I'm here! I've been on a hiatus since school ended, as you might have imagined. Things are kind of crazy 'round these parts. We've been traveling - Rochester, NY to Toronto, and then a crazy long road trip we just returned from to Maryland, NYC, upstate New York, Vermont and back down again!
I'm going to post a short series about our travels to each place. I will talk about live blue crabs. And s'mores.
In other exciting news...Miss Ella is going to be a big sister. For real! It's going to be kind of wild having two kids almost 7 years apart. Ella is over-the-moon excited about her new role, and I know she's going to be a great helper. Thankfully, I haven't been nearly as sick as I was with my first, but first trimester fatigue was sucking the energy right out of me. Just another reason I haven't been posting - I've been sleeping pretty much the whole time. I'm waiting for that fabled second trimester surge of energy. Any day now hopefully....
I've also finished up the final edits for my recipes in the new Trader Joe's cookbook! I'm so excited!
"Cooking with Trader Joe's - Easy Lunchboxes will be available in Sept. of 2012, wherever books are sold! Gorgeous full-color photographs by Marla Meridith. With mouth-watering recipe contributions from over 30 of my amazing lunch-packing and foodie friends! Now really, who doesn't love Trader Joe's? More info: http://bit.ly/K2iLY3"
I have some new bento plates and recipes to post soon! I hope you all are having a fabulous summer!
