I took an unexpected hiatus from blogging this spring. I had the misfortune of experiencing a severe car accident in late April. I was on my way home from work and in the blink of an eye I almost lost my life.
Without dwelling on the details, I'd call this life-changing, to say the least. The "problems" that I stressed about before the accident are clearly in perspective now. Health, safety and family come first.
Anyway, all drama aside, I'm still dealing with some injuries, but I am back in the kitchen and I'm returning to my job. I haven't done much cooking over the past six weeks and I haven't been in the mood to take many photos, but my mom and husband took great care of me. Now that I'm getting back to normal E and I just made our weekend grocery run and I'm looking forward to cooking on the grill.
I managed to plant my culinary garden back in April. I wrote about it in this post.
April to Early May:
Today, June 10th:
|My garden exploded!|
|I have a crazy amount of sage... and it's a perennial, so I've had this same plant for 3 years.|
|Strawberries! Unfortunately, the goldfinches love them. Any tips on how to keep them away?|
|I can't believe my tomatoes are already this big.|
|Zucchini blossoms... this is my first time growing zucchini.|
I can't wait to share some new recipes. I have a lot of cooking to do now that I'm finished my Ed.D.! I've never appreciated my life as much as I do now.
