Happy to Be Back!

Thank you for your well wishes, your demands (ahem, Drea), and your patience! Here I am! First, a short digest of what's been going on.

A move (we all felt this way):














Beautiful new surroundings (Our Hero and I have climbed that mountain several times now!):














Aaaaand, a high-speed chase ended in our front yard. No better way to meet the neighbors, I say. You can't see it in this (very poor quality) picture, but the truck hit THREE trees in our yard, like a pinball. Amazing. It was all complete with the guy attempting to escape. Very surreal.














Indeed, things are well. Our Hero has started his work nurturing the minds of the young, and I have been puttering, filing, labeling, budgeting, alternately panicking and relaxing, reading, hiking, swimming, and . . . cooking of course!

I'm excited to get the blog rolling here again as we ease into harvest season. Farmers' Markets here are plentiful, and this weekend I spied the first squash of the season! My father made the mistake of calling me and asking what to do with a squash, and I'm afraid I went on and on and on and on, exciting myself as I shared about pasta sauces, soups, pizzas . . . I'm doing it again. Better quit while I'm ahead.

In any event, I will be posting regularly again, and can smell my next post finishing up in the oven as I write. Stay tuned, I'm getting in touch with my roots by making Basque-style stuffed peppers.

You know, your kitty looks a lot like our kitty! :-) Though, she often likes to lounge on my laptop, stinkin' cat...LOL

yes, cats have a way of sleeping right where you wish they would not sleep. thus far, she has not invaded the kitchen (when it comes to sleep, anyway). good to hear from you!

I just found your blog at random. A link from someone else's I imagine. I love it. I cooked 3 meals from it last week. Glad you are back to inspire us. We are in Kansas.

My husband loved the Spicy Sausage bowl from a while back. We put Collards for the greens and Italian Sausage instead of the Chorizo. It was awesome!
