The last time I posted something, I noted that I had passed the 500-post mark. Do I really have that much to say? Apparently.
It was time for a new template. In my spare time this weekend, I have scoured the Internet for ideas and backgrounds, only to find today that Blogger actually has a new advanced template design system. So after much trial and error, I have found a look I can live with for another 3.5 years.
I started blogging when food blogs were hot and growing. But a year later, I took a new job that limited my time in the kitchen. Now, nearly three years into that job, it's time to start cooking again.
Just under a year ago, I learned what I had suspected off and on for several years: I have a wheat allergy. It was not difficult to eliminate most sources of wheat from my diet, but then I have not traveled to France in over a year, and I suspect it will be a true challenge on our next visit. Luckily - or unluckily - the earliest that visit is likely to occur is next fall, as my husband may be facing surgery later in the year. We'll see.
(The older I get, the more patient I become. Which is odd, because I have less time left to me.)
So I continue to eat low on the food chain, and follow a mix of the South Beach and Mediterranean diets. I have not had a major stomach flare up in a while, and I have more energy (except when I lose an hour of sleep because of springing forward.)
Tomorrow I will write out my check for this year's CSA bounty. Because it's been a mild couple of weeks here in Wisconsin, I can now walk outdoors daily.
I love spring. I've been eating a lot of seafood lately and many salads.
And the kitchen beckons. Life is good.
