I'm back! And as the statement above clearly indicates, I have an update and a sneak peek at some tasty new recipes that I'll be sharing in the days and weeks ahead!
First, the update! I won't go into the major details about what the past couple of months has been like in my world. I'm in the process of writing a post for my other blog (Spilled On The Kitchen Table) called "Living With Lupus - The Crash". If you'd like to know more about my trip and my recovery from it, I'll be adding the link to the title here once it's live on the blog and you'll be magically whisked from this blog to the other, where you can catch up with my life and learn a bit more about it/me. (Should be up in a few days)
For now, I will say that I've been down for the count since the first part of the year and that I'm finally working my way back toward being a more functional, more involved with the world, Me. I have to throw in one little spoiler, though...
Part of the reason that I've been gone so long, is that I was blessed beyond all blessings, to have been right there in the room, the moment that he entered the world. I went down early so that I could also be around to help the new little family settle in. Then the Hubbs drove down a couple of weeks later, to spend a love filled, truly joyous first Christmas with the newest member of our family!
We drove back up North, shortly after New Year's week and as I suspected, I've been recuperating ever since. Yup. It sounds like a long time to recover from a "holiday trip", but when you live with an autoimmune disease like Lupus, that's just how it is. Lupus has been a part of my life long enough to know before I left, that it was going to kick my behind and then some, but I wouldn't trade the joy of being there when our grandson was born and for his first few weeks on this earth for anything in this world! (Even with Face Time and phone calls, etc. I miss him like crazy, though)
So, let's take a little peek at what I'm working on for all of you at the moment, shall we?

Don't forget that you can print this (or any) recipe using the "Print Friendly" button at the foot of each post. It's a great little feature that allows you to remove any pictures (or any text that isn't relevant to the recipe) before printing. That can save on ink and paper & in today's economy, who doesn't want to save a little cash when you can?!
