Summer Updates and HousekeepingPosted in : announcements, Uncategorized on by : Jeanette Schramm
Hello, dear readers!
I have a few things I would like to say. First off, thank you for reading my blog this semester! It’s been a ton of fun to write and it resulted in a pretty good grade! I will be continuing my blog over the summer and onward, though I have a co-op this summer, and I’m not sure what the workload for that will entail. I will still try to post twice a week, and I’ll let you know if that changes for any reason.
Secondly, I wanted to apologize for the content shift, these past few weeks. I know the recipes were a bit more mundane and the writing was shorter, but I’m glad I was able to get something out there for you guys. The past few weeks were when all of my final projects, papers, and exams took place, so I was bogged down and rarely home. Since my summer job is a telecommute writing job, I hope to spend some time outside of my comfort zone, cooking things I might not usually make.
Thirdly, this coming week, I’m going to be out of state. I’m heading west, to Boise, Idaho, with the boyfriend for a graduation and a couple of birthdays. During that time, I’ll be away from my kitchen and can’t guarantee I’ll have any posts for you (I haven’t had the chance to make any in advance, unfortunately). What I might do is write some restaurant reviews, if I go out, and I might get the chance to make something with the boyfriend’s mother, but I can’t make any guarantees. In light of that announcement, I’m announcing a probable hiatus for the next week/week and a half (I forget when I’m coming home).
Fourth, I am removing my “Fans Say” page. I may replace it in the future, but I feel like it has become something that isn’t quite what I intended. I may make a restaurant reviews page or a favorite recipes page, but I’m not certain what I want to do yet. I’ll keep you posted. I’m also taking down my “Why I Started this Blog” page, now that the class is over.
Fifth, I plan on buying a domain of my own, this summer! I’m going to try for “apartmenteats.com,” which is currently available, but if it’s gone by the time I get there, I’ll see what I can do. I plan on doing that shortly after I get back from the Wild West. Wish me luck!
Sixth, I will be going on a plane trip and a road trip, this July, and it may or may not run into my posting dates. Should that be the case, I’ll try to accommodate, but since I’ll be AFK (Away From Kitchen) in that time, I might do a bit on dives along the way. The trip will be back out to Boise and then a drive down to Salt Lake City, for a concert. Just for a change of pace, depending on what we find (other than large temples and salt flats), I might do a supplementary post about it, if not a regular post.
Finally, I’m taking suggestions! In fact, I would love suggestions! Even if it’s something vague like “Make something with fish” or “Make something in a slow cooker” or even “Make something you have historically screwed up” (I’m actually probably going to venture into that realm again, if not this summer, then this fall). I have been posting some unusual culinary creations to my Facebook page, which I plan on trying.
Thanks for your diligence and support, and I look forward to more fun and feedback!
Here’s a picture of a pineapple slice with a face I drew on it. It was a Denny’s menu.
