Hello hello!

How insane is it that this year is now more than half over?! I feel like my brain is still stuck in the first week of March and the last four months have been a big haze.

Although I definitely feel like the “novelty” (that is totally not the right word, but an appropriate one escapes me at the moment) of quarantine has definitely passed. In March and April, I was coloring with the kids, building big puzzles, and working on my crochet projects, not going as hard with work. But, over the last couple of months, things have slowly returned to normal, and I miss that slow pace that we seemed to have discovered. Wondering how it is that things slipped back even though we’re not going anywhere or doing anything and how to get it back! Do you have similar feelings?

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
