I have been delinquent in all things blog this summer and for that I apologize. But it’s not my fault. The letter E has taken over my life. I’m not kidding…
- Raven, the kitchenaid and I evacuated my apartment, bringing all of the craft supplies with us. Yep, we moved out.
- There have also been many excursions. See, I found the very best seafood risotto in the world at a restaurant called Sarafina’s in a little mountain town… And then Dan and I bought a vacation house in the same little mountain town. Coincidence? I think not.
- I wanted to cook some pasta so I put a pot of water on the stove. I checked the knobs twice to make sure I turned on the right burner, then I walked away. A little while later I began to smell burning plastic. I yelled a few expletives as I ran back to the kitchen where I found that the burner that the leftover apple blueberry crisp was sitting on was red hot and the plastic wrap was melting. A few more expletives escaped as I turned the stove off and looked for a pot holder to move the pyrex pan off of the hot burner but before I got two steps away from the stove BANG!
The pyrex exploded. I screamed. And then I cleaned up all of the broken glass and explodey crisp. No one was hurt in the making of this explosion. Well, except for the last bit of apple-blueberry crisp… and the pyrex pan.
- Lastly, but not leastly (is that a word?), I have been excited and elated. Why? I’ll give you a hint…
Need another clue?
Well, Dan put a ring on it… or in other words, Dan and I are engaged!
And that is my summer of E’s. I have several recipes I’d like to share with you but they will have to wait until next week because Dan and I are off on another excursion tomorrow: we’re backpacking in Yosemite.
What have you been up to?
