To all of you faithful MTK readers out there, I just want to say a quick thank you for hanging out with me day after day!! I hope that you have found a new family favorite recipe here!!
But I also want to say sorry! I want y’all to know that I do start every week with a schedule of recipes to make and every intention on posting every weekday. But I know that hasn’t been happening lately. And let me just give you a glimpse into my excuse as to why…
*and let me just start by saying you are not about to hear ANY pregnancy news, I realized as I was typing, this sounded like it could be some sort of an announcement excuse*
Meet my blogging assistant…
If this kid doesn’t nap, I don’t work. If my stand mixer comes out on the counter, her stool comes in to the kitchen. If I need a spoon, she needs a spoon. The fact that she still has all of her fingertips is a miracle because I don’t know how many times while I’m chopping vegetables she has reached up to grab what I’m chopping to ask what it is.
And believe me, I’m in no way complaining. I (99% of the time) love that she wants to spend time with me and wants to cook with me. But I also know I would rather spend an hour at the library watching a magic show with her than stressing over making sure I have a new recipe posted!
So I promise y’all lovelies, new recipes will always be coming, but if I miss a day, just know it didn’t go to waste!! 🙂
