This month has absolutely flown. First we were on vacation in Scotland and Ireland for two weeks. The following two weeks we had back to back weddings, then my birthday (yay!) then family time. Needless to say, I haven’t had nearly as much time in the kitchen or with my blog as I would have liked. The lazy part of me, said it’s okay, just skip a month of the Secret Recipe Club. No one will care… But I would care. The Secret Recipe Club is a wonderful opportunity to explore other blogs. Too often do I find a wonderful recipe on a friend’s blog, thinking I’m going to make that right away! Months go by and the recipe still sits on Pinterest, still to be attempted. But SRC forces me to at least once a month, try something new. This month I was assigned to Heather’s It’s Yummy to My Tummy. Like me, Heather uses the kitchen to escape. There were so many great recipes to try, but again, the time thing.
The last day of the month is very quickly becoming my favorite day of the month. Well, maybe only second to the day I actually receive my Foodie Penpal package. Plus there’s the day I get my assignment… It’s a tough call. For those of you just tuning in, Foodie Penpals is the brainchild of Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean. Every month you send a box of food to an assigned penpal and receive a box in return. How this concept only started a little over a year ago is insanity to me. I mean seriously, who wouldn’t want to send and receive awesome foodie goodies every month?
