For the last while, I've been thinking a lot about how to move forward with the blog. A lot has been going on in the last six months, but so much more is to come. I'm facing a change of situation at work, a busy summer ahead, some big, big changes in the shop and a very special project that might see me shifting direction a little in the next year. Trying to put a sort of plan or schedule on paper seemed impossible.
After much thought, it occurred to me that I needed to lighten up a bit my writing schedule here. Writing, testing, shooting and publishing a recipe for the blog, takes about a month of my 'free' time. This is difficult to quantify as, little by little, my 'free' time has shrunk considerably. When we left the market, I saw an improvement, but only for a short space of time.
I realised now that since the blog got redesigned, I've been a little obsessed with making it more editorial, with more and more recipes and less and less of me... it all got a little too serious. I sort of forgot what got me here in the first place, which was the sheer pleasure to share recipes, a bit of my life and some silliness in between.
So I'm going to shake up things a little here to allow me to keep cooking, writing and doing all the other things that I love doing! I'm going to be less obsessed with perfection and share with you a bit of the many fun and fab things that fill my days... you might not see a recipe every week now, but bear with me, there are great things coming up too. I will also be posting more photos (as you know, I love my instagram!) and I might share bits of a very exciting new project for the shop that has seen us attending some creative meetings with the amazing guys from OVO, our digital design agency, and the uberly talented Alex Carberry.
So this week was all about the office move in my pay job. The charity I work for, Localise, moved offices yesterday, and getting ready for the move was exhausting!! I've had take away once this week and survived the rest of the week on salads and leftovers from the freezer! The exception was the day before yesterday, when I made some chilaquiles verdes. I was really pleased with the results and I hope the recipe appears here in the next week or so! In the meantime, I leave you here with an instagram shot of it! Till next time...
