Home - is where I want to be / But I guess I'm already there /I come home -
she lifted up her wings /
Guess that this must be the place...

Getting Mojo Back?

We returned yesterday from spending three days with my family in PA, and for the first time in weeks? months? I sat down a put together a week's menus consisting mainly of new recipes. I'm sure it will be a hectic week getting back to work and to routines at home, but I am energized and looking forward to doing things again, rather than enduring them.

And on Thursday the Kendall Square farmer's market opens! With the summery temps we've been having around here, I have been craving that fresh mozzarella.

Things are looking up?

Just another generic status update--the longer one goes between, the harder it gets to do them.... These past couple of days, my cooking impulse seems to be coming back to life. We are wrapping up a big project at work, after which things should quiet down a bit for the summer. I am taking next week off to visit family, and hoping that, too, will provide something of a recharge. After that it will be June, and summer. It's really hot in MA today, and the weather has me longing for summer's food, for farmer's markets, for things new and fresh.

I'm going to make this pasta salad for dinner tonight:

Mediterranean Orzo Salad with Feta Vinaigrette

It's an oldie but goodie. Makes me happy.

Goal Roundup: April

Short and easy: I sucked enormously at everything except saving money.

I have been neglecting this blog lately... work has been extra-stressful, and I haven't had much of the mental energy required to plan, shop for, and cook exciting new things. Only another month until our farmer's market opens, and that might be a mood booster....
