Back to school!
Back to life?
First of all, a little confession and apology: the August wallpaper calendar was off by one day. I really apologize if this caused any sort of scheduling conflicts or confusion. By the time I noticed the calendar was wrong, I was too lazy to correct it. Plus, none of you complained, so I figured I’d just stay quiet and see what would happen. I’m very sorry.
Now that’s done, let’s talk about September. I love September. Are we surprised when I say, I love school? If I had been diligent about posting on September 1st, I would’ve been able to tell you that exactly a year ago, my pastry school chronicles began – it was my first day at Le Cordon Bleu Paris! I can’t believe how quickly this past year has gone. It definitely does not feel like a year ago I was constantly on edge worrying about scary chefs and sharp knives and disastrous pastry and whatnots. Also, I’m sure if you asked me a year ago what I’d be doing now, I probably would’ve told you that I’d be back at work. Hmm.
September, though, is also a time when seasons change, when leaves start to turn beautiful colours, and when big bushels of apples and pears appear at farmers’ markets. I am looking forward to Autumn (not Fall, apparently) very much this year, since I have a lot more time to play with the produce that’s heading my way (see? making lemonade with my lemons).
I am extremely aware that this blog has been missing some recipes for a while. I’m still in the midst of a re-design, along with getting updating on a lot of the content that’s been published, so I’ll get to it soon!
