Summer Snippets

2 Comments

Dear Blog and Readers, I’ve missed you. As cheesy as it sounds it’s true. I took a much needed blogging break this summer but I’ve been itching to blog.
When I compare this summer to last year, I can’t believe I blogged as often as I did. I remember editing into the late wee hours of the morning. Crazy.  This summer was definitely different in that respect. I didn’t spend as much time in front of the computer.
Instead of doing a big big post today, I’m going to keep this one short and give you a taste of my summer through pictures. I’m thinking of it as a way for me to ease myself back into the blog groove.

I went to Chicago to celebrate my 28th birthday.

Egg, Avocado and Mixed Veggies

Marinated Tea Eggs, Avocado, Carrot, Cucumber, and Spring Mix

I wanted to UP my veggie intake and balance out the inbalanced meals out. So, I started packing more salads for lunch.

Food & Memories. Had this exact tiramisu 7 years ago with the same friend I had it with on this summer's night.

I went to a few BBQ’s. Nothing like a night of DEELICIOUS ribs and cocktails.

Fountain. Make a wish.

In Berczy Park, I made a wish and tossed a penny into this fountain. Hope it comes true.

I looked around more.

The thunderstorms and hot humid weather of July only made me appreciate the cooler weather in August that much more.  Overall, I cherished blue skies and was thankful for the sunny moments.

How was your Summer?

I love food, people and cats. I love reading about people's kitchen adventures, taking pictures of it, and sharing it with good company. I enjoy strolling, playing with cats on the street, chewing my food slowly, playing in the kitchen, curling up to a mug of hot tea and laughing with friends. This blog will include things I've done, eaten, seen, my interests, and anything else I can dream up. My hope is that you will find something you can perhaps relate to or enjoy during your visit here. Welcome to my world.

  1. Can u share ur reciepe for green juice and do u make it in a blender?

    • Hey Dee!

      I really should share that recipe. I’m going to do it as one of my next posts – thanks for the idea! And yes, I do use a blender because I don’t have a juicer. So I blend and strain it.
