After being away for several days visiting family for the holidays, I am back in my kitchen. Oh, how I have missed it! A relaxing break is enjoyed - and often needed - every once in a while. But I am a gal of routine. I enjoy planning out our weekly menu, heading to the grocery store with purpose. Prepping and cooking dinner most nights. I get comfort from those routine actions. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy and greatly appreciate someone else's good cooking (did I mention the oyster dressing with crab meat Christmas Day dinner? Oh My!). But I also enjoy feeding my family from my own kitchen. And I am back. Where I belong!
