    1.*What bag/accessories are you carrying (items + colors, pics always welcome)?

    I’ll list what I happen to be carrying this week (and not necessarily carrying all at once):

    Utility Tote in Storm 1000d Cordura
    Two Caches for my two laptops (it’s a long story involving my fast and intense typing)
    An early sample of the Shadow Guide
    3D Fabric Cube in Northwest Sky
    Nik’s Minimalist Wallet #2 in Coyote
    Small Padded Organizer Pouch
    Coyote/Mesh Mini Organizer Pouch
    Small Cafe Bag in Parapack watercolor camo
    The Truck in Forest 1050d (we only made one sample: it’s too difficult to make out of 1050d)
    Small Zip-Top Shop Bag in Black

    2.*What are you reading?

    Caribou Rainforest by David Moskowitz
    Homo Deus by Yuval Harari

    Next up:
    Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body by Daniel Goleman

    3.*What are you playing or watching (movies, theatre, video games, etc.)?

    First seasons of:
    Barry (HBO)
    Forever (Amazon)

    I think I’m the last person to have discovered Fixer Upper and I’m almost done with all five seasons.


    4.*What are you listening to?


    Two of my favorite artists — Anna Calvi and Blood Orange — came out with new albums this summer and those are still in heavy rotation.

    I’m enjoying all of the Klezmer stations on Spotify. Plus, of course, the Forum-sourced playlist for the TOM BIHN crew.

    5.*What are you cooking/baking/drinking?

    I just received a shipment of fresh dates from The Date People (one of my favorite small businesses). The dates are so fresh it’s almost like eating caramels. I use them in some baking projects — banana bread, German chocolate cake — but mostly I just eat them on their own.

    Cooking: pizza, takeout this month. When I cook at home…. rice (or quinoa) and beans and vegetables. Burrito bowls, saffron rice with vegetables, that kind of thing. Avocados.

    Drinking: Esther’s (seamstress here at TB) Cold Remedy tea…. simmer lots of fresh ginger and jujube dates for half an hour. Drink!

    6.*What are you making/creating/doing?

    I’m doing my best even though it’s December to get my hands in the dirt and garden here and there — transplanting plants, pulling weeds, planting new trees.

    Fiona and I are working towards her next Trick Dog title. She’s naturally good at (and likes) tricks and thankfully is incredibly patient with me (I am not naturally good at training her how to do tricks.... it's a lesson in humility) Currently working on: bow and “ring a front desk bell”.

    7.*Where have you gone lately?*-or-*What travel destinations are on the horizon for you?

    I went camping in Idaho back in September. And next year….. Hawaii!

    Bonus Question: Since it's the season of giving,*what is your favorite charity?

    I love this bonus question!

    Conservation Canines
    WildEarth Guardians
    Frankie’s Friends
    Electronic Frontier Foundation
    Mary’s Place

    @Darcy, is this a hint of some new fabric soon to debut? Even if it's not, please share a picture with us. It sounds very intriguing.

    Do you have a favorite recipe for it that you'd be willing to share? It sounds delicious! I've heard of it but have never had it.

    Welsh rarebit recipe for aedifica

    You will need

    Equipment

    Small saucepan
    Smallish wooden spoon or stirrer
    Spoon measures for half teaspoon, teaspoon and tablespoon
    Grill, or if you're in North America, broiler
    Measuring scales
    Cheese grater or sharp knife to cut up cheese into small chunks

    Ingredients

    Two thick slices of nice bread, I use a brown cob loaf
    112 grams of mature cheddar (sharp cheddar) grated or cut into chunks
    1/2 teaspoon mustard
    1 teaspoon plain flour
    1 teaspoon Worcester sauce (sub 1 teaspoon water if you haven't got Worcester sauce or don't like it - it's not vegetarian)
    2 tablespoons of milk OR one each of water and cream (beer is traditional here but since I don't like beer, I don't use it)
    And consider also
    A nice glass of wine or beer to drink with it (having alcohol with cheese prevents indigestion, or at least in European tradition What Are You Carrying? Rainy Autumn Edition (11/2018))

    Instructions

    First make the cheesy bit.
    Put all the ingredients except the bread into the small saucepan and put on a low heat. Stir it round with your wooden spoon or whatever until everything melts together into a thick cheesy goop, a few minutes. You don't have to stir continuously, but I wouldn't walk away from the hob either.
    When the cheesy stuff is all melted together, turn off the heat under the saucepan and turn your attention to toasting your bread.
    When you have made your toast to your liking, spread the cheesy goop onto the toast. Do not spread right to the edge or it will run off the edge and make a mess. Put the whole thing under the grill (broiler) for a couple of minutes until bubbling with a few brown speckles.
    Eat while still hot and gloopy, marvelling at your culinary accomplishment, and chase it with a beer or glass of wine.
    If you are feeling particularly hungry, eat both slices yourself, or if less so, share with a lucky friend What Are You Carrying? Rainy Autumn Edition (11/2018)
