Happy 2013!

Wide eyes.
Where did the past two months go!? (I'm resisting the urge to panic... moving on...)
Where have I been?
How was your holiday?
What resolutions have you made?
Excellent questions friends...

I know how ridiculous it is to have a blog, and then ignore it for two months. I know. But what I didn't know was how ridiculous it was to have a blog, and a job that schedules you for overtime for over a month, and be a full time student. Yeah, I didn't know how ridiculous that would be. Sure, on paper, in a calendar, it was just fine, and thirty minute breaks here and there, or that unclaimed time before bed or before rushing off to start the day, seemed like the perfect time to squeeze in a post here and there, but alas, those precious moments dry up quicker than anticipated. Shucks.

So all I have to say now is thank goodness for the new year, and the arrival of our slow season. And the arrival of time to do things like blog. And cook for fun. And sleep. I'm mostly excited about the time for sleep.

Needless to say I have made plenty of dishes in the past months, but failed to photograph them out of sheer necessity to move on to the next task on my prep list. So until I have some pretty food photography to share with you, I'll share instead a photo of my very first Christmas tree - I was such a proud mama!

Happy New Year!
