I should be writing about 4th of july foods. I had PLANS people. BIG PLANS. Plans involving BBQs, homemade sloppy joe sliders on homemade brioche buns, cucumber pickles, baked beans (and I make some mean baked beans), pies, popsicles. But instead I’m on leave of absence from my job. “But Brandi”, you say, “doesn’t that leave you more time for painstakingly tedious kitchen experiments?” Yes, it does. Except I’m on leave because of a nasty flare-up of tendinitis in my left hand, which is the good one. So I’m gonna slow down a tad, let my hand rest a bit. It’s actually strapped into a sinister little sleeve, so I don’t have much choice. I’m banking on making puppy face at my friends until they cook for me, and then I’ll write about that. But until that happens, it’s all takeout and Trader Joes frozen chicken tikka masala meals. I did manage to convince John to chop up our CSA box veggies for a soup, so there’s hope that I don’t die of missing homemade food sadness disease.

Next week I’m heading to Bama for my R&R. Mostly to get out of John’s hair, but also to give my grandma the pleasure of taking care of me. I’ll be gone for 10 days and hoping to return with happy and usable fingers…
