You may have noticed that lately my food blog is turning into a dessert blog. I’d apologize, but first I must ask, ‘Why are you complaining?’  I eat a lot of randomness, but lately I’ve been repeating a few of my fav main courses so I’m left with the desserts to share. Yum. Yum.

You may have also noticed I’m posting less and less and less lately. There was work, a vacation, and a wedding (not mine!) followed by a whole slew of summer randomness that kept me from blogging (and cooking quite frankly). If you guys want to me to post about how delish Panera bagels taste on vacation after a long Segway tour, I can do it. Lemmeknow.

I’m sitting outside right now and really struggling to find any words worth typing …. mostly because there is a bird saying something very loudly in bird-language about 5 feet from my patio. It sounds a little like he or she might be giving birth, yelling at his/her significant other, or simply having a meltdown. I can’t really translate the exact meaning, but it’s insanely loud and distracting. Chirp. Chirrrrrp. Case in point, I’ve got to be done typing now before I throw something at that bird. I am not a bird murderer. I am not a bird murderer. I am not a bird murderer.
