what i cooked | april

asparagusApril. What a month. Don’t you love months that throw you for a loop in the best way possible? That was April.

On a Monday at the beginning of April I was informed that we would be driving home for a couple of months… the next day. So I packed (I’m becoming quite pro at last-minute packing), we drove, we arrived, and I started doing all the things (except cooking/baking). It’s been wonderful so far, and I can’t even tell you how glad I am to have at least another whole month of this.

Just so you know, I do hope to spend some more time in the kitchen in May. And I do hope to post more here. A stack of cookbooks from the library is sitting on my floor and there are so many recipes that I’m eager to make!!

And now if you will excuse me, I’m just gonna go eat lunch at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants… :)
