Okay, no time to chat this week! I’m busy getting all sorts of fun recipe posts ready for this blog in the coming week. We’ve been really missing France, and I want to bring more of the Francophile back to this blog.
It’s the last week of vacation, & it’s launched me into a serious funk. I have failed at cooking, but I’ve made lots of plans for next week. In the mean time, we lived off of frozen soups, dates at the co-op and–I know, I kn0w–pizza.
Have a wonderful weekend! I can’t wait to resume normal blogging practices next week. Bring it on 2013! I’m actually excited for classes & work to start again. I need a reason to put on real clothes.

**Holy Moses! Izze has two servings of fruit in each bottle. OF SODA. Winning.
Winter Farmers’ Market ($0)
Trying to bounce back from a Friday night return home, we completely forgot about Saturday market. Sadness.
