Where I’ve Been
You might have noticed that it’s been a little quieter than usual here. Sorry about that.
Hopefully a few pretty pictures will make it up to you?
A few weeks ago I
hopped on a plane got up at 3am to sit in an airport for 3 hours waiting to hop on a plane. Eventually we actually got on the plane and after several more hours of airport torture, I found myself in Seattle, Washington.
As in, clear on the other side of the country from where I live. My first trip to the West Coast!
First we toured the Olympic Peninsula, where we saw the tallest mountains I’ve ever laid eyes on, beaches that are the polar opposite of East Coast beaches, and trees dripping with moss in the rain forest. Yes, rain forest!
When we’d had our fill of wilderness, we made our way back to Seattle where I proceeded to eat my way around Pike Place Market and the rest of Seattle.
World’s Best Mac & Cheese at Beecher’s in Pike Place? Yup, I ate that.
Free samples on the Theo Chocolate Factory tour? I ate those too (and then some).
Apple fritter the size of my face? More coffee than I’ve drank in my entire life? A life-changing bacon & cheddar crepe with maple syrup and a fried egg at Citizen? Done, done and done. Our hotel, The Maxwell, even had free pineapple cupcakes every evening!
But now I’m home again and ready to share more recipes with you! I hope you’re hungry…
