What Hobbies And Talents Do You Have?
#1
I used to like English Horseback riding and some low jumping. I also used to love to do oil paintings. I don't do either anymore. Recently I did paint a few Miniature Schnauzers on my wallet and purse, hoping to sell a few to others. I wish I could play the piano, but I can only play variations of Heart and Soul, and two handed chop sticks.

I used to like going to dog shows and a little of showing my one girl. I like antiques and looking around antique stores. I also used to go to a gem show in my former state. Got expensive but now I have a lot of rings in 14k gold, worth more than when I got them 11-15 yrs ago.

What do you like/do when not asleep? Here is my painted purse.

My hobby is making wine. I make wine from grape juice, fruit juice and vegetable juice. I make about 80 gallons of wine a year. Most of my wine is aged for a year before bottling. This hobby has taught me patience. Each step of the wine making process takes time and can't be rushed. My favorite wine is a lemonade wine to which I added ground raw ginger prior to fermenting. At Christmas I give away a lot of wine to friends and family.

I used to be a potter. I miss it. I've been thinking of getting some clay and making things pinch pots or doing some slab work. No way to fire it but it'd be good to play with.

I am a ham radio operator.

I work with my dogs. One is my retired service dog and another is one I am training to be the next on.

Other than that, I play games and write. I have no life.

Paula, just as a thought, the craft stores have the clay you can "cure" in your home oven. I know it is not the same and you can't actually use them like with real clay, but it does make them much more resistant to being destroyed accidently!

My talents? I've been told I am a fair cook. I have several people wanting me to write a cookbook as I make my own recipes. I don't know if that interests me or not though because I like to cook, not write! LOL! I also fool around with digital photography, both still and video and creating DVDs from the results. I have some good software for this and I purchased this system beefed up specifically to be able to edit videos and make DVDs.
As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

I've been called a fair cook, too.

Sometimes I cheat, and use box mixes - like tonight I'm doing Tony Chachere's Jambalaya, with chopped up leftover chicken and pork chops. And a bit of "pepper stick" that a friend makes up - like sausage sticks, with jalapeno peppers and moose or caribou meat. The perfect jazz-up for jambalaya.

But though I cheat with the leftovers on occasion, I get the leftovers the old-fashioned way. I work with many types of meat, from pork shoulder of beef brisket, clear on up the line - I even managed a fair job of cooking Kobe. But I prefer to leave that to the experts!

Many types of stews, chili, curries... and believe it or not, after a few days, when that big stew gets boring, you can turn out a great batch of enchiladas with it! Casseroles, particularly good old Mac n Cheese...

I used to bake a lot, and for a while baked all the family's bread products, even hamburger/hot dog buns and dog biscuits. Too much work; I was unemployed at the time.

Italian, Mexican, Thai - I once threw a curry party, knocking out made-to-order Thai curries for about 2 dozen guests using four omelet pans on the stovetop at once. Choose chicken, beef, lamb, shrimp, tofu - add peppers, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, carrots - Thai basil and several other fresh herbs - choose your curry paste color, red, green, yellow, or go masaman - with or without coconut milk - rice-cookers standing by with jasmine and white or brown basmati... I spent 4 hours at the stove, with everybody oinking out, and even managed two batches for myself. Yellow chicken and masaman lamb. Yum!

Not much on desserts, though. I've done some cheesecakes, including some with no cheese; let whole-milk yogurt drain a couple days and you can make a cheesecake with one-fifth the fat of cream cheese. The only sweets I cook nowadays is creme brulee. Its a sort of Zen thing, a very simple dish that is yet subtle and a challenge to perfect. There is some of my coconut creme brulee in the fridge right now, for tonight's dessert. All I do is swap about half the heavy cream for a can of Chaokoh coconut milk - the brand that, in my experience, most closely matches the texture and thickness of the heavy whipping cream.

Obviously I LIKE cooking, too. I better stop before it's time to go to work in the morning ;-)

But not before mentioning pressure cookers! I have eight, and have at one time had four going at once for a really big stew - meat & shrooms, taters, carrots, and beans. That was four days before the enchiladas!

Jambalya time!

That's something I need to get one of these days. I just have my big pressure cooker for canning. I have used it for cooking very large items as well as canning, but this thing is a real monster and what a pain to clean! It's so big it doesn't fit in the sink! LOL! I need a smaller size. Problem is I never think about it until I want to use it! ha!
