I'm Back--Kind of

Last Friday when I said I'd be back on Monday I think I seriously underestimated how tired and wiped out I would feel after working 14+ hour days all weekend for our biggest event of the year--which explains why I haven't posted anything for the last two days. 

Last night I cooked a real home cooked meal for the first time in over two weeks (lots of frozen Trader Joe's meals and take out got us through) and actually had a night where we could do whatever we wanted because I wasn't working late into the night.

We celebrated by having our friend JDP over for dinner.  I made a very Spring meal:  poached salmon with fresh dill (from our new dill plant!), roasted cauliflower and wild rice which we paired with ice water with cucumber slices.  If you have never put cucumbers in your iced water before, you should really try it!  It flavors your water without overpowering it and adds a very clean, crisp taste to it that keeps you going back for more and more.

We finished off the night with some frozen yogurt before watching two more episodes of Mad Men (for those keeping track at home we are now at the beginning of season three and loving the show)!

I also have approximately 746 unread items in my Google Reader that I am slowly working through.  I promise I will be back to a regular posting (and commenting) schedule very soon.  I can't wait to see what you all have been up to!

Happy Wednesday everyone!


  1. WELCOME BACK!! I hope you get some rest and energy as the week goes on. Just think, it's half way to the weekend already! Have a great week!

  2. I was happy to see your name in my dashboard this morning. Nice to see you back...have a wondeful rest of the week!

  3. So good to see you back! Hope you're recovering and relaxing and doing well. And, this dinner sounds sooooo tasty!

  4. Welcome back! I missed you! Next trip to the grocery store I might just have to pick up some cucumber. :)

  5. Glad the event went well! I get overwhelmed with 15 unread items in my Reader, so I cannot begin to imagine how I would handle 700+!
