Just wanted to pop in and share a few non-food-related thoughts on this lovely day. (Wait, who am I kidding? Everything in my mind relates back to food!)
First I want to thank you all for your awesome support during my Passover Prep Series. It was really fun to put those recipes together for you, and whether you are Jewish or not, I hope you found something you liked and maybe even learned something new.
If you are observing Passover, how’s it going for you? What’s the best Passover food you’ve enjoyed so far? Have you been tempted to break it?
And for those celebrating Easter this year – I’ll fully admit that I’ve seen some fabulous sounding Easter recipes all over the blogs that are making me wish Easter didn’t fall during Passover and that some fabulous cooking friends would invite me to partake. But since that’s not the case, I will live vicariously through you – what are you making for Easter this weekend?
The weather in Massachusetts is going to be fabulous for the next three days and I can’t even decide what I want to do! I think we’ll kick it off by grilling these spiced chicken & grape kabobs tonight and maybe get to work on assembling our first-ever raised bed square foot garden tomorrow. Ben picked up all the materials a few weeks ago! Now we need to build, and I need to figure out what we are planting and when. And I’d be totally silly not to go on a nice run tomorrow, in a tank top of course to get some much needed color! The only thing I can imagine missing this weekend is a trip to a farmers’ market. We’re still months away from that here in MA, and I am waiting anxiously.
Finally, I want to share a giveaway from Jill over at Quarterlifewellness. Jill is so sweet to put together this awesome package including some breakfast sweets indulgent sweets, and summer-mood-inducing cocktail blends. Go check it out and enter to win!
Speaking of giveaways, I feel a bit behind – I’ve never done one and I keep thinking I should! For those of you who have done giveaways on your blog, do you typically purchase the prizes or have they been donated as samples by the manufacturers? If the latter, do you seek them out, or do they find you? Have you found that offering giveaways has affected your blog traffic significantly?
