Writing your own podcast is an effort of trial and error. I think this episode floated into a nerdy-licious wonderland that I couldn’t edit back to center. Not everything is fixable in post.
Talking Pinto Beans with the Kitchen Wrangler
And apologies for the weird color shifting in the lighting – apparently auto-settings are as smart as the person using them. Artifical intelligence indeed. But in that respect, me and my camera are twinning.
It really is a challenge to produce, film and edit these shorts, but I am learning a world of skills that are all very new. I can write, I can talk, but putting them on camera by myself is demanding and yet totally thrilling! I can’t wait to write the next one!
But I will say, I am going to dial back the brain stuff and go back to cooking. It’s more fun anyway, but it will add another layer of work. Bear in mind that the grocery store is 30 miles (48km) away, so more planning, more lists, more steps. But I think I am ready!
It’s exciting because I have talked to other people about helping me put together my video podcast, and I have gotten some really great advice. Trial and error has taight me the most during this process, and most of all, I am really greatful for YOUR feedback! I try to respond to everyone who has contacted me. I really appreciate it!
Last Thoughts on Pinto Beans
But back to the pinto beans, I hope my point was clear. Cuisine is based on what you find around you. Plants adapt to their environment, and people adapt as well. What people find, becomes their food. The tribes that lived in current day New York state never ate catus,m because it didn’t grow there. But in the Southwest, cactus was definitely part of the diet. Different environments support different plant, and then offer different foods.
Thanks so much for watching, even though this is probably my nerdiest episode ever!
