This is my Boyfriend. Nathan. He is the bomb. And he looks good in a suit.
I have been working occasionally for a talented chef, Leif Hedendal, who I met because of Nicole Lo Bue, another super talented Chef I worked for in Hudson, NY. They taught me the magic of the Galette. Nathan’s neighbors dropped off several flats of peaches that needed to be consumed immediately. It was my birthday on June 14 so I made a Galette with peaches, thyme, a few cherries and blueberries. The right upper hand is the sideboob of a key lime pie brought by Jesse and Kara – the coolest people ever.

Life is not terrible. My mantra earlier this year was “Life is suffering.” I’m not sure which one I believe.
