Welcome (back) to New York
8.24.10 § 10 Comments
You’d think that coming back to New York after such an emotional trip home would be a return to normalcy. Not so, unfortunately. I came home this time to a problem at our apartment that couldn’t be ignored, a lease ending at the end of the month, the prospect of having less than 13 days to find an apartment in NYC that is both livable and affordable (which is laughable, considering my many unpaid exploits), and lastly, my first week of juggling two internships, both of which are supposed to be three days a week (with some smiling and sweet-talking I’ve been able to figure things out). Needless to say, blogging has fallen by the wayside for the time being. It’s really a bummer for me, because now that I’m finally starting to get enough readers to feel really excited about, I’ve it the most chaotic patch of my life that I’ve experienced, well, ever. So if you’re still here dear reader, thanks for reading this and for bearing with me.
I have been cooking sporadically, despite the craziness. Unfortunately, I’ve no new recipes to post. I’ve been relying on those old favorites that you should make immediately if you haven’t already: panko-crusted chicken with mustard-maple pan sauce, garlicky hoisin beef, and balsamic grilled chicken sandwich with brie and mango chutney. It’s been funny for me to see the recipes that I rely on when things get nuts. It makes me wonder if any of you out there have some quick and reliable gems that you turn to time after time. I could use a little variety. And I’m guessing it will be a week or two before things calm down. So please, share with me your favorites in the comments!
Lastly, I’m not sure if I mentioned this, but the internship I’m starting tomorrow is for a little publication some of you may have heard of—Saveur magazine. God, I’m nervous! I hope I don’t trip and fall or anything. Wish me luck!
