When It Gets Really Busy...

...I find I don't have nearly enough time in my kitchen. April? It's my second busiest month at work. August is the worst, but April? It's pretty darned rotten, too.

I just finished up two weeks with work days ranging from 12 - 18 hours. I'm pretty beat to the core.

However, life manages to toss me a nugget of happiness in the form of a day off work tomorrow. Hello, vacation day. I'm going to love you more than your mom loves you. Truly.

The weather doesn't intend to cooperate this weekend, so it appears that instead of planting tomorrow, I'll be grocery shopping and putting together a neat little care package for my sister's final week of finals in college. It also means I'm going to have a bit of time to come up with a really rockin' set of recipes that I can start sharing again.

Even if you're not excited, I am. I miss this here blog when I'm away. I miss the smell of paprika on my fingers. I miss the grime I have to wash off my cutting board. Heck, I even miss the pain that is finding natural light to photograph with in my kitchen. Now that's saying something.

I guess what I'm trying to say in a roundabout way is that I apologize for being a bit MIA. I really am going to get back on track.

In the meantime, I think I should recommend something to occupy your time. If you haven't heard of it, let alone seen it, I think you should feast your eyes upon Spaced. Glorious British comedy is what you'll be getting. And I hope you'll fall in love during the first episode, just like I did.


  1. Finding that natural lighting seems to be the hardest part of blogging sometimes. Electric lighting just doesn't do the trick.

    Looking forward to more recipes! I hope your day off goes swimmingly.

  2. Hey Jess, I couldn't find an email for you on your blog, but I was just wondering: would it be alright with you if I linked to you on my blogroll?
