I haven't forgotten about you, blog. There's just been so much going on - lots of work, lots of travel - but I'm here, and I want to share the last few months with you.
I started the new year with a quick trip to New Orleans, where I had some of the best meals of my life. We ate at some amazing restaurants, where I gave most of my hard-earned money to John Besh, and it was totally worth every penny. AND we got to experience my first ever Mardi Gras parade. Our daily activities were planned around our meals (I mean, eating is an activity in NOLA) and in between meals, we explored the French Quarter, the Warehouse Arts District, the Garden District, and lots in between. We decided that five days just wasn't enough, and we'll have to make our way back.
After months of planning, organizing, a weekend of 4:30am wake-up calls, and an overall extremely successful event, I was more than ready to escape for a long weekend.
Miami was beautiful and my body was thrilled to finally experience sun and sand. Highlights included a delicious breakfast, beautiful cocktails, and a morning of solitude on the bay.
After a whirlwind past few months, it felt great to get back to my normal routine. More homemade meals was the goal, and the easier, the better.
Breakfast-for-dinner is a great go-to, whether it's breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, leftover cabbage slaw, + homemade guacamole, or toasted whole wheat sourdough with almond butter, banana, chia seeds, hemp seeds, maple syrup + cinnamon.
Or, one-pot tofu coconut curry with light coconut cream, vegetable stock, tofu, + all the vegetables I could thrown in.
As I've said in a previous post, I'm continuously exploring my new home of BK (+ NYC). Even though I get to enjoy NOLA coffee here in my own apartment, I'm afraid I've caught the travel bug this year. I can't wait for my next non-local adventure!
