The Single Life I am single, again. That’s what it feels like. At least until my husband finally gets home from his hockey game. You see, he was supposed to be home by 8:30pm so I could go grocery shopping at Trader Joes, and they close at 9pm. I was killing time [...]
I love chocolate cake! There. I said it. Or, wrote it. Typed it? Anyway, it’s out there. Of course, just about anyone who knows me, knows this about me. So, while most people lament the loss of bread when they have to go on gluten free diet, not me. I was going to miss chocolate cake. Other sweets are ok, but chocolate cake is my favorite. I don’t even eat it that often. But the thought of never having it again was just so sad.
This last weekend, we went to my father-in-law’s place in Big Sur, CA. It is on top of one of the hills on the east side of highway 1. It is just beautiful up there. As you go up the driveway, you can just feel any stress you have leaving your body. That is why I am so disappointed that my memories of this place will be forever tainted with being gluten-ed there on Saturday night.
I’m not even sure if I can trust my memory of what happened at the conference anymore, since it has been so long now. I want to start off by apologizing. I write a series of posts and lag behind on getting the finale up in a timely manner. I guess it’s a good thing I’m not a writer for “Lost.” I don’t think I have millions of people waiting with bated breath for this post, but I do want to be fair for those readers that I do have. So, my apologies. A lot of life stuff has happened to me since the last post. I promise if I ever have a series of posts again, I will have them all written ahead of time, so I can get them up quicker. Thank you for your patience.
So, away we go!
Road Trip! While that exclamation is, usually, supposed to elicit whoops and hollers of excitement from people, if the road trip consists of being by yourself, traveling down I-5 to Los Angeles for six and a half hours in awful weekend traffic, uh… not so much. But, but, but… it was so worth it. The [...]
I’m pretty good at cooking, too. I have my basic dishes that I make a lot, but they rock. And I am working on branching out to new things. Baking is another matter. I really like it, but I bake cookies. That’s about it. So why I chose a gluten-free, dairy-free cream-filled puffed pastry as my recipe for ‘Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger’ is beyond me. What was I thinking?
