The Lexingtonienne



I accidentally took a long vacation from the blog. See what happened was, my in-laws came to visit from Philadelphia for a week.

Bill & Maggie

I decided that if THEY were on vacation, then I would be on vacation too. I was going to get right back to blogging after “our” vacation week.

But then… the day after they left, Eleanora came down with a ferocious stomach virus that lasted for a full 14 days. Without getting into the details, this is pretty much how our past 2 weeks have looked:

We even had to postpone a trip to Kentucky because Eleanora wasn’t well enough to fly. Sad.

Now – FINALLY – she is better this week, and our Kentucky trip is rescheduled for next week. We’re going to have a nice long visit with these precious folks…

… and then we’ll be back to LA in time for Easter.

While I’m gone, I hope you’ll make this fabulous Corned Beef & Cabbage (pdf) on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a crock pot recipe that is truly one of the simplest recipes I’ve ever made. And the braised cabbage? It’s beyond. Really, I never had any idea cabbage could taste so good. Let me know how yours turns out.


In the meantime, wish me luck as I fly alone with a toddler at the dawn of my third trimester. Yikes!

    I’m so glad you didn’t get the stomach virus.

    Normally I would not try a cabbage recipe, but since you changed my mind about brussel sprouts, I’ll give them a try.

    Have a wonderful time in Lex.

    Bonnie, you HAVE to try the cabbage. It’s SO good!
