Almost… I’m actually coming to you from Sycamore this week. I’m house/dog sitting and get to do a bit of “country” livin’ in my old neighborhood. I actually do miss Sycamore sometimes. It’s slower pace out here, quieter, calmer, and really quite beautiful. While I love my Chicago neighborhood, it’s nice to come back and slow things down.
It’s also nice because I get to work in a huge kitchen and take food pictures with all the natural light. This house is a bloggers dream. Or at least this galley kitchen, two-window, interior apartment-dwelling blogger’s dream. So be on the lookout for some good food pics in the coming weeks…
I’m working on a few new recipes and I was thinking of a few ideas. I honestly put recipes on the blog that I cook for me and Adam. I don’t usually go out and create something that he or I wouldn’t eat or make regularly. While that sometimes limits what I put on here, I think it also shows how a real home cook prepares meals. I’m not a trained chef or even a professional recipe developer. I just put things together that sound good in my head and I think would taste good.
With that in mind, I was thinking of reworking one of my favorite childhood meals. My mom’s leftover casserole. She would make this a few days after Thanksgiving and it was almost better than the Thanksgiving feast itself. I just have to figure out if I can gear it towards the healthier side of things…
I know I’ve said this before, but I am going to work on putting more meals that have meat in them up here. I don’t personally eat meat, but Adam does and I do prepare a few dishes for him that he really likes and would make good weeknight meals. I want this to be a place that anyone can come to and find at least one recipe that will fit their lifestyle, tastes delicious, and is healthy.
I hope that you are getting back to your regular routine without too much fatigue. That first Monday after a holiday can be a rough one. At least it’s cyber Monday and there are awesome presents that you can buy while still in your PJ’s!
