Friends! I have so much to tell you about, but no time to do it. A lot has changed since I was here writing about the most delicious homemade granola bars ever. In fact, the last two weeks have been a whirlwind, and I expect the next few weeks to get crazier. First off, we found a place to live. It’s ridiculously close to where I lived in Baltimore in college, but I’ve decided I’m fine with it because the apartment is amazing. It has a yard! a patio! a garden! and a wood burning fire place! Not to mention beautiful dark wood floors and a pretty great kitchen. A lot of other things have changed that aren’t ready to be released on the internet, but it’s all good news and we are very happy.
Unfortunately, all this change (while exciting) means that I won’t be around here for the next week or two. Perhaps if a certain cable company didn’t have a monopoly in our area and didn’t think it was appropriate to make someone who is simply transferring service 40 miles wait a week for internet, it would be a different story. But a certain cable company does have a monopoly and also thinks it’s appropriate to charge someone $20 extra a month for less services just because they’re moving. Stupid cable company. Anyway, I’ve digressed. Maybe the delicious combination of raspberry, mozzarella, and mint will calm me. It’s done that before! Seriously though, I know that this is all over the place but these skewers are delicious and my brain is all over the place because my apartment looks like this:
Which is why I’ve been pretending that I’m here instead:
You should too. It’d be a great place to have a picnic. With some skewers.
Raspberry, Mint, & Mozzarella Skewers
1 pint of fresh raspberries
1 small container of fresh mozzarella balls
1 cup of fresh mint
On the skewers, alternate mozzarella, raspberries, and mint. Chill and serve.
For a twist, drizzle with a balsamic vinegar reduction sauce.
