Hey there. It’s been a while. All’s good, just hectic since I started my new job.
This past week was full of wonderful surprises. A call from a sorely missed friend. Last minute tickets to see Alvin Ailey. An invitation from a chef to her birthday party where I got a sneak peek at her upcoming cookbook (I’ve already pre-ordered a copy). And lots of getting-to-know-you time with a pair of babies and catching-up-with-you time with their mama.
I was on the phone with another friend who, after I bubbled over with excitement telling her about all the good things that had happened to me this week, reminded me, “Good things are always around you. You just need to be open to them.” So, while I haven’t been able to tote my camera around much these days, I wanted to share a few good things that I captured with my phone since January.
No recipe today, but don’t worry though, there are some lemon macaroons just around the corner.
The mug I use in the office for tea with milk.
Salted pumpkin caramels to fuel me through a day working from home.
Salted pumpkin caramels, an hour later. And yes, I’m still in my pjs.
Biscotti and gelati day at work. There was vanilla, lemon, and peanut butter chocolate chip gelati. Lime and dried cherry cornmeal biscotti. And experimental lemon black pepper cookies.
Passover in Miami.
And waffles. Who doesn’t love waffles?
See you back here soon. Happy Monday, everyone.
