This marked my first week back to real life after the holidays. The holidays were wonderful, fun and even restful! I ended up having a lot of unscheduled time off the week before. I left work at noon on Tuesday (New Year’s Eve) and did not go back to work until Monday of this week!…… Continue reading January 2014
As the weather forecasters promised, Thursday morning we woke up to snow. The snow had actually started before we had gone to bed on Wednesday night – around 11:30 PM. It snowed all day on Thursday… Thankfully on Tuesday I had gone to Wegman’s and picked up ingredients for Ina’s winter minestrone soup, bread, milk…… Continue reading Snow Day Birthday
Since I have been not working my normal 8 AM – 5 PM, Monday through Friday gig, I have been doing a lot of cooking for people. Last night I made an elaborate birthday dinner for that someone special.

It was really very cold on Sunday. Monday it was a little bit better. It was only in the 20s when I went to the gym on Monday morning – a vast improvement! I really had to force myself out of the house and I got to the gym and I ran for 35 minutes.…… Continue reading 2012 – Day 16 (Monday recap)

On Sunday I was able to celebrate my friend Nicole’s birthday with her, her husband Tim and her mom. Tim is an amazing cook and a huge fan of Jacques Pépin – so I knew that we would all be in for quite a birthday treat when I was invited over for lunch. We started…… Continue reading Sunday – a fantastic lunch
Hey all – I hope you all had a decent “back to work” / “post holiday” Monday! Things in our house got off to a decent start today – until we stepped out of the house and realized that our entire neighborhood was covered in a huge sheet of ice! Some how I managed to…… Continue reading Back to the Grind and Birthday Celebration #3!
