We came home from a 10 day vacation to find our fridge broken! Everything inside it had spoiled! I'm talking: half and half, cream cheese, juice- the works! If you've never had this happen before, trust me when I say that it really is a Foodie's worst nightmare.
I was instantly frantic and started to panic. I mean, what's a Food Blogger going to do without a fridge? Seriously! Think about the ramifications here! There's literally nothing I could do without it. I mean, I'd have to buy my ingredients right before cooking, and make sure that we don't have any left overs... or left over ingredients, for that matter. It's SO hard to do, if you think about it. I mean, you're bound to have things like milk and eggs left over from just about any recipe.
So we called a fridge repair guy right away. He came twice over the span of two days, took our fridge apart from top to bottom and couldn't figure out what was wrong with it! He finally suggested that we buy a new one! So we hired another guy. He knew what was wrong with it, but had a hard time fixing it because it's a new "freezer on the bottom" fridge that's constructed differently, blah blah. The drama goes on and on...
On top of that, Hubby and I have been incredibly sick. It was super cold on the east coast, with a couple of blizzards during the time we were there. Coming from mild-weathered, always-around-45-degrees-Seattle, we were entirely unprepared. We've been calling in sick, staying in bed as much as possible, and drinking tons of chicken soup.
So there you have it. This is what we've been up against all week, since coming home on Sunday!
Anyway, the main point of my ramblings it to say this:
I'm sorry that I will not be able to post anything this week, as a result of the disaster area that is my home right now! But rest assured that I will for sure return with awesome recipies first thing next week! So just bare with me until then. =)
Boy, the holidays always turns out to be such a crazy time, doesn't isn't it?
I hope everyone had a great holiday season and that yours turned out better than mine! hehe. And have a wonderfully happy new year! Can you believe it's already 2010?! I'm looking forward to trying some pretty amazing recipes in the new year to come! =)
