Weekly Geek Task Four:
What are you passionate about besides reading and blogging? For example, are you crafty (knitting, woodworking, scrapbooking, model building)? Do you cook? Into gaming (computer or board)? Sports (player or spectator)? Photography? Maybe you like geocaching, rock climbing? Or love attending events like renaissance fairs, concerts? Music? Dancing? You get the idea. Tell us why you’re passionate about it. Post photos of what you’ve made or of yourself doing whatever it is you love doing.
If I have to rule out everything book related (finding, selling or researching books, reading blogs, etc) then the thing I like doing most in my spare time is cooking. I love good food, and knowing exactly what is in whatever I’m eating is very important to me. I love making and decorating cakes with my little boy. Here’s the cake I made for his third birthday:
I’m not really very arty, but I managed to make this by following this great tutorial.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I bought my husband a sausage making machine for Christmas and we have really enjoyed making them from scratch. We mince our own belly and shoulder pork, and then experiment with different flavourings. My favourite so far have been pork and apple! If you’re interested in making sausages then everything you need to know is here.
Not only does homemade food taste better – it’s cheaper too!
I highly recommend you give it a go!
I had a quick look at all the other weekly geekers pages. I was drawn to Fizzy Drink’s page, as I love travel too. Seattle looks great!
I was very impressed with The Ax For The Frozen Sea’s tattoo’s – beautiful! – but I bet it hurt!!
