Hi friends! My sincere apologies for the abrupt disappearance. You see, I've been awfully darn busy: first I catered my cousin's bridal shower (well, technically, my cousin's fiancee's bridal shower, but in like 6 weeks Kate will be my cousin, too). Part of the spread was the quiche parade you see above.
And then I got a job! Hooray! I've been working a couple of days a week until the woman I'm replacing moves to southeast Asia, and then I'll be full time in the catering kitchen at Formaggio Kitchen. Guys, it is a really cool place to work.
Finally, I've been canning up a freaking storm. You remember how much I put up last year? This year I'm in line to fill the cupboard and then some. I've got almost two dozen pints of salsa done, plus tomatoes and pickles and jams, oh my. I've gone through 75 pounds of tomatoes in the last week, so while I'm up to my elbows in sugar and vinegar and vegetables, I haven't had a chance to write here. Today is the last big push for my late summer canning - peach salsa, tomato jam, jalapeno jelly, pickled jalapenos and tomato juice. I'll be back soon!
