M.I.A.

Yes, I'm alive. As you know... because my handful of faithful readers have all asked me what the heck my problem is. :) I've told them, and now I'll tell you, even though them and you are the same -- I'm just not feeling it. While healthy again, my appetite hasn't quite been the same for a while now. I don't much feel like eating (except dessert, great), I really don't feel like cooking, and, quite frankly, thinking about writing about any of those has given me kind of a yuck feeling. Like when I was in high school and had surgery and had Green Day stuck in my head that whole night in the hospital -- it was a good 10 years before I could listen to them again. I guess this is kind of like that -- food + blog reminds me of the not-so-stellar winter I had of losing my job and being sick. The association is so strong I've nearly just deleted this several times, but that seemed a little melodramatic (plus, I've put nearly three years into this and I'm not quite ready to kill my baby). Things are ok -- don't get me wrong -- but things are different. And I'm still adjusting to the different. And I'm too busy stuffing my face with sweets to write. :) BUT.... that's not to say I'll never write again. So keep me in the back of your mind... and check back in now and again. And thanks again for caring and reading and being the awesome peeps you all are!!

Aww. :) I've missed you! But do whatever makes things easier for you, and if that's not writing, then don't write! And life is too short to not eat sweets. Everything balances out in the end...

Well, I've been fiddling around, and have officially spent more time on here than I have in months, so maybe I'm over the hump. We shall see.... :)

You'll feel it when the moment to write is right again. :-)

Sara said...

Do what feels right. BUT you have to give a few highlights from Restaurant Week for out of towners (i.e. me!).

Oh, and sweets are the best food related topic to read about on a blog. Just saying...

PS I like seeing your basil in the sidebar!

Looks like you've gotten lots of encouragement already, so I'll just leave you with this:

Butt Rocket!

There! Now you have something else to associate this blog with! And I don't even care about that dangling preposition. :)

Love you, chica, and always will.

Awww. I hope you'll come back around, even though I don't cook or eat anything terribly exciting. I still love to see you excited about cooking. :)

p.s. my word verification totally rhymes with boner.

Stephanie said...
