I had a most wonderful time away, from the blog and from home. I won’t talk more about it because it’s quite personal. But I assure you that I am back and ready to tackle it again. With fresh eyes, with a fresh perspective and a heart full of gratitude.
It’s been a week since I’ve been back and tonight will be the first time I’m cooking a full meal (breakfast does not count). I’m thinking Tom Yum Goong and Prawn Cakes. Spicy and warming, just perfect for the fall.
Mike was supportive of my staying out of the kitchen and took me to enjoy some delicious dinners – our favorite pho place, chicken kariage at The Cutting Board (thanks, K!) and of course, the fabulous Delancey (one word: burrata).
In garden news, my garden was overgrown while I was away but now it’s all cleaned up. I am hoping to plant some winter greens and maybe get a crop of Asian greens. We’ll see how cooperative the weather will be. This year, Seattlelites should have nothing to complain about our summer.
Oh, my current favorite drink is a Washington hard apple cider – the name slips my mind now but the taste has my attention now.
