Day One

If you have  been reading over the past few weeks you have probably been hearing a lot about the IL Bar and not so much about inspiring recipes in my kitchen.  Studying for the bar exam makes you go on autopilot.  Every day is a new subject that just gets put on an endless list and the last 2 weeks are filled with a 10-12 hour-a-day impossible review schedule and then suddenly it is the night before the Bar.  Dave and I made a pact to wake up early this morning to get our body clocks in line, review until 10AM and then clean our apartment for the rest of the day, finishing with a early night of fantastic pizza and craft beer.


 I just wanted to thank y’all for your kind words of encouragement this summer.  I promise to be back with plenty of new things to share with you. I have been taking pictures of all the colorful bounty at the market  and eaten simple meals but I just haven’t shared them with you.  We are taking a post-Bar trip to TX to attend the wedding of one of my favorite sorority sisters and to take some law school friends to float the river and eat great tex-mex, bbq and fuzzy’s queso, and I will be sharing our fun with you.
