The Omnivore’s Hundred.

(Or, ‘When a Blogger Feels Guilty for Being a Slackass and Not Posting.’)

I’ve been meaning to post things lately – I’ve made cultured butter, coleslaw, black bean and sprout burritos, tortillas and cauliflower steaks lately. Pictures are waiting (im)patiently to be uploaded. The words exist… somewhere.

But between the barn, wonky schedules (not necessarily my own), martial arts, the dog, the office, classwork (managerial accounting) and getting kicked by a 2500 lb. draft horse this past weekend… I’ve been a little unable to succumb to the posting bug.

I’m hoping that this little filler will last some of you long enough for me to get back in the loop of things and get back to doing right by you all. For you veteran bloggers… how do you do it all?!

As a sidenote, did anyone ever think that it would be this hard to wash your hair, much less the dishes, when you can’t get one hand wet?
