Beyond the Kitchen

Let It Be Sunday, 178!


Hello dear friends!

I did one of those things where I hit publish on this blog post… well, in my sleep.  No joke. Apparently that’s a thing that happens. 

I’ve been in Dallas this weekend working really very hard on a video shoot. I’ll tell ya – a 4am call time is all fine and good until it’s 9:30 pm and you’re publishing hot blog content apparently in your sleep.  I feel like we’ve been together long enough to laugh it off though, right? 

I’ll be in Dallas for another few days touring around, eating all of the Emporium Pie and barbecue and good sushi.

Judging by the hotel pool party yesterday (my goodness!), folks are celebrating 4th of July this weekend and I hope that means you’re getting together with friends and eating potato salad in multiple varieties.  

Here’s the offering this week:
