I’m back. My candidate lost the election, I am incredibly tired, and fighting some sort of campaign PTSD, but I am feeling tiny tendrils of excitement about getting back to my regular life. “Regular,” for me, would include no more Halloween candy and ancient doughnuts for lunch, no more crockpot-dump dinners for my family, and no more blogging about political instead of food. I’m back, if you’ll have me.
Tonight (I slept all day) I am making a real menu and a grocery list with items like olive oil and garlic rather than canned, cream soups and pre-cut vegetables. I am having a dinner party for ten on Saturday night. I have big things planned for this blog, including a repeat of last year’s Thanksgiving planner countdown, commentary on many food-related absurdities which have come to my attention in the past few months, and a new contest. (Well, and actually writing and posting on a regular basis).
If you want to see where I’ve been, check over here (you can search for my pieces under Ann Nichols) and come back here whenever you can; I’ll see if I can make this all up to you.
