…as Elton John would say! Truly, beloveds, I have neglected you too long, but I hope you understand that I needed this past month to settle into my new gig. True to my nature, I’ve been feeling pretty anxious and burned out about the whole thing, but I’m happy to report that my appearance in the office was greeted with much joy, and I no longer feel like I’m going to vomit razor blades every morning.
Also, they know I’m vegan, so I’m out of that closet without much drama.
So! I’m excited to get back on a regular blogging schedule. I’ve kept up with you all as best I can, but I’ve missed being part of the conversation. To keep me on track, I present to you a list of posts you can look forward to:
1. My birthday
3. The awesomeness that ensued when worlds collided and Red and I met Cody, husband of everyone’s favorite Voracious Vegan
4. My first apple pie!
5. A CSA roundup or two
I gotta be honest with you about #5, though. We’re still getting our weekly hoards of veggies, and they are still awesome, but I hit pause on recording and photographing our meals during this past month. We stopped with Week #3, and now we’re coming up on Week #10 or something, and the thought of having to do that many catch-up posts just made me want to cry. Believe me when I tell you we’ve gotten lots of lettuce and summer squash. I’ll try to post regularly about the CSA goodness from here on out.
I now present to you the most fearsome fruit ever to escape the rainforest: MONSTERA DELICIOSA!
We found this thing at MOM’s, and $7 later, it was ours. Seriously, how could we not buy it? Its name is Delicious Monster, and if that isn’t reason enough for you, maybe you’re not my friend. I can’t yet vouch for its deliciousness, because we have to leave it in its jar until it sheds all its little scaly things. It peels itself! It’s the perfect lazy fruit! Depending on how long it takes, maybe I’ll post updates on the monstera’s progress. We’re told it tastes like a banana-pineapple hybrid, so I look forward to enjoying it.
It’s good to be back, darlings.
