A new post. I know. I kinda can’t believe it either. Mostly that I’m so excited to share this that I’m posting from my phone in a car driving back from Seattle (no, I’m not driving).
Not sure who will read this, afterall it’s been almost a year since my last post, but I really have gotten back into the kitchen lately and while I can’t promise the regular posting from before, I am going to try and do some more new recipes for you (well, me).
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.
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.
