Stef and Roxie just arrived. Our little family is together in the OC for a few days.
Even if you didn’t know Stef was expected, you’d know something was up based on the state of the kitchen this afternoon. Every pot was out. The sink was full. The aroma of fresh food was everywhere.
Homemade soup tonight. Pasta with a homemade sauce too. This is the good life.
We brought homemade cookies to our neighbors yesterday. Today they reciprocated. No wonder people complain about Christmas weight gain.
I was skinny when Helaine and I first met. Consider me living proof of her expertise in the kitchen.
Last year was tumultuous for us, culminating in a 2600+ mile move. Things have started to calm down. Home cooking and baking are signs of stability.
