My week got off to a great start yesterday. I pretty much got everything I needed to done and fit in a few bonuses. I'm keeping track of my progress here. The pasta salad, always an adventure, turned out great with leftover chicken, sicilian cracked olives, artichoke hearts, mozzerella cheese, broccoli and orange sweet peppers. I tossed it with a combination of almost-gone salad dressings, so as usual, it was a delicious, but never to be repeated combo. That is the story of much of my cooking because I love to try new things. I was imagining that I looked and cooked like Giada Dilaurentis. I'm pretty sure that is why it tasted so good.
Anyway, I just spent a luxuriant hour really reading my friends' blogs and can I just say again how grateful I am to have sort of stumbled my way into this? There is something about being able to read and then write about life that allows feelings to be expressed and personalities to be discovered in a way that I love. For an introverted homebody like me, it has been a wonderful way to make connections I might never have made otherwise.
