Just when I’m ready to get back on that horse that is my regular posting schedule my computer refuses to cooperate and stay on long enough to recover my photos for today’s post. I’m going to look back on this period of sickness and computer problems as The Dark Time. We’ve been in contact with Dell but we still have no idea when they will be returning our new computer to us. It’s frustrating to finally feel well enough to cook and to spend much of yesterday in the kitchen and to still not have my post up. Enjoy some awesome food links from other blogs instead.
