Then I found a work from home position taking customer service calls in the evening. Coffee in the AM, Phone calls in the PM = very little time for the family, and let time for the blog.
Not that I didn't have gobs of blogging ideas, I just managed to avoid finding the time to write them down. That's my story and excuses.
Fast forward to now, it's nearly spring and I'm ready to rebalance my life a bit. Tastefully Simple, heretofore, virtually unknown in the Hayesville NC area is starting to pick up as I talk with people and get to know them enough that they'll let me into their homes to do a taste-testing party.
Of course, once they try the products, they fall in love! Plus we have a lovely batch of new products that I have been playing with this month.
At present I have two new favorite things.
1. The Borgias on Showtime, my new favorite show. It stars Jeremy Irons as the worst Pope ever and it is based very loosely on historic record.
And 2. Dill Pickle Dip
RECIPE: BEST TUNA MELT EVER
Take one packet mix it with 1 cup light mayo and 1 cup sour cream. Then divide it into 2 seperate bowls. Use one bowl as a veggie dip.
Take the other cup and add 2 cans of tuna, 1 cup diced celery and 1/2 a cup of sliced scallions.
Mix and put in to pita halves (should make 4-6 halves)
Top the dill pickle tuna salad with a slice of cheese and pop in an oven at 350 for about 10 minutes .
Enjoy the best Tuna Melt you have ever had.
