Yup, I know. It’s been a while. Like, a thousand years in blog time. My dad passed almost 2 weeks ago. It’s been too much for me to even think about cooking, let alone coming on here and sharing fun stories.
Will I be back? I hope so. I enjoy sharing recipes with everyone and being in my kitchen. But it is a lot of work and with the new teaching gig and everything else, it is a bit overwhelming.
I am excited for the class to start tomorrow night. At a real University. With undergraduate AND graduate students. I’m hoping they challenge me.
My laptop is fixed! I am jumping for joy right now that I don’t have to buy a new laptop which is 100% success in my book. I also did some cooking this week, with one total fail, like had to throw in the trash fail, so that’s good. Fails actually make me happy, though that sounds counter-intuitive.
Anyway, there’s this 25 question challenge going around the internet so I figured for lack of any pretty food pictures or recipes I would bring you 25 things about me. Because really, I’m just that interesting.
I was craving something creamy and flavorful so I went online to my favoite food bloggers to find some easy chicken casserole recipes. Turns out, most of them wanted me to use a cream of [fill in the blank] soup from a can. Yeah… no.
Things here have been incredibly crazy and there’s been a lot going on so I haven’t been posting (or cooking). Not to mention technical difficulties while I try to get my home computer up and running again.
But I’m back this week with all new recipes, so stay tuned!
I spent most of last week trying to eat up everything in my fridge in preparation for a cleaning and big shopping trip. Trying to budget and stay on track means I have to plan very well, and when I see things languishing in the fridge, it makes me see dollar signs heading into a trash bag.
I need to tell you all about the boy I am head-over-heels in love with.
This was not a relationship I was expecting to feel this strongly. I have had, and still do have boys in my life, but the permanency and depth I feel for this one is different from any who have come before.
When this boy smiles, my heart sings. When he is sad, my heart breaks. I hate being apart from him.
Every time I’m with him, I feel like I’m learning something new. Some unspoken secret that many have heard before me, but that only now am I lucky enough to hear.
