Yes, it has been a while. And a lot has happened since we last met on this blog. Thanksgiving (yes, the Beaujolais Nouveau was spectacular with dinner last year). Another awesome Seven Fishes Dinner with the Attanasis and their friends in Cranford (I made maple-glazed salmon again, by request, and it was the best version to date). Christmas (quiet). A serious health scare that is being taken care of (not completely out of the woods, but close). New Year's (quieter but poignant for reasons I can't really discuss here). Actual Christmas get-together was January 6 at Mom's in Moosic, where many gifts were had by all (the children) and even more gnochhis and meatballs were consumed. Sophie and Ben began winter clinics for Little League and Girls' Softball in Lawrenceville in the spring (so far, Sophie can hit! And Ben can throw!). I mourned the death of a dear friend's grandfather (at 99!), a full-of-life man that was my friend's hero and role model. Sadness and joy for his life, enough to fill a stadium. Gives you pause and makes you reflect.
Valentine's Day was briefly and sweetly romantic. I'll tell you why soon.
And that pretty much brings us up to date.
My next post will be about casseroles. I've been getting into that food genre, and, actually, so far so good!
My Salsa Chicken Rice casserole is to die for! I swear. And you can make it as easily as I did.You'll see. Very soon.
