It’s been a little while since I’ve made my way to this space. First, I went to Texas to spend a week with my sister and her family. I was there for Halloween (though it rained buckets during the trick or treating window) and my older nephew’s seventh birthday (I love it when I’m able to be present for the milestones).
I flew home just long enough to cast my ballot on election day, do a load of laundry, repack my suitcase and fly off again, this time to Tennessee. I was there for the Saveur Food Blog Awards and while I didn’t win, I had ridiculous amount of fun, spent time with a collection of delightful people, and fell a tiny bit in love with the city of Memphis.
Now I’m back home, fumbling my way back towards routine and normalcy. First on the docket is getting back into my twice monthly Facebook Live habit. Tomorrow night (Monday, November 12) at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT, I’ll be doing the first live demo of the month over on the Food in Jars Facebook page. I’ll be showing you how to make a batch of Cranberry Orange Compote.
If you want to cook along with me, you can find the recipe here.
