So I kind of have a confession to make — I’ve actually been living in Southern California for the past few months. The guy I’m dating got a job out here and I decided to go with him to see how I liked it. Technically, I haven’t moved; I’ve just been “visiting.” But for all intents and purposes, this is where I’ve been sleeping and cooking since January. I still haven’t been able to find a job here or made a final decision about whether or not I’m going to stay. The good thing is that I have complete control over the kitchen — I was lucky enough to decide on almost every utensil, pot, pan, knife, bowl, appliance, gadget, and do-dad that we’ve bought for this place. It’s been amazing and I hope I get to stay out here and establish an actual residency instead of this limbo stuff I’ve been going through. That’s my update. Expect more recipes coming this week!
