I have been remiss in posting lately and in the time gone have received some notes offering to update for me and some why you no post!!! *Long dumb reasons for lack of post at the end – I hate to start a post with a rant.
I have been away and instead of posting while vacationing (was trying to break the internets addiction on relax time), I am posting after the fact. Nearly two weeks after, though not long enough that my flight miles have credited to my account yet and not long enough that I can request the missing miles – BOOOOO United, when you were Continental I did not have to deal with this BS and I am meticulously tracking my travel and flex EQM miles to ensure I keep my gold status.
So we scrapped China (moving it to November) for a shorty trip – 7 days in Vienna, where I have been wanting to go to for ever, but always skipped because I was kinda stupid and could not find a rental flat in the ring and because out side the ring is often referred to as the “suburbs” thought that was not in the city. the Ring is only like a mile wide, so, uh, doh! on my stupidity. It took watching an episode of House Hunters International (TM) to um, get it. That and doing some travel reading. **Fully aware how dumb I sound.
I’ve been neglectful. Very neglectful. But I have been cooking, I have also been battling bronchitis and all week have been doing double duty cleaning out the freezer and killing off the leftovers by eating all the soups I have mad over the winter that I froze for later.
I did have a massive cookfest over the weekend. The husband and I are team captains for NAMIWalks NYC which benefits individuals and families living with mental illness. We were recipients of a $100 stipend from Fresh Direct to host a dinner party and if you read this, you know I pretty much only shop the lazy way – online with everything delivered. With the exception of Market Hall Foods for my specialty items – imported flours and salts and spices and olive oils, Fresh Direct is my go to for food. I was pretty jazzed to be chosen to host. I decided, to use it to host a party for the walk team, though we were sadly missing a team member who was away and could not attend.
We had a fancy Pizza Party. I was a little worried at with having a Pizza Party since you can only do 1 at a time, but it worked great! I bought the major major pizza cutter which has totes changed my life and I would highly recommend! It made cutting the pizzas small for cocktail eating perfect.
