I apologize for my August-absence! I have barely had a chance to eat anywhere special, or even pick up a kitchen knife. I have, however, made a few tasty treats… which will be coming up on here soon… once things settle down! There’s been a lot going on, and I suppose now’s the time to let you in on the juicy details, so you don’t think just up and abandoned you… (and so you don’t up and abandon me!)
Evan and I entered into cohabitation. That’s right… we moved in together! After 5 years of dating, we finally took that plunge! This month has been insane with apartment hunting, packing, cleaning, packing, moving… I’ve been a bit of a nut-case, and have had zero time to dedicate to anything beyond work and moving… not to mention I have had no access to internet!
We are finally moved in, but are still living out of boxes. The new place has a balcony (yay!) sunlight (yay!) two bedrooms (yay!), A LOT MORE COUNTER SPACE, and newer kitchen appliances (including a dishwasher)! Did I ever mention that when I was cooking up all those delicious meals before… it was sans dishwasher...?
I still have a few more crazy weeks coming up… visiting the ‘rents this weekend, labor day camping next weekend, Brit’s bachelorette the following weekend, and her wedding the one after…but once things settle down I’ll be doing more cooking, writing, and photo-snappin’ than ever before. I even hope to host a few dinner parties in the roomier new abode!
And since I haven’t posted in so long, here’s a little something to keep you interested: happy hour at Ocho with David and Megan, which included an amazing drink that was garnished with a beet skewered on a rosemary sprig, spicy garlic prawns, Patatas Bravas (spicy potatos), Croquetas Borrachas (fried goat cheese), Banderilla de Boquerón (anchovy, roasted red pepper, and fried artichoke), and juicy gossip with fun friends. See ya soon!
