Whew, long time, no blog! The first week of June, Dan and I went back to James River State Park. He and colleagues Dan B. and Richard took a group of teachers there for a retreat as the capstone to a professional-development class they have been teaching all year. I went along to 1) take vacation in the beautiful park and 2) help Paul prepare meals for 25 for two days. After the teachers left Thursday after lunch, Dan, Dan B, Richard, Paul and I went tubing on the James – that was great. I need to get hold of the video from Danny B and post it. But I guess the week exhausted me more than I realized – I’ve been tired all week.
I promise (I know you’ve heard that before 😉 ) I will post photos and videos soon, but in the meantime, it’s been HOT HOT HOT! and Jaden from Steamy Kitchen blogged about being interviewed by the Washington Post for a story they did recently on making meals with little to no cooking needed, so I wanted to make a note of it. Here’s the link:
I especially like the idea of the Asian-flavored ceviche and the Chinese cucumber appetizer. I already have my own delicious tzatziki recipe; in fact, I made it last week to serve with grilled chicken, lettuce and tomatoes in pita pockets. Easy, yummy meal for the hot weather.
