep this one live for awhile longer so I can move my favorite posts over - this time with pictures so you can pin it if you like.  I am bursting to share my new site with you and have to restrain myself because if you go there, there's nothing fun to look at yet.

I got nothing

I'm struggling with this in-between time of finishing this blog and starting the new one.  I have been so busy that I don't have anything to share and I want to wait to write the great posts for the new site (isn't that just a terrible thing).  I'm stuck.  It happens.  Life is in transition and I can't really move forward until all the parts are in place.  The domain has been set and the site is being built.  I love the creation of the site and that's consuming me.  I like the art of it.  The content will come later.
This Saturday is the first Farmer's Market and we're working towards that.  I can't wait but we'll be busy getting ready.
Forage season is starting and Sunday is a mushroom foray that I hope means the start of mushroom season here in the Palouse.  I have discovered Oregon Grape and now I see it every where.  It will be a long wait before the berries come and we'll have jam and juice for the first time. 
We're leaving for holiday in two weeks and that means days of clamming and crabbing, seaweed and sea salt as we're on the northern beaches of Washington.  I can't wait to try some foraging there - mushroom and fiddleheads are on the plan if we can find them.  I'm thinking of trying some new things such as sea cucumber and snails but there's a huge ick factor that I need to get over first.
I'll post the new site as soon as it's up but here, I'll be getting rather quiet until that final fateful day when Living between a rock and a hard plate says goodbye.
