Hey, everyone. Long time, no post. I know. It's been a rough June.
I had surgery on the 17th (Don’t worry, it was very minor and outpatient!), and I feel like I spent the whole month waiting to get in until it finally happened. I neglected a lot of things, namely this blog, while getting ready for surgery. Today is the best day of my recovery so far, so I’m taking some time to let you all know what is going on.
For starters, I have still been cooking out of our June cookbook of the month. You’ll get a review for Indian-ish before the end of the month. I wish I could have done more with it, but I can barely stand being on my feet for much more than ten minutes or so at a time. Cooking hasn’t been a high priority during my recovery. I must have asked my husband to pick up food every day this week, poor man.
I’ve also got our July cookbook of the month picked out. There will be more on that before the end of the month. Hint: it’s another Bon Appetit personality’s cookbook. After getting Alison Roman’s Dining In at the recommendation of the Bon Appetit foodcast, I have definitely been shilling it out to some of their people this year.
I’m also planning a very nerdy outing for next month. July sees the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s new expansion, Shadowbringers. I am very excited, and to commemorate this nerdy part of my life, I’ll be doing a recipe based on one new culinarian recipe every week to two weeks. We’re going to have a lot of fun. I don’t know how long this project will go on. Depends on what Shadowbringers has in store for us culinarians.
The next few weeks for me are all about recovery: physically and in my writing. Thanks as always for hanging in there with me during these rough patches.
