A sunny Friday. The first sunny day in a while. The days, cloudy and rainy of late, are draining me. I’m still getting used to the weather patterns now that I’ve moved to coastal Maine. I awake, bleary-eyed, arrive to work a few minutes later than planned, waiting for the dreariness to pass. Long used to getting a mellow caffeine fix from green tea, I turn to iced coffee a couple of days a week. I follow those coffee fixes with a period of frenetic jitteriness, and then an epic slump.

I must have slipped into a late winter hibernation, because I’m not quite sure how I let four months go by sans blog post. (Well, maybe I can. Let’s admit it; I’m pretty flaky about this whole blog thing.) But I’ve been cooking up a storm since then; and I’ve got photographic evidence to prove it. The husband and I have spent quite a bit of time in the kitchen together lately, which is always a relaxing way to wind down after a busy day in the office – glass of wine in hand, please.
