I can't blame my editor this week. He edited but I forgot to post this one until now. But here's another week of family meals during a pandemic.
Well, I still haven't moved my grill outside at the new place. But I am loving my new kitchen. All of my stuff fits, and there is still cabinet and drawer space available. It's awesome to be able to get to all of my stuff without going into storage or having it piled all over. … Continue reading Quarantine Week 27

My journey with bread baking continues to be fascinating. I've had some failures. I've had some successes. I've had a lot of fun along the way and I feel confident enough to try this crazy thing.
We made it through another week of this adventure. There were a couple of burns and a few less than totally successful cooking moments, but we are still going strong in our little bubble.
