Time For A Blogging Break


Things have been a bit hectic around here this week. All of the tomatoes have been harvested, in fact pretty much everything has been harvested except all of the herbs and hot peppers. They love the heat! So it has been a busy week with the garden. Our son Chris is packing up and getting ready to head to Maine next week, as he is going to be the chef at an artist retreat! This whole deal sounds wonderful to me and I wish I was one of the artists! Chris has been occupying our VERY small kitchen the past few weeks working on new meals so I have not had the opportunity to cook like I usually do. I am not complaining, as we are the lucky recipients of these great tasty new dishes he is creating! So, needless to say, things are busy around here. Therefore I have decided to take a blog break. I need to regroup and will be back in a couple of weeks with some more cookbook reviews, much neglected wine reviews, and some new dishes for your summer picnics!

Cheers to all and I will see you in a couple of weeks!

Deb darling..never be worried about taking a little break from the blog. Sometimes I don't even realise that this is not something important for my life but it's such a part of me.
I'll miss you dear but i'm happy that you have so many satisfactions in your family and home! Love and health are the most important things in life, everything else is in second place.
I'm in contact with a couple from Florida for a wedding in Tuscany :-D i hope they will decide soon! They are so lovely! Like you dear!
A big kiss for everything you need give me a call!

Sounds like a busy time!

Think a blog break sounds like a great idea - come back to us soon with lots of new scrumptious food!

And best of luck to Chris!

Hi Deb,

Thanks for your words of support for my blog block. I feel it loosening up, so I may get my second wind pretty soon.

I hope that you are enjoying your blog siesta and I look forward to reading more about what's cooking up in your kitchen. Too bad Chris couldn't be a guest blogger, I am so curious about the types of dishes he will be cooking up at his new job.
