Here we are, another week nearly gone and school, for us anyhow, starts on Monday. I’m more than a little excited. This has been a long summer, I’m ready for some structure to be added to the chaos that is my work life dance. (Anyone who dares call it a balance is going to get a full on side eye.) Thanks, Amy.
Sure there will be a lot more driving, but hello, that’s exactly why Spotify and Stitcher were invented. Speaking of, if you’re on Spotify, I’m always looking for new music, despite my penchant for 90s alternative. Follow me and I’ll take a peek at your playlists and I promise not to poke fun if you don’t.
I’m learning a new balance of menu planning and cooking and that’s interesting, too. Which brings up the fact that I have a stack of cookbooks to review.
Sometimes I fail to read the fine print. I was initially intrigued when I received an email about Matthew Kenney’s Everyday Raw Gourmet. I was interested in maybe seeing some new techniques and some different ingredient combinations, but I apparently read right over the word “vegan”. Vegan is a lifestyle choice and it simply isn’t mine. This is not a criticism of the cookbook by any means, I’m simply not the target audience.
If you would like a chance to win this beautifully photographed copy of the Everyday Raw Gourmet, leave a comment before Sunday August 18, 2013 at 9pm Eastern. Monday morning, bright and early, I’ll select a comment, at random. I will announce the winner in Monday morning’s post and contact the commenter via email. No purchase required, must be a resident of the US as I’m handling shipping and I love all of you, but the US post office doesn’t.
