I wrote a post just before heading off to visit family for the holidays. Now, I don’t know where it is. I appear to have failed some digital task such as pushing the “publish” button. Mostly, it was a note about Luis, and his very sweet acknowledgement that his exam period was a trial for me as well has him (in very different ways, and not nearly as hard for me as for him). He brought home a lovely poinsettia as part of his thanks.
With that post gone, my blog looks mighty empty for December. It’s not that I didn’t cook or think about writing, simply that my new job has had quite a steep learning curve. I have spent most of my energy learning, and then attempting to implement, several aspects of my job. Occasionally this has kept me late at work, and frequently has left me with little imagination for the dinner table.
I pulled out some old classics, which I hope to share here sometime soon, and stuck with many simple dishes that are not exactly photogenic. Hopefully this will not be the case, at least not as frequently, in the future.
This weekend I look forward to a visit from my mother, and perhaps some dessert play. There will definitely be good food, though with only my camera and not Luis’s, the quality of photos may be down. Such is life. We’ll do our best.
