Well…I feel like I have been away from my blog for some time now…
We had a wonderfully blissful time in Nantucket last week on vacation. It is such a great place to visit and I am so grateful that we enjoy the island every August for a week. The landscaping and flowers on this island are simply gorgeous!
I feel blessed. We biked every day to the beach. How tough is that?
For me, vacation that involves being outside, exercising, eating delicious healthy foods and being with those I love….is pretty darn perfect.
Sadly, my brother Dave passed away last month after a long courageous fight with multiple myeloma and we grieved our loss and celebrated his life with family and friends this past Saturday in his hometown of Oak Park, Illinois. Tough disease….even tougher brother. My brother was full of life…he was a musician and had a magical way about him. Truly the life of the party. It’s so difficult to say good bye to someone you love and I know many of you completely understand the sadness of loss.
So…I have been somewhat amiss with blog updates…and really life in general. So, now you know why. Not that you need to know…but, I am pretty much an open book. 🙂
So, today, for lunch I made this pretty darn tasty mustard-y pretzel chicken dish. I absolutely love the combo of pretzels and mustard. I used some gluten free pretzel crumbs I made in my food processor….
…and mixed up a combo of grainy and smooth mustards with a touch of thyme.
