Days and days do go by so quickly. Time and time does fly by so swiftly.
Minutes turn to hours to days to weeks to months. I last posted 8 months ago. So much passed since then – your recipes filled my inbox, my blog remained in a subtle hibernation, with the scarce WordPress notification downloading onto my app.
How do you wrap up eight whole months into a few short sentences, to perhaps try and justify your absence from something you once couldn’t abstain from for a day? Maybe you don’t. In fact, you probably just say a big bang hello and I’ve re-arrived at the party. And I brought some drummies and desirees along with.
But at the party my body of experiences doesn’t hold back. I tell you everything that happened in the 8 months I was gone.
From graduating university, to taking a semester’s break off work, to moving into an adorable townhouse and facing the reality of independent living with a loving partner, while missing the warmth of family back home.
But I have my own kitchen now.
Not that I hadn’t claimed the old one mine anyway.
I can cook whatever on earth I want to cook.
But on some days I don’t even want to cook.
That’s why I plan for leftovers from time to time.
Lie – I don’t plan it, I’m only feeding two mouths, yet only have experience cooking for 6.
Okay, enough. It’s a funny experience writing a blog post again after so long. I hope my readers are reading, and my blogging friends still around because I do plan on sticking around this time…
Drummies are on me. And the Desirees.
8 chicken drumsticks, skins on
For the potatoes:
6 red and 6 white desiree potatoes
