Let me start by saying this is most definitely not a food blog. But sometimes I come up with something so tasty I feel compelled to share. I’m also not a food photographer. It’s just real food, made by a real person, in a real kitchen. This recipe comes with a background story. I’ve been home recovering from my double mastectomy for 5 days now and as you can imagine, I’m starting to get cabin fever. Especially since it was 70 degrees out today! I feel pretty good besides some soreness and bruising. There’s no rule that says I can’t leave the house, but the thought of going to the grocery store while I have surgical drain tubes protruding from my sides with clear goo-collection bulbs at the end sounds horrible and embarrassing.
I remember when you showed up. Unexpectedly of course. Some warning would have been nice. But no, there you were, all of a sudden. I’m not even sure I was the first to notice you, it might have been the 4th grade boys in my class that first pointed you out… literally… with hand over mouth giggles. To say I was embarrassed was an understatement.
