Now that spring cleaning and Easter are over, I have been leisurely recovering by savoring these special days of "sweater weather," when one needn't be burdened with thinking too hard about what to wear, be it bundling up or doffing down. I would be remiss in not confessing that I have been remiss in my blogging duties these past few weeks, but all that will change shortly. There is much blog-hopping, reading and commenting to catch-up on, as well as designing a new home page; refining, yet again, my blogroll; and planning for a slew of new recipes to share with you in months to come. In meantime, please allow me to slowly sip what remains of an indulgent purchase of estate Darjeeling tea, my photo of which appears in the current issue of the Italian WU Magazine.
The tin is almost empty, now, with just enough tiny, twisted leaves to keep a pot brewing for a few more days. Please bear with me while I finish off the very last drops of golden liquor.
My very best wishes to everyone for recent holidays and equinoxes celebrated, whoever you are and wherever you live, and repeated thanks for making My Legume Love Affair the monthly success that it is. Laurie of Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska has just posted a blockbuster round-up for MLLA9, and Courtney of Coco Cooks is busy hosting MLLA10, featuring your lovely recipes for starters and desserts.
