It's a really gorgeous day here in San Francisco. Finally. I returned last Monday from a few weeks in Michigan with the family, friends & my parents puggles in 90 degree weather, humidity and summer fun only to find grey skies & dreary weather for a week straight. Yuck! I had almost forgot what it felt like to be in the midwest for summer before heading home. Summer in Michigan feels fantastic to go back to. I was quickly reminded that despite the high 90s, you always have to carry a sweater with you because every business and restaurant blasts the air conditioning at the "arctic blast" setting, but that sure beats having low 50 degree weather with tons of wind all June & July. Now that I am back, I sure do miss the puggle snuggles and BBQ food every night. Okay, okay - my friends & family too, but nothing beats those cute little snuggles from Mona & goofy Seymour. I thought I'd be in trouble with my new food allergy discoveries headed back home, but turns out that the summer lends itself well to lean meats and vegetables for dinner. I think J-Pierre & I need to bust out some BBQ'ing in our cute garden backyard soon, as it is slowly starting to get "warmer" (60s + up) here. So here I am! Back in San Francisco, totally slammed, back to my indian food cooking experiments, health food/exercise books & rocking & rolling with work. Lots of exciting things to launch this summer and fall if all stays on schedule, stay tuned.
