I’m finally coming up for air after a very hectic week of work and play. I’ve been engulfed in all sorts of mayhem and haven’t had a chance to cook or report on not cooking! Thanks to a full day of Sunday sluggish activity, I’m regaining inspiration for being a balance human (whatever that might look like).
Here’s a little recap of my week and weekend – plus some recommendations for making the best of days ahead.
- #ggfnc Guilford Green Foundation held their annual Gala this weekend in Downtown Greensboro. The evening was a beautiful celebration of ’50 Shades of Green’, much impact for our LGBT Community and my dear friend Ivan’s many accomplishments. Congrats to all.
- #springclean It’s time for a refresh at my house. I’m making my way to spring renewal with new soaps (I love the Grapefruit & Mint French Milled Soap from The Fresh Market) and lots of colorful tulips which I have in more than one room in the house. It’s amazing how much happiness I gain from having fresh flowers in my house. An essential splurge.
- #springboard My respected friends and I released a white paper on our vision for downtown Greensboro this week. We are excited about the community’s enthusiasm and look forward to building a strong team to make positive change in our urban ‘hood. Busy days and hard work are ahead but I’m particularly proud of our momentum.
- #springchicken A whole week without cooking gave me an itch to roast a spring chicken for Sunday Supper on a very cold and wet day in NC. I put a new twist on my usual rosemary chicken – my Spring Chicken was roasted with cipollini onions and fennel bulb and slathered with tarragon, fennel fronds, dijon mustard, lemon and black pepper. With a glass of Pinot Grigio it starts to feel warmer outside despite the chance of sleet! I’ll post the recipe this week.
Have a great week ahead. Hope to see you somewhere.
