I love food. And I love traveling. One of my favorite parts of traveling is food. I know, this is a big shocker. But I truly believe that you get to know a culture, a people, in a way that is very intimate through their food. Like let's just look at the United States. I … Continue reading Meeting through Food
I am getting more and more comfortable with going back into the world. We are still wearing masks regardless of the new CDC recommendations. I think I mentioned that I might stay in one for a while. But I am relaxing about it a bit. I'll go outside in areas I'm unlikely to run into … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life (Week 59)
Oh I am perpetually behind on these. Life is busy these days. Since we are no longer totally locked down, there are the trips to grocery stores, patio dining with friends we've missed, and work is crazy busy. I think all of these things are good...somewhat stressful as I adjust...but they also really take away … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life (Week 58)
That title alone is anxiety producing. Don't get me wrong, I am excited. I am also very nervous about what life looks like when we can exit the bubble.

Living in Chicago, I know it could still snow again, but I think it's definitely close to time to pull that grill out of storage and get myself set up downstairs for some summer grilling and … Continue reading Quarantine Week 48
I debated actually posting this one, but here ya go. It's only kind of food related.
With Christmas almost here, I did a little cooking...okay, maybe a lot of cooking. Thursday (12/17) - We had take out. I felt like it had been a while and was in the mood for something new. However, it was very cold and wet out, so we didn't want to have to go too far … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 39
This week was all about packing and more packing. And then the terrible moving day. Then unpacking. I think you can see a theme. I haven't meal planned in a couple of weeks. I lost half the contents of my freezer and my garden in one day. So this is all to say cooking has … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 23
