Do you ever get into a full-blown food obsession? Like, you cannot stop thinking about said food and you must have it on a weekly or even bi-weekly basis? When a craving hits, there is nothing in this world that will satisfy it except the real deal? At your hungriest moments, said food is all you can freaking think about?…
I have such a love/hate relationship with this time of year.
I have said for years that I find January and February to be the most depressing months of the year. Not only is the weather bitter and gray, but the holidays are over and we all go back to the daily grind. That said, it’s also a wonderful time for reflection and hope. Reflection on the year passed and hope for the future. A renewed sense of purpose and motivation, tinged with the melancholic acceptance that another year has gone by…and gone by FAST….
Hi, hi! Happy 2017 to you and yours! Here’s hoping for an amazing new year. 2016 was not my favorite year, but I have a lot to be grateful for. My healthy, happy little family. My job. The fact that my fridge and pantry are always overflowing with food. And this little blog space. Despite some not so great stuff taking place in the world, I am choosing to be as positive as I can. To be as grateful as I can….
Is anyone else still in a food coma?
It’s officially the holiday season, and we kicked things off RIGHT on Thanksgiving. Lots of food, bloody Mary’s, champagne, wine, and family. We promptly followed that up with visiting a Christmas display on Friday, followed by a delicious lunch out. Then, on Saturday we started decorating our own house to the nines…followed by another delicious meal out on Saturday evening. The only thing we’re missing at this point is our actual tree. We get a real one, and last year, we bought it a touch too early and the darn thing was practically dead by Christmas Eve. So, we’re holding out until this weekend to get it up….
