Yes, we are back in New Jersey and have been back since the end of February. We miss our food blog friends!
Packing up and moving cross country is quite a large task at hand. It is also very exhausting. We currently are renting a beautiful house on the lagoon and settled in to enjoy the summer near the water. We will be house hunting in the fall. With all the unpacking to do, I also decided to go to school and get my Realtors license which I gladly passed the state test and have been licensed since May. Rowland is back at work and doesn't like the long commute and longs for the 15 minute commutes he had while we lived in Texas.
It is has been a flurry of activity since we have been back with family and friends wanting to see us. As they say there is no place like home! Time has certainly passed so fast since we have been back.
Our dining experience has been very limited due to lack of funds and being very busy and lots of summer BBQ's.
Starting sometime in October we will be having what we call pot luck Saturday night which we started about 9 years ago with friends. Since we came back our friends have been asking if we will be starting them up again and we said YES! So with that said there is a group of about 12 of us and we take turns hosting and can pick and choose the theme we want if we are hosting and let everyone know what the theme is and we cook according to that theme. It is lots of fun and a chance to try something new and to be with great friends and have a good time. We will be documenting our pot lucks and bringing them to you!
We will also be starting our fall and winter kitchen cooking series soon.......glad to be back home and look forward to sharing stories with each and every one of you.
Rowland and Ronnie
