Is this thing still on? Are you guys still there?
I know. A whole month! I was so good, for a whole month! Beyond good even – every day, two blogs, doing in my thing. And then it ended and I gave myself a day or two to catch my breath. I let myself relax and whammo, back to my bad old habits. Well, that and I had an awful lot to do, what with a million and one things to bake (handmade for the holidays, you know) and taking care of everything before I came back up to the East Bay for another ten days.
Oh, whatever, I suck, and there’s no use making excuses. BUT. I did bake an amazing amount of great stuff. I mean, wow. I made those Meyer lemon sablés, my favorite brownies, California fruit and nut bars with cocoa nibs, and marshmallows.
And pumpkin waffles.
And swiss chard with roasted poblano chiles and hominy, served atop white rice, alongside pan fried chicken.
Clearly, I have some catching up to do. And I will, I promise! First I have to finish giving a certain someone special a whirlwind tour of the East Bay, and then I’ll be back. I’ll even show you the cards I made to go with my goody bags of tastee-treets. OH THE EXCITEMENT. Can you handle it?
Assuming you’re all still here, of course!
