The Fact Is

There’s no easy way to say this: the Refrigerate After Opening kitchen is suddenly, and unexpectedly, down a member.

It was awful and cliche and everything else expected. But, no less painful.

This morning, I was using a running training program at the gym and midway through the workout, I couldn’t think of anything else but the physical pain. All I wanted to do was quit. I didn’t, if only because I realized that the only way to get through it was, quite simply, to get through it.

Then, I had the pathetic thought that the training program lasted for nine weeks and I was in week two, so in another seven weeks time, hopefully I’ll be able to run more and hurt less on all counts. Only time will tell, I suppose.

At any rate, I apologize for the personal post. All of this is really to say that I have some posts scheduled, so you’ll see those. But, after that, I plan on taking a break while I wrap my head around cooking for one. I’ve spent my life in the kitchen and don’t expect that to stop. So, I’ll be back at some point in the not so distant future, I hope.

Be well in the meantime. And, of course, eat well.

    Can’t wait to see whatever you have cooked up. I think that this is definitely time to bring some guest cooks into the kitchen. Nothing heals faster than food and friends (not necessarily in that order). Love you much!

  2. I am currently painting a Chili Pot with Bella which can only mean one thing. We are going to be cooking an incredibly large amount of chili soon. So when the season turns, and the NYC leaves start to fall you better get that kitchen prepped!

    Very sad to see this post today. Sending good thoughts your way…let me know if you also need me to send chocolate chunk cookies from City Bakery!

    Hang in there.
