Today was my beloved grandmother’s 81st birthday. I made her an apple tart with extra apples since I want to be baking for her for many years to come. She has been a force of love and delicious food in my life. Her cooking taught me how to eat, how to taste. In her kitchen I am always the student eager to help and learn (and steal a bite).
Today is also my return to blogging after a shamefully long absence! To sum up the last few months: I started a new job and the Mr. worked through an election; we had birthdays, holidays, and long travel days; we had visitors and made visits; and somewhere in there we reached 7 months of married life. Now we are settling into 2013 and the calm of January. Next up: inauguration weekend in the District.
