I’m back, baby! Plus, an anniversary…and chicken balls.
Well, it’s been one solid month (and one day) since I posted anything, but I swear I have a (pretty) good explanation–I was in a musical! Yup, I was part of my first full-scale musical theater production since college and I couldn’t have been happier! We were in rehearsals since May, but June and July really put things into full-swing with dress rehearsals, tech week and performances. I spent days going straight from work to the theater, only home to sleep, really. But it was all worth it.
Unfortunately, juggling a full-time job, a packed rehearsal schedule AND a food blog is a little too much, and something had to give. And since I couldn’t very well just stop showing up to work (as nice as that would be!), I had to take some time off from the blog.
Oh, did I mention one of my coworkers was out the first week of tech rehearsals, so on top of everything else, I was pulling double-duty at work. Yeah, there was no free time.
But now the show is closed and I’m back and better than ever! And lucky for you, I have some recipes and other fun stuff banked from before the show that I can share! (Since I did literally no cooking during the run. Honestly, I don’t think I turned my stove on for four weeks.)
In the meantime, here are some production photos to prove I wasn’t just slacking off 😉 (I did “42nd Street,” for those that don’t know.)
Now, technically, since I just took a month off, I’m not sure I can actually call this my six-month blogiversary. BUT, it IS still the six-month anniversary of the blog itself. It has been in existence for six months, even if I haven’t always been here. So, I guess it’s more of a happy birthday to LLPF than a happy anniversary to me. Either way, this is a milestone I’m happy to hit and the perfect day for my big return!
No worries, plenty of yummy (and healthy!) goodness will be coming your way soon! Glad to be back! 🙂
Oh, also, anyone who follows me on Twitter and Facebook already saw this, but this came with the Chinese food Kevin and I ordered Saturday night:
Thanks, but I think I’ll pass…
