We have been in Seattle about ten days now.
We are still settling in and waiting for all of our things to arrive. Living out a suitcase with no good knives, pots or pans. I have been cooking a bit and even went out and bought myself a new bundt pan… because one can never have enough baking pans, no?
Me and my baking equipment.
We love Seattle so much. Water views from every angle of this city, the Olympic mountains to the West and the Cascades to the East. So much food. So much. And then there are the trees. Like this plum tree right in front of our house, which bloomed overnight. I walk by it every morning and I just cannot help but feel so excited about the smell of its flowers and the prospect of all the wonderful things to come.
And then there are the James Beard Awards.
Today I learned that Cannelle Et Vanille has been nominated once again in the Individual Food Blog category. Needless to say, I feel honored (and perhaps I can admit how nice it would be if I won this time?). So many friends and colleagues are also on that list. Congratulations to all.
I am happy.
