As the title might have implied, I am not dead. Nor have I dropped off the face of the earth or fallen down a well. I haven’t even been abducted by aliens. I’ve just been enjoying some quality time with my husband while he’s on vacation. Rest assured, we plan to resume our normal schedules next week. Which means that I’ll be able to catch you up on all the wonderful foods we’ve eaten lately. (And, believe me, they will be worth the wait!) I hope you’re experiencing some less sweltering weather and enjoying the bounty of the season. I will be back with a full post soon. Happy eating!!
