Changing seasons and chili dogs

Episode 3 of Melrose Sheltering in Place dropped yesterday and I'm very happy with it. I mean, it's kind of funny that we managed to talk for 88 minutes about an episode that was 44 minutes long, but I had such a great time recording it and listening back today.


Obviously it was a ridiculous episode if this came from it.

My original plan for this morning was to go over to Japanese Gulch but I noticed every time I got up to go to the restroom last night that it was raining. Most of the trails there get way too muddy which is why I mostly go there in the summer. We'd had a lot of dry days in a row before last night but it wasn't meant to be. I went to Big Gulch instead, which is well-kept and has a lot less mud.

Did I mention I'm into shrubs now? If you don't know, they're vinegars with other ingredients added used to flavor beverages. Since we aren't drinking alcohol lately I wanted something besides water, and while I like bitters in LaCroix, shrubs are way more flavorful.


They're not cheap, though, so I'm trying my hand at making my own. Right now a batch with ginger and mint is seeping away on the kitchen counter. I'll let you know how it turns out.
