So, we’re back.
We’re back, and life is here, and all of that routine, normal, expected part of living day to day is just so darn easy for the most part. Seriously– I appreciate the details so, so much more today than I did before eeking it out in Nepal was part of my reality. (Crockpot, anyone?!?)
Now, I am well aware that I never got the chance to make a fair shake of real, full life in Nepal. I wasn’t there long enough to find my rhythm fully, or to even figure out a whole week’s worth of meals with zero repeats. So please know that I am not complaining about the difficulty of life in developing countries. I’m simply sharing that since I never got over the hump of banging my head against the kitchen cabinet as I realized that I couldn’t make that, either, finding myself back in the land of fully-stocked grocery stores and year-round produce options is a little heady.
So menu making is fun again. It’s not just fun, it’s delightful. My Pinterest boards are inspiring. My appliances (for which I thank many generous friends!) are being put to good use. And my people? They are happy.
