Memory lane

 I thought you guys might enjoy a a picture I found in my dad’s barn over the weekend. He used to cut my hair with shop scissors to save money on haircuts, my mother must have been working too many late hours as a nurse to disagree. My parents worked their “you know whats” off to give me a delightful childhood (and adulthood)  and I am so thankful for them. They are reaching retirement age and, fingers crossed, they finally get to play and reap the benefits of all their hard work!

It was so lovely to be back in the kitchen last week! I’m just so thankful for what I get to do for a living. The whole process (even all the dish washing) is just a lovely dance I get to do 3 times a week and I’m just so blessed. 

As it heats up inland, I’m seeing lots of new things coming in the market right now so we can look forward to seeing new stuff in the soups! Hooray!
