When life gives you lemons...

Make Stuffed Artichokes.

or, better yet, have your mommy make them. And invite your wife aka best buddy over.

Sorry I've gone missing. After the computer debacle in San Francisco, I had to recoup my losses and do lots of photo work to pay for the computer.

I was looking to last week to catch up on some blogging, but then I realized I had 2 days off work in a row and decided to fly to Boston to check out the Masters Program in Gastronomy at Boston University.

While I was gone, there was a HUGE storm in MD. I got a call while I was sitting in on the Food in Visual Arts class, telling me that my bedroom had flooded with 4ft of water. FOUR FEET.

Now, I am sitting in my old bedroom at my parents house, and I am procrastinating cleanup.

Life keeps giving me lemons. First the computer, then the flood, and tonight on my way home I got a flat tire. Simple fix, put on the spare, right? Wrong! The jerks who put my tires on over-tightened the bolts and they are impossible to remove. This happened last time I had a flat so I know it was their fault. The good news is I work nearly across the street from the tire place. So , my car is in their lot, and I have to wake up at 6am so my Dad can drop me off at the car place before work. Just what I wanted to deal with tomorrow morning. I didnt want to go to the gym. HA.

Anyway, mom is making stuffed artichokes for dinner tomorrow. I am excited. If I would be there for prep I would photograph, but I wont. I will be working. Maybe you will get a deconstructed photo. Assuming my camera wasn't destroyed in the flood.

I am trying to look on the bright side, really I am. Its not so bad. It could be worse. I hope it doesnt get worse.

On the bright side... it is Baltimore Beer Week next week. In anticipation, Chris and I went to Church Key in DC last week. I have photos. Maybe while I wait for my car to be fixed I will be able to write a post about the awesomeness.

Miss this place.
