Hotter than a hot dog...

I get that we are right smack in the middle of summer, but i swear it is too hot to do anything.

I'm in no mood to cook.  To go grocery shopping.  And, somedays, to eat.
Although last week i did actually have hot soup for lunch, but that was mostly because i didn't have to cook it and truthfully I could eat hot soup at any time.  But I digress.

I'm taking advantage of the modern convenience of online grocery shopping, because it feels like too much effort to get in a hot car, drive for groceries, shop in a crowed store only to have to schlep bags back to the (which is again hot), drive home, and finally schlep stuff into the house.  Yeah, I'm not here for that right now.  And online shopping keeps me from 
doing this:

So that's what's up with me.  That and I had a delicious trio of salads made by my boss last week - wheat berry, quinoa, and orzo each a different salad but so, so good.  I've pinned some ideas so check out my Pinterest page.

Stay cool.

Starting from scratch

 It's been a very long time since I've posted, let alone think about this blog; life happens.  And if I'm completely honest, although no one reads this blog, I felt overwhelmed for sometime - I don't want to overshare and I don't want to come off like I think I'm some type of cooking expert,  I'm just a little librarian that likes to cook.

Exempt, not.

Not only have I not been blogging, I haven't been cooking either.  I dabble.  But I have not taken the time to cook anything; nothing new, inspired by what I'm reading, or old favorites.  I lost the thing that made cooking fun.  Over my life time in the kitchen I've made more than my share of mistakes, cooking disasters that I've had to eat.  I've also had many happy surprises. 

I currently find myself with much on my plate and concerns aplenty, and that seems to have brought me back to the kitchen.  That's the universe at work.  I'm fairly certain there's a quote about seeking shelter in a storm, but I can't think of it at the moment.

I'm in the kitchen making risotto with asparagus at the moment and grateful to be back in comfort and safety of my kitchen.

Also just got incase someone is reading this and worrying over me - don't I'm happy and good.  I just have a lot of life stuff right now.
