We are terribly sorry that in the whirlwind that is the summer, we have not had the opportunity to update our blog.
Francisco graduated from college!! Whee! For the past month-ish, he has been living in New York City under a Publishing Fellowship at NYU. He just finished his program and now is on the job hunt with a beautiful resumé ready to go!
Mimi finished her first year of graduate school! With straight A’s, too! For the past month, she has been working at the Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School, a residential treatment facility in Hyde Park for Youth. She absolutely loves her job and is revving up to start her second year field placement in August working in a Middle School and a Junior High School in the Northern Suburbs!
Francisco recently came home to Chicago for a little while and of course, Mimi picked him up from the airport to make this delicious meal!
Francisco assembled this GORGEOUS cheese and cracker platter:
It includes: Crackers, Seedy Wheat Bread, Honey Goat Cheese, Cheddar Cheese, Dried Cherries and Apricots, Slice Almonds, Homemade Jam
The highlights include: Sautéed Butternut Squash, Mango Balsamic Glaze, and Golden Raisins.
We are doing well and eating well (to the best of our ability!) We will cook together (or on our own) very very soon!
As this post is being made, Francisco is conjuring up a “dream recipe” to share with you all!
Off to be more productive!
Mimi and Francisco
